Everything we do as a railway is about connecting people, and providing the pathways that improve their lives. But we want to be at the heart of the communities we serve in more ways than one.
As a business we have real power to make a huge impact in transforming lives and communities. We know many of our people and customers are incredibly passionate about their local area and how they can make them a better place to live and work.
We will focus on making a real difference in three important areas of society: Young people, Homelessness and Mental Health & Healthcare. We will do this by continuing to build close relationships with community groups and charity organisations, providing support and opportunities to address these issues.
Take a look at the many ways we do this at Great Northern, Gatwick Express, Southern & Thameslink:
Our four Leadership Behaviours are the drivers of high performance and set out clear expectations of how leadership is to be demonstrated across GTR by our colleagues and by those aspiring to be leaders.
The behaviours are:
We Inspire - We believe in trusting our people to do their best, building alliances with others and developing our people to be better than we are.
We Think - We believe in thinking broadly, strategically and analytically to effectively tackle the challenges and take advantage of new opportunities.
We Involve - We believe in building strong relationships with others and by working collaboratively to achieve success together.
We Deliver - We believe in getting this done with a 'can-do' attitude and creating an environment that always makes it easy for people to do the same, so that as we improve we also evolve.
These Leadership Behaviours will form the basis of all leadership development and leadership activity that we will do and offer to you as part of your personal and professional development, including:
- Recruiting new leaders to our business
- Performance management and recognition of our existing leaders
- Developing leadership capability, and;
- Identifying the next generation of leaders through succession management and talent activity
