As enthusiastic partners: innovation is at the core of everything we do
It should be no surprise that innovation is our core value. We also think it’s important to reflect that we are enthusiastic partners.
We want to engage with our members. More than that, it excites and motivates us to do so.
It is our core mandate as a research association.
We’re trusted for our technical excellence
We recognise that our members want to see us as an extension of their own capabilities.
Our members may not want or need to engage with us on a daily or regular basis, but they want us to be available to support them when they do need us. And that is usually when things have gotten complicated! So, we need to have technical capability that can be trusted and relied upon.
We’re impartial partners supporting industry
It’s important that we remain independent and represent our members and industry overall.
We don’t have a hidden agenda and we aren’t unduly influenced by anyone.
We remain impartial and represent the facts as we observe them.
We’re pioneers of new thinking
We trial new approaches and encourage creativity.
We are thought leaders for our industry. That requires us to be original and imaginative, as well as excellent.
We’re responsible for our actions and deliver on our promises
If we say we will do something, we will work hard to make sure we deliver on that promise.
We walk our talk.
We’re seekers of diverse perspectives
We take a multi-faceted approach and appreciate diverse thinking.
Different perspectives provide a more holistic understanding of any problem and potential solution.
We’re passionate learners who accept the challenge to think differently
It’s our job to be the catalyst for innovation in our industry.
In order to deliver on that mission, we have to always challenge ourselves to think differently and learn new approaches. We adapt to what the facts tell us, and we look for new ways to collect and analyse data to ensure our recommendations and conclusions are well considered.
We’re focused on total wellbeing and safety
We recognise that life is a juggling act and that in order to function at our best, we have to have things in balance.
Our lives and livelihoods have to protect the things that are important to us. This includes our health, safety and wellbeing.
We share our ideas and knowledge and value the contributions of others
We actively engage with our members, stakeholders and community and use an open innovation model.
We create knowledge for it to be shared and to have broad impact.
We also seek knowledge from others so that we can build our own capability through diverse networks.
