How We Decided The Ison Harrison Values

Watch our video below to see our collaborative approach to defining our 8 key values:

Ison Harrison Values Award

One of the things to come out strongly from the work we did to define our values was that these values should define our behaviours and the way we work both with customers and colleagues. We therefore launched the Ison Harrison Values Award to recognise members of staff that consistently deliver against our values time and time again.

Each week we announce another winner of the award. In the spirit of being an EOB, nominations for the Values Award come from our staff and we ask the previous winner to nominate who they would like to receive the next Ison Harrison Values Award.
