High­ways Eng­land - Why Work With Us?

 

Values & Behaviours

 

Our organisation has three main imperatives - safety, customer service and delivery, which set out what we do. Our values; Safety, Ownership, Passion, Integrity and Teamwork describe how we do it, how we treat each other, and expect to be treated, how we want to be seen as an organisation and how we do business.

We are proud of our five core values. They are our guiding principles, the standards that guide everything we do, both as individuals and together. For each value, there is a set of behaviours, together with examples of how they are demonstrated by everyone within our business. These behaviours are embedded in our everyday processes, like performance management, recruitment and learning. Every employee is expected to live our values and demonstrate our behaviours in their roles.  

Safety

Safety is both what we set out to achieve, and how we live our lives. As a core value and one of our three imperatives, we set out to protect and promote safety every day.

Integrity

It underpins how we behave as individuals. We're true to ourselves and we deliver on our promises. We are open and honest, we strive to do the right thing and we value each other’s contributions.

Passion

We actively demonstrate our commitment and enthusiasm. We care about the business, our contribution and how we go about our duties. We care about each other and our customers, and we relish the chance to improve every day.

Ownership

We take responsibility for making things happen. We're all accountable for our own performance. What’s more, we take the initiative to stretch ourselves and do more than 'what's expected'. Then when we meet customer and business goals, we celebrate our success.

Teamwork

Working well together is fundamental because our business is inclusive. We value diversity and everyone’s talents. So, we work together to achieve our goals and we support each other to get the best results. We build strong relationships and we have great conversations.
