Mission, Vision and Values are produced at Global level at our company headquarters, which are then cascaded down to local level, with a version produced in the UK specifically for Brother UK staff to relate to. The global group produce a lot of collateral to communicate these too colleagues all over the world, with visuals, videos and training sessions and workshops. Locally they reinforce them by referring to them in monthly team talks, annual and quarterly colleague meetings and half year reviews. They have a colleague reward scheme (PRIDE) which allows managers and peers to nominate each other, and these nominations link back to the core principles to provide a library of examples of how these principles are being deployed.
