What we believe

Our reputation gives our customers, employees, partners, suppliers, investors and the many communities that we serve the confidence to trust us and do business with us.

Our four Group-wide values of Integrity, Teamwork, Excellence and Respect are essential in helping to guide our employees and the way that they behave.

Balfour Beatty's Code of Conduct is rooted in these four Group values. It provides all our employees with a clear framework within which to make the right decisions and explains the behaviour we expect from all our employees across the Group.

We operate in increasingly diverse markets so a common set of values offers clear business benefits and will help support the challenges of future growth.

  • We are fair and open with everybody
