Culture and values

Our purpose unites us - to drive commerce and prosperity through our unique diversity - and together with our brand promise, to be here for good. These are achieved by how we each live our valued behaviours.
Our valued behaviours were defined by all of us, they shape our culture and reflect what we expect of ourselves and each other. When you work with us, you’ll see how we value difference and advocate inclusion. Together we:

  • Do the right thing, value braveness, challenge one another, and live with integrity, while putting the client at the heart of what we do
  • Never settle, continuously striving to improve and innovate, keeping things simple and learning from both the things that go well, and those that don’t!
  • Are better together, creating an inclusive place where each person is valued for being themselves, collectively working toward sustainable solutions
