John Pipe’s Core Values

Company values are the fundamental beliefs that guide and describe an organisation. At John Pipe, we thought the best approach to decide these was to ask the company members itself. So, we put together a list of 25 values that described our company for our employees to vote from. Everyone picked their favourites and reduced the list down to 4 clear winners, which became our Core Values. We believe these describe our company and approach to business perfectly. Our Core Values are:

  • Teamwork
  • Passion
  • Customer Commitment
  • Quality
