Staff Values & Behaviours
Our values of Focus, Passion and Inspiration are core in everything we do and how we do it. They are the foundation that our work is built on, and they are used to measure how well we do each day. On their own, they are just words; to become meaningful they need to be backed up by actions. That's why we aim for them to be at the heart of everything we do. When they are, we can - and will - deliver the best services for the communities of North Ayrshire.
Further information on our Staff Values is available on the Council’s website.
