Personal Statement of Values and Standards

Organisations that commit themselves to establishing diversity in the workforce and which deliver on that commitment, are proven to be more successful measured against every metric than others that do not make such a commitment. They attract top talent, improve customer focus, increase staff satisfaction and ensure informed decision making, leading to better outcomes.

Encouraging diversity whether in the form of gender, race, ethnicity, culture, sexual orientation or religion is morally the right thing to do but it also provides competitive advantage by attracting and retaining quality people.

To succeed we need the very best.  Our people are truly our advantage. The RAF wins only with them.

Each of us has a responsibility to turn individuals into a team. We do so by living, though our behaviours, our values, standards and ethos, creating an inclusive environment and proving every day that we respect, value and appreciate each and every individual. Each belongs to the team and each is integral to success in everything we do.

 I commit to doing my very best to make our people feel that they belong.
