Corporate Values

Our values or core principles are very important to us.  These are the qualities we believe in and value positively and that help us define how we go about achieving our mission.

Our values are:-

Serving our Customers
We do everything in our power to ensure that we provide our customers with the products, services and solutions to suit their needs provided that everything we do for them is based on sound business principles.

Growing our people
We encourage and help our people to develop to their full potential, and measure our leaders on how well they grow and challenge the people they lead.

Delivering to our shareholders
We understand that we earn the right to exist by providing appropriate long-term returns to our shareholders.  We try extremely hard to meet our various targets and deliver on our commitments.

Being Proactive
We strive to stay ahead by anticipating rather than reacting, but our actions are always carefully considered.

Working in teams
We and all aspects of our work are interdependent.  We appreciate that, as teams, we can achieve much greater things than as individuals. We value teams within and across business units, divisions and countries.

Guarding against arrogance
We have confidence in our ability to achieve ambitious goals and we celebrate success, but we must never allow ourselves to become arrogant.

Respecting each other
We have the highest regard for the dignity of all people. We respect each other and what Standard Bank stands for. We recognize that there are corresponding obligations associated with our individual rights.

Upholding the highest levels of integrity
Our entire business modelis based on trust and integrity as perceived by our stakeholders, especially our customers.
