HSBC #LiveYourValues Competition 2015

HSBC want to know what your values are and how you live by them every day!

The Details...

Personal values help define HSBC's belief systems, attitudes towards issues, people, work and their general behaviour. Most organisations around the world have also established their own set of values that they want their employees to live and work by. Large organisations such as HSBC, often look to recruit people who already share the same values.

HSBC employ over 330,000 people across the world and in order to create a consistent culture, help define the way employees think about business and how people work, they have developed three core values:

Dependable and do the right thing

Open to different ideas and cultures

Connected to customers, communities, regulators and each other

HSBC would love to know about a time when you have displayed the above values in your everyday life. Maybe you are friends with people from different cultures, maybe you are someone people can always rely on or you are passionate about your local community.

You can present your answer in the form of a story, poem, video, a captioned photograph, advert, be as creative as you want!
