Towards the end of 2020 - certainly a year in which a focus on safety had been paramount, albeit in a slightly different context - the decision was taken to formalise these important beliefs into a concrete set of company values. Alister Noble, HSE's General Manager, undertook the responsibility to express the fundamental beliefs HSE hold as a formal vision, mission and values statement.
The process began in August 2020. Alister conducted a series of interviews with various team members across the four main departments. The aim of the interviews was to help paint a picture of what team members valued about HSE and what words they used to express what the company stood for.
"The answers to the questions I asked were enlightening and encouraging," Alister said at the conclusion of the interviews.
Sifting through the results, it became apparent that "people" was the most common word associated with HSE. There were other words and phrases that appeared regularly in the responses. All the response were aggregated and compiled by the senior management team which synthesised them into the formal vision, mission and values statements.
After many lengthy discussions, drafts, revisions, edits and rethinks, the management team had what they were looking for: a perfect encapsulation of what HSE believes and stands for.
"The vision is why we do it, the mission is how we do it and the values are what we stand for," Alister said.
To make the statements a permanent touchpoint for the HSE team, posters have been designed and are being rolled out across the three offices in Sydney, Dubbo and Melbourne.
