Core Values

The Public Works core values

Public Works has three workplace core values that we live and embrace every day:                                


Respect, Integrity and Responsiveness.


What are core values?                                                                                                                                                                      

Core values are a set of beliefs and commitments for how we treat each other. They explain who we are as an organization and reflect our collective, fundamental beliefs. Each of our core values are constant, essential and enduring as they embody the traits and qualities that represent Public Works' highest priorities.


What can core values do for us?                                                                                                                                                       Core values establish the quality of our work environment and shape the culture of our organization. They also direct how we conduct ourselves at work and guide our actions as public servants and co-workers. Serving as a code of conduct, our core values guide behaviors throughout all ranks of the organization and drive cultural change, help address unacceptable behavior in a non-threatening way and reinforce desired behaviors.
