The TAC's mission is to work with the Victorian community to reduce road trauma and support those it affects.
We are inspired by our vision of a future where every journey is a safe one.
Strong values are particulary important to the TAC to achieve our mission and our vision, and so, with the help of our employees, we've developed five shared values. These values are central to our business culture, and guide us in the way we work with our clients, providers and each other. They are:
We will be open, honest and reliable in everything we do, achieving and maintaining the highest levels of professional service to our stakeholders and each other.
UNITY OF PURPOSE
We will work together to achieve our vision and mission.
We will share experiences, knowledge and ideas to foster greater communication, interaction and cohesiveness within the organisation.
DIGNITY AND RESPECT
We will treat all people, inside and outside the organisation, with dignity and respect
We recognise the role innovation can play in achieving the organisation's vision and mission.
We will foster a culture that encourages employees to maximise their potential.
ACCOUNTABILITY AND RESPONSIBILITY
We will support and encourage employees to be responsible and accountable, and to make decisions within the scope of their role.
WHY VALUES ARE IMPORTANT
Having, and acting on, strong values is the key to the TAC achieving its goal of being a world leading organisation. To be a world leader, it is not enough to concentrate solely on efficiency and sound financial management. An organisation must gain the respect and trust of its clients, stakeholders, service providers and the community. This can only happen if it is an organisation that upholds clear principles.
In the TAC's case, the organisation is its people and a great deal of its work calls for sensitivity, discretion, good judgement, cooperation and relationship-building. Our reputation, therefore, hinges on our actions, attitudes and values.
The need for both an individual and shared approach to values is reflected in the TAC's guiding principles. Having common values will lead to consistent behaviour and, ultimately, success
