Our Governing Principles are the behaviours we expect throughout Serco. We must all live by the Governing principles in our dealings with colleagues, customers, suppliers, partners, shareholders and communities.
The Governing Principles are:
Foster an entrepreneurial culture
We are passionate about building innovative and successful Serco Businesses. We succeed by encouraging and generating new ideas. We trust our people to deliver. We embrace change and, by taking measured risks, encourage creative thinking.
Enable our people to excel
Our success comes from our commitment and energy to go the extra mile. We are responsible to each other and can expect support when we need it most. We expect our people to achieve more by recognising and harnessing the power of individuals. We value people for their knowledge, and ideas and potential to contribute.
Deliver our promises
We do what we say we will do to meet expectations. We only promise what we can deliver. If we make mistakes we put them right. We are clear about what we need to achieve and we expect to make a fair profit.
Build trust and respect
We build respect by operating in a safe, socially responsible, consistent and honest manner. We never compromise on safety and we always operate in an ethical and responsible manner. We listen. In doing so, we treat others as we would wish to be treated ourselves and challenge when we see something is wrong. We integrate with our communities.
