Honesty and Integrity

This goes much further than adherence to professional standards: it is about openness and prudent judgement. It is about being trustworthy and straightforward in all of our working relationships.

This means...

We do...

  • Give advice we believe in
  • Behave ethically and stay true to our standards
  • Avoid conflicts of interest
  • Behave honestly with regard to our fees and how we charge our time
  • Agree clear expectations
  • Adopt a truthful and straightforward approach, even if the message is difficult
  • Speak up if we think something is wrong, without fear of recrimination
  • Respect confidences
  • Consult and communicate in an open manner
  • Seek out, and give, honest and constructive feedback
  • Appraise people objectively and treat them fairly
