Culture and Company Values
Our culture is based on the four values set out below, shaping individual behaviours and, in turn, company behaviour. Our values influence our dealings with colleagues, clients, suppliers, shareholders and the communities in which we work.
Straightforward. We speak plainly, we are open minded, accurate, diligent and clear in what we do and say.
Trustworthy. We are transparent and direct. We seek and tell the truth, simply and respectfully. We deliver to a high standard, repeatedly. We do what’s right, not what’s convenient.
Engaging. We're a team. We all choose to be here and we choose to give it our best. Our team members strive to make the team do better. We impress by example. We are curious.
Professional. Our employees own it. Each employee is accountable. We improve whatever we can. We commit to the success of our clients and colleagues.
