People are our greatest asset
We are dedicated to the professional care of children
Our staff feel they are part of the organisation, identify with its values, and share a commitment to children. A professional approach to child care, balanced by compassion and understanding, is promoted. A culture is created which values staff members as equal partners, recognises their contributions, and supports their professional development.
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.
We are committed to a culture of responsibility
Through strong leadership, effective delegation, and involvement in planning and decision-making, our staff are motivated to take full responsibility for their work, within a clearly defined frame of standards and responsibilities. Initiative and confidence are built, allowing co-workers to act decisively in addressing their daily challenges.
