The culture within a workforce reflects everything about a business and without some form of structure that attitude within permeates throughout, it influences colleagues’ attitudes towards each other, management and customers.
Setting out strong virtues and purpose allows everyone to understand the ethos that is to be expected. It shows employees how the Leadership Team and owners’ value them and how they can be empowered, whilst giving customers comfort knowing exactly who they are dealing with.
Many companies have a mission statement and values, however, it’s often the case that they remain on paper and never become part of the company culture.
Churchill’s Purpose and Virtues are considered to be the very core of the business and throughout all levels, everyone is encouraged to cement them within their daily working lives. They are so much more than just some terminology on a piece of paper, they reflect how the company treats everyone involved.
‘For me it’s simple. Our virtues represent the behaviours of our people within the organisation. The heart and soul of each individual is put into the business in order to make it a success. Our virtues define who we are – humility, passion and people first. With these behaviours executed consistently, I know that collectively we make Churchill a great place to be part of and the partner of choice for our clients.’ John Melling – Director
‘Our Purpose and Virtues are powerfully yet simple, its what our teams deliver every day and are constantly at the forefront of what we all do. These are not simply words that look good on a marketing piece they genuinely are what we demonstrate and believe. I have never worked with a team that epitomizes a culture in such a powerful way that the people at Churchill do, it’s an exciting time.’ Andy Farley – Operations Director
“Our Virtues are everything we live and breathe on a daily basis. They are what define us not only as colleagues but as people. These Virtues are led from the top and create the solid foundations I can then build on within my Operations team. ” Luke Toker – National Operations Manager
“I personally believe that our virtues are what drives the culture within our organisation. The people within our business strive to make an impact and genuinely care and want to be a part of the journey. I’m confident that each employee enjoys coming into work and our virtues are important attributes which demonstrate our people and our company.” Emily Macaulay – Client Relationship Manager
Churchill Security strongly believes that a purpose and virtues are not a token gesture, there is an absolute commitment to achieving a culture that embraces and nurtures their purpose and virtues. We believe that Humility, Passion and People First creates a business that will not only be a place that people want to work but one that other businesses want to work with and aspire to.
Here at Churchill, we are all on the adventure together, we are creating a company that we sincerely believe in. Our objective is to make a positive impact on people’s lives, as well as build a strong and profitable business. Consistent with our virtues, each person is important; each has the opportunity and obligation to make a difference.
Self-awareness and the ability to focus on yourself and how your actions, thoughts & emotions affect those around you can contribute to positive influence.
Honesty is always the best policy, we can’t all hit the bullseye every time, so understanding our strengths and weaknesses only empowers us even more. We believe that humility and being humble is a virtuous strength, not a downfall, allowing you to understand, respect and be considerate of the views and opinions of those around you.
Showing appreciation, gratitude and kindness are principles we all strongly believe in, above all doing the right thing is at the forefront of our purpose.
Here at Churchill, we are passionate about everything we do and want everyone to feel that energy. It’s not all day every day that we are able to feel the passion but if you’re always the hardest worker in the room then you bring everyone along for the ride with your enthusiasm and determination.
Extending that positivity allows for improved outcomes across the spectrum from colleagues to leaders and customers. We are passionate about not only involving everyone in our journey but making sure that desire turns into results for all those involved.
When people are happy and content, they become more successful with their ambitions so when we put people first everyone benefits. Our People First approach relates to all aspects of our business from colleagues through to customers, we are committed to bringing value repeatedly without exception.
We want to make sure we are always doing the right thing and we continually evaluate and assess how our policies affect our people first approach.
“Only when we feel we are in a ‘Circle of Safety’ will we pull together as a unified team, better able to survive and thrive regardless of the conditions outside.”– Simon Sinek
