Serco Values - Care

We care deeply about the services we provide, and the communities we serve, and we look after each other.

We work together to deliver high-quality public services, often of great importance to the nation and the communities we serve.  We take care of each other, and those we serve, and we aim to make a positive difference to people’s lives.

Care and the behaviours we live by:

Our people

  • Invite, listen to and respect views of others inside and outside Serco

  • Are conscious that they cannot do it all themself and ask for help when necessary

  • Work well with people who have different ideas, perspectives and backgrounds

  • Understand how their behaviours can be interpreted and consider the impact they have on others

  • Understand the importance of others’ feelings 

  • Respect confidentiality and be good custodians of our customer and employee personal data

  • Use appropriate language, which respects others

  • Treat others as they would want to be treated

  • Do everything they can to make a positive difference to our customers and communities
