Living our values
We put great emphasis on our values. They define who we are as an organisation and what makes us distinctive, guiding us in our day-to-day operations and in our relationships with our customers, communities and with each other.
It is not just what we do, but how we do it that’s important – across all our businesses and locations. We want to ensure that our employees feel empowered to do the right thing and to act with integrity. We want them to stand firm for what is right, to show respect for other people and to treat them fairly.

Building long-term sustainability
HSBC is committed to sustainability. We have a long-term focus and address the direct and indirect social and environmental impact of our decisions.
We make a significant investment in community initiatives, such as education, but also in the environment, and encourage our people to take part in volunteering activities around the world. It’s an opportunity for them to give something back to their communities, but also develop important skills that they can transfer to the workplace.

In an organisation as global as HSBC, being open to different ideas, perspectives and cultures is vital. Our success depends on collaboration and connecting with customers, communities and each other. This is why we embrace diversity at every level.
We ensure our environment is as open, supportive and inclusive as possible. We actively seek to attract and develop local talent in the communities where we operate and support employee resource networks to foster inclusion. We also continually work hard to enable, provide and support our employees to leverage flexible and alternative ways of working where possible.
