Devaluation time

Whatever next ?  Former BBC HR Director, Lucy Adams, is no longer sure 'values' are worth all the bother. At least 'corporate value statements', which, she now thinks, are generally all the same, and can't really be imposed.

"I’ve always felt there was something inherently arrogant in a company ‘providing’ values to their employees. Almost as if the leaders feel they have the monopoly on principled behaviour but their employees need to be fed them and have them explained."

More of Lucy's revisionism here. Below, the BBC's current values.

Trust is the foundation of the BBC; we are independent, impartial and honest

Audiences are at the heart of everything we do

We take pride in delivering quality and value for money

Creativity is the lifeblood of our organisation

We respect each other and celebrate our diversity

We are one BBC; great things happen when we work together
