WHEB is a mission-driven business. This mission is ‘to advance sustainability and create prosperity through positive impact investments’.
Our mission is supported by a strong culture and core values that guide our behaviour. Following a team away day in May 2022, we updated our values in a process that was intended to ensure that they reflect our culture and team ethos. The values provide a strong basis for our relationships with each other and with our stakeholders.
WHEB is built on five core values which support our mission and shape our culture.
They help align staff to our purpose and identity, and enable stakeholders to understand how we do business. Co-created with the team, the values underpin everything we do, from strategic decisions to everyday systems and processes.
Our values are important to us and are integrated into the management process that is used to assess the team’s performance throughout the year.
