Our purpose and values
Our purpose and values are what make us unique in who we are and they drive the impact we want to have as a business in the world. At our core is the ambition to be a force of positive change in our industry and to push the boundaries of possibility.
As a business we will continue to evolve, innovate and adapt. Our purpose and values guide us to evolve quicker, and in a way that fulfils our responsibilities and duties to our people, our clients, the communities in which we work and the planet.
Our purpose is:
To push the boundaries of what’s possible, in service of humanity.
Underpinned by values of care, integrity and courage.
At Laing O'Rourke, we have always had a strong sense of purpose with underpinning values, stemming from our family ownership and a passion to deliver projects that improve the lives of the communities they serve.
Our origin story, told by our own people connects the threads of our past to the ambitions of our future and it shows that our purpose and values matter now more than ever. They provide our reference point to test our decision making and actions against, and they inspire us, as they always have done, to find better and new ways to deliver.
