Our people

We have created a culture of openness and transparency where all of our people can make a difference.

As well as a distinctive global culture, we have developed six core principles, known as our CLEARR values.

  • Collaboration: ask for help, give help – we work well together
  • Leadership:  have courage and inspire others – we challenge each other to be the best we can be
  • Excellence:  find a better way every time – we never get complacent
  • Agility:  think broadly, act quickly – we thrive in change
  • Respect: listen and understand, be forthright – we create honest relationships
  • Responsibility: use influence wisely – we own our actions

Our CLEARR values underpin our culture and how we do business – they are embedded throughout our business and set the parameters of how our people behave with their colleagues, clients and the world at large.

Below are a few stories from our people and how they live out our values everyday.
