“Core Values are the DNA of our business – they’re a global gold standard that guides our thinking, determines our behaviour, and allows us to adapt to local needs.

Safety & Assurance is our number one core value. Our safety culture has enabled us to maintain consistently high standards at locations worldwide.
Take a look at some of our safety milestones.
Core values are at the heart of our business because they define who we are, how we work, what we believe in and what we stand for. Our core values set out how we act and how we expect to be treated as part of Wood Group and provide a sound basis to make decisions.

Relationships Our business depends on healthy relationships with customers, business partners, and suppliers. We build and nurture strong relationships that are mutually beneficial, making sure that we deeply understand the people we deal with, so that we can anticipate their needs and always aim to exceed their expectations. Everyone in our organisation contributes to the quality of the relationships we build and we actively seek feedback.
