What are the core values of all IMI businesses?
To achieve its goals, IMI has a guiding set of values that exemplify how employees behave. Wherever anyone works in IMI and whenever an IMI employee is encountered, you can expect to see these values at work. The values that make up the IMI Way are:
- IMI people pursue excellence and deliver results
- IMI people innovate and provide value to our customers
- IMI people act with integrity
Code of Responsible Business/The IMI Way
The most consistent factor in IMI’s longstanding business success has been our commitment to a guiding set of values that exemplify how employees behave. Building on the work of previous years, during 2008 significant work was carried out to develop a new IMI Code of Responsible Business entitled “The IMI Way”.
In 2009, IMI formalized these values into a code of responsible business entitled “The IMI Way”. We believe that it is vital for our future business performance that we continue, as a Group to engage in the values and behaviors that set IMI apart. This code is a guide to help all employees consistently demonstrate their commitment to The IMI Way throughout our worldwide operations.
It has been translated into over 25 languages and is available to download on the IMI plc website at: www.imiplc.com/responsibility/codeofbusiness.asp
