A compelling purpose and authentic values are the absolute bedrock of an outstanding culture.
Your purpose is your reason why. It’s the driving force behind your business and ultimately determines why people will choose to work with you. Your values are the behaviours that underpin your purpose- they are ingrained principles that guide all business actions.
Purpose without values is like a destination with no path.
Values attract the right people to your business, create a shared sense of belonging, help you stand out amongst competitors, and, help you to achieve business goals through total clarity on behavioural expectations.
When your purpose and values are aligned, clear, and properly embedded in your ways of working, employees know what’s expected of them and feel supported to perform to their best, clients are delighted by the service they receive, and the business thrives.
"Proud Consulting supported the development of our behaviours framework and statements, providing insightful guidance to and critical evaluation of our project’s work. Vic’s experience, expertise and passion in this field were invaluable in ensuring that we produced a set of behaviours statements which addressed the culture of our organisation and in developing a programme to embed the behaviours into the fabric of our Charity. I would strongly recommend Proud Consulting. "
- Michael Knight, Chief People Officer
