This goes without saying. But it’s important, so we’ll say it: respect, support and understanding are the very foundations of our value of collaboration and working together.
What does it mean for us?
It’s such a simple thing, but looking out for each other makes so much difference. Everyone has the right to feel safe and secure at work. Everyone. We treat every single person with dignity and respect. We respect their privacy. Colleagues, suppliers, partners, clients. Everyone. Did we say that enough? Everyone.
We are all responsible.
Our policies help us clearly define what doing things right is. We can’t all walk around with them all day, but we can stop and think before we act:
- Is this fair to everyone?
- Are you okay?
- Am I respectful even when I disagree?
- Could my workplace be made safer or healthier? What can I do and who can help me?
- Do I have biases and preconceived notions that I should work on?
