The value of having values
Posted on March 13, 2019 by Iosis
For any organisation, having a clear set of values that guides how the organisation behaves is important. For organisations like Iosis, it is perhaps even more so as we work each day to help transform the lives of families facing extremely challenging circumstances. Here, we share our values and what they mean to staff as they go about their day-to-day work.
Whakapono – Faith
We follow Christ as our model and leader.
“Our faith in Christ helps us to see beyond life’s challenges.”
Whanaungatanga – Connected
We seek to form the kind of relationships that connect us to whanau as whanau.
“Our relationships hinge on trust – our clients learn that we’re here to help them.”
Tunumafono Tracey-Leigh Peters
Pono – Honesty
We are honest with families, partners and ourselves.
“Honesty means so many things. For many of the people we help, it means being courageous in the sharing of their story.”
Manaaki – Respect
We seek equal and fair treatment for all: valuing the uniqueness of each person.
“We engage with each and every parent that walks through our doors with respect and without prejudice.”
