At Arm, we are guided by our core beliefs that reflect our rare culture and guide our decisions, defining how we work together to defy ordinary and shape extraordinary:

We, not I

  • Take daily responsibility to make the Global Arm community thrive.
  • No individual owns the right answer. Brilliance is collective.
  • Information is crucial, share it.
  • Realise that we win when we collaborate, and that everyone misses out when we don't.

Passion for progress

  • Our differences are our strength. Widen and mix up your network of connections.
  • Difficult things can take unexpected directions. Stick with it.
  • Make feedback positive and expansive, not negative and narrow.
  • The essence of progress is that it can't stop. Grow with it and own your own progress.

Be your brilliant self

  • Be quirky not egocentric.
  • Recognise the power in saying "I don't know".
  • Make trust our default position.
