Principles

People are our greatest asset

We respect each staff member

People are our organisation's greatest asset, and each staff member is treated with respect, fairness and consistency. Our staff works together as supportive partners, in a spirit of understanding and trust. Teamwork is encouraged to bring new ideas and plans to life.

We support individual growth and development

SOS Children's Villages supports the continual development of its co-workers, helping them to improve their skills and professional capabilities. A culture that promotes learning and creativity is nurtured. Individual training needs are assessed, and performance is evaluated, encouraging the long-term growth of each employee. Long service is encouraged, to build experience, continuity and a stable environment in which children can grow.
