Our values describe who we are and how we work at Talisman. They state what we believe in and what we stand for. They reflect our corporate culture and organizational behaviour. As a whole our values demonstrate how we act and expect to be treated as a member of the Talisman team.
Our goal is to create working conditions where we cause no harm to people.
Safe operations is our number one priority. If operational results and safety come into conflict, employees have a responsibility to choose safety. Talisman is committed to supporting this choice and providing the resources necessary to achieve safe working conditions.
We inspire others by the passion we demonstrate for our work. When we feel passionate about what we do and the company we work for, we are more productive and more successful. We are happiest and excel when we do those things we are passionate about. Enthusiasm is inspirational!
We have a bias for results and take initiative to get things done efficiently, creating value for our shareholders. Effective results require a vision of what needs to be done, setting priorities and implementing realistic action plans. We are purpose driven and hold ourselves accountable for high quality, timely results.
We take time to consider and appreciate other people's points of view, and treat the environment with respect. We value the diversity of our workforce and stakeholders and appreciate each other's unique strengths. Respect is about treating people with dignity, listening and displaying courtesy. In planning and executing our activities we take the environment into account, treating it with respect and striving to minimize the impact of our operations.
We strive for excellence in what we do and how we do it. Excellence is about working hard, being innovative and working smart; demonstrating a high degree of technical, professional and problem solving skills. Continuous performance improvement is required to maintain excellence.
By working effectively together we can deliver results far beyond our individual capabilities. By working together, we can achieve superior results for the organization. Clear and common goals support teamwork. Effective teamwork is anchored in trust and being able to offer, ask for and accept help, advice and feedback.
We show courage to speak honestly and support others to do the same.
We communicate honestly and truthfully and we provide full disclosure to stakeholders. Information and ideas flow unfiltered, up, down and across the organization. We speak the truth, even when the message is difficult and the conversation may be uncomfortable.
