One-team working

The IET’s success depends on volunteers and staff working together with shared values towards common goals.

The IET exists to deliver its charitable objectives and we are successful in doing this because of the approach we take. People’s behaviour is driven by their values, and it is the IET values of Integrity, Excellence and Teamwork which underpin the delivery of our activities.

A key strategic objective of the IET is about the value of Teamwork – One-Team Working – and this is achieved as we:

  • Encourage staff and volunteers to work together;
  • Recognise the value of talented individuals working in teams;
  • Are collaborative and partner with other organisations.

We can also observe Integrity and Excellence in the way we:

  • Operate professionally and ethically to gain trust;
  • Are open and honest with each other;
  • Respect everyone and value each other’s contribution;
  • Work towards the highest level of service and satisfaction;
  • Use agile methods and seek innovative solutions to add value;
  • Continually improve and adopt best practices.

Help us spread the word

When we have shared values, we work better together. If you’d like to get members and volunteers around you thinking about the IET values, you can use the slides available from the ‘See also’ box to add to presentations or to create a display. Let us know what people in your area think, and what the values mean to them.

Everyday Champions

Our volunteers are our everyday champions and we simply couldn’t achieve everything we would hope to without them.

To celebrate the great work that our volunteers do on behalf of the IET, we would like volunteers to send us videos (as individuals or as a group) talking about how great volunteering can be, together with examples, and why our core values – Integrity, Excellence and Teamwork – are important. Our volunteers take the time to make a difference and we want to share the variety of initiatives that our volunteers do around the world to inspire, inform and influence others.

You can find out more about this campaign on our Everyday Champions webpage.
