How we work is integral for keeping us accountable to each other and
our clients and for driving excellence.
Our values are:
We recognise colleagues as complex, diverse human beings with rich lives at work and beyond. While we demand commitment and quality from each other, we are vigilant about our mutual duty of care to support and encourage each other in active recuperation when pressures are too high or resilience is running low.
We embrace personal discomfort in service of our colleagues and clients while taking pride in the personal ownership of outcomes and our commitment to fulfilling promises.
Our word – to our colleagues and clients – is our promise. We are transparent, thoughtful and candid in our interactions to maintain unshakable confidence that colleagues’ behaviour will be reliable, consistent and congruent.
Wherever possible, we anticipate the needs of colleagues and clients, and we always contribute eagerly and with immediacy.
It’s impossible to make no mistakes, but our daily focus is to eliminate unnecessary and avoidable errors in our quest for constant improvement.
