Levelling the playing field for long-term success


We have successfully embedded our behaviours throughout our employee lifecycle. For job applicants, values and behaviours are outlined clearly in job specifications and form part of the interview process. This alignment continues through to the onboarding process as part of a new employee’s induction. For existing employees, values are referenced throughout internal communications to ensure deeper understanding and adoption. And, importantly, alignment to behaviours now forms part of an employee’s annual performance review process.

This has paved the way for a new performance measurement framework, ensuring that employees who embody ‘The Clarksons Way’ develop and are promoted accordingly. It has helped to level the playing field in terms of recognising emerging talent which, in turn, will help to ensure a diverse leadership and team profile.

Known internally as ‘The Clarksons Way’, our behaviours underpin the culture of the business and are now tied in to how we evaluate employee performance, development and promotion across the organisation.

Going forward, the business will have a strong focus on early careers. The framework established in 2022 is being embedded and ensures that our next generation of talent will benefit from enhanced career progression opportunities whilst celebrating individualism. We strive to ensure that the pathways to success at Clarksons are communicated with transparency.

For the Group, establishing this common approach across every office location ensures a more cohesive working environment and experience both for employees and external stakeholders. The culture of the business, the behaviours we are embedding and the values that we commit to all underpin and help us to achieve our purpose of leading positive change.
