CSIRO's values are more than just words. They represent what is unique and special about CSIRO. Our values underpin not just the work we do, but how we do it, and how we interact with our colleagues and the diverse range of partners we collaborate with every day.
People first behaviours are: respectful, caring and inclusive.
Our first priority is the safety and wellbeing of our people. We believe in, and respect, the power of diverse perspectives. We seek out and learn from our differences. We do our very best to get all this right.
Trusted behaviours are: accountable, authentic and courageous.
We’re driven by purpose but remain objective. We fight misinformation with facts. We earn trust everywhere through everything we do. We trust each other and we hold each other accountable. Together our actions drive Australia’s trust in CSIRO.
Further together behaviours are: partnering, cooperative and humble.
We achieve more together than we ever could alone. We listen and collaborate, in teams, across disciplines, across boundaries. We embrace ambiguity and use discussion and persistence to generate unique solutions to complex problems.
Making it real
