Our people, our values

We employ more than 2,000 people worldwide. We’ve been in  business 200 years. Every year we produce in the region of 7  billion unique banknotes and more than12 billion secure product  identifiers, stamps and labels.

Our people

We’re proud of what we do. Not merely because we produce so many products and offer so many services, but more because of what we enable governments, organisations and citizens to do - we enable countries to trade, companies to sell, economies to grow and people to move securely around an increasingly connected world.

None of this would be possible if it weren’t for our people. It is their commitment, energy and hard work that have helped us get to where we are today. It is through them and the employees yet to join us that we can look forward to a strong and prosperous future.

Our Values and what they mean for customers

These are the values that guide our business, our product development and our brand. As our company continues to evolve and grow, these five values remain constant.

Excel in what we do

We will be the best at what we do.

We strive to deliver results of which we can truly be proud. We understand the contribution we make, and always look to not only meet, but exceed expectations.

Act with integrity

We will be honest in everything we do.

We work and behave consistently in line with our values. We have the courage to be honest and do the right thing even in difficult situations. We honour our commitments, do what we say and will build trust and confidence with everyone around us.


Take responsibility

We will take ownership to deliver individually and as a team.

We deliver our promises, lead by example and understand that success is created both individually and collectively. We take personal accountability for everything we do and support others in doing the same.

Drive change and innovate

We will constantly seek out ways to improve and develop our business.

We recognise that our ambitious agenda requires us to continually drive and embrace change. We challenge ourselves and support others to try new things, learn from experiences and persevere in the pursuit of our goals. We continuously improve by exploring innovative ways of working with our colleagues, customers and suppliers and by developing ourselves and others through personal growth to increase our capability.

Work together

We are stronger as a team.

We always look at how our knowledge, experience and skills benefit those around us. We seek others' input and support them with their challenges. We work freely across the business to deliver common goals and understand the impact of our actions on others.
