Our six company values help to define what we stand for. They articulate how we behave and what we expect from each other. In turn, they influence our culture. Every company has a culture - we choose to have one that we love and we all strive to keep it that way. All of us follow these values and believe in them.
Respecting Each Other
Treating people with respect makes our company a nicer place to work. We value peoples opinions and we listen to each other. We are sensitive to other peoples feelings, concerns and roles. In this way we can learn from each other and be considerate to each other. If things do not go to plan, we understand, help and support each other and as a result we are assured of reciprocal support.
Supporting Our Business
Acorn provides our wages and provides opportunities for us to develop and achieve in our working lives. Reciprocally, we look after Acorn as if it is our own business. We all choose to work at Acorn and we all take responsibility for our own actions and performance. We understand that reaching Acorn’s financial objectives facilitates our security and growth.
We are all part of Acorn as it grows and develops as a business into the future. We think outside the box and challenge ourselves in all situations, pushing ourselves out of our comfort zones. Together we are constantly changing and are creating a smarter, bigger and better business.
