Our vision is to make working life better for everyone in Britain.
Our values help us to achieve this vision. We believe:
- our customers matter – we listen to their needs so we can provide a good service
- our future matters – we continue to improve as individuals and as an organisation
- our people matter – everyone in our organisation helps us succeed
- our work matters – we want to make a difference in the world of work
- increase our impact, so that we make a positive and lasting change to working life
- extend our reach, so that we inform and support more workplaces across Great Britain
- be more responsive, so that we are adding value when and where it’s most needed
- invest in our future, so that we achieve organisational excellence that's sustainable and makes best use of our resources
We’ll achieve our vision through three strategic aims. These are:
- advising on good practice in everyday working life
- resolving disputes and managing conflict
- influencing employment policy and debate
These aims form our strategy for 2016 to 2021.
