All of us are responsible for ensuring we live our values
Fair - We treat everyone we work with fairly. We do everything we can to make sure our decisions are free from bias.
Open - All our people are encouraged to openly share their opinions and views. We are honest and make responsible decisions and we speak up for what is right. We believe that honesty, respect and a commitment to open dialogue are the foundations of trust.
Community - Our communities connect us. We don’t just respect differences - we celebrate them. We believe that changing the country for the better starts with inclusion and to create that better future, we need people with diverse backgrounds, perspectives and abilities. That’s why we are committed to creating a workplace where all kinds of people can come together and cooperate across teams to work and respect each other and to deliver our best work. It's when everyone's voice is heard and valued that we are inspired to go beyond what people thought was possible.
