Culture and Values
Our services differentiate us from our competitors. But this goes deeper. The fundamental difference at ALS comes from the unique culture and values that underpin the way we run the company and the way we behave.
We value working with our customers in a collaborative, flexible and imaginative way. We understand the principles and passions that motivate managers and owners and we share their ethos and standards of conduct. We encourage social responsibility and try to treat people in the way we would wish to be treated. Our most powerful tool in improving performance is to instil a more stimulating culture where people feel they can personally make a difference.
Without trained, motivated and inspired employees, we wouldn’t be able to make a success of our business.
That’s why we’re committed to communicating with, supporting and developing everyone who works at ALS. We have a strong culture based on clear values – and we monitor how well we’re putting them into practice. We’re always in touch with customers to make sure they’re satisfied – we believe that’s the best way to safeguard jobs and develop new ones. And we make sure we work with customers who enable us to treat our people with dignity.
At the heart of our approach is our People Strategy. It’s designed to ensure we continue to have the people and expertise we need to face today’s challenges and those ahead of us. It recognises that a good business depends on good people.
ALS as a business is inherently diverse and our workforce reflects our communities. We believe that our ability to embrace this diversity within the common framework of our vision, our governance and our values has been critical to our success. However we still need to promote diversity and ensure that all our employees are able to be successful and happy regardless of their background. We aim to protect, support and encourage all our employees.
