House of Commons Values
We serve the House of Commons, its Committees and Members, and the public, with honesty, probity and political impartiality.
We strive for excellence, effectiveness, efficiency and accuracy, remaining always open-minded on the prospects for better ways of delivering our services. We seek to be responsive to changing requirements, and to be outward looking.
We value a co-operative approach, based on mutual support, trust and respect.
We are committed to maximising personal development, to valuing diversity and the contribution of all individuals, and to equality of opportunity.
We seek to ensure that the House of Commons is a good place to work, recognising the importance of maintenance of work-life balance, and seeking to get the most out of the jobs we do.
The House is committed to providing a diverse and inclusive work environment and where everyone is treated with respect and dignity. The House of Commons Service recognises and values the diversity of its staff and is committed to developing working practices which will allow every member of staff to contribute his or her best, regardless of characteristics including race, sex, marital status, religion or belief, age, disability, sexual orientation and gender reassignment.
