Lyric Values

We are one Lyric Team. Each individual and department bring their own experiences, skills and individuality. Together we embody the Lyric Values that inform how we operate as one team to deliver our organisational mission.

We are an ambitious and fast-paced organisation, dynamic and committed to delivering the very best in everything we do. This dynamism is underpinned by shared beliefs, which are important to ensure the success of the Lyric.

We are committed to having a safe, communicative and open culture. Everyone at the Lyric has an important role to play in this, bringing the values we share to life in the way we work together day to day.

Our values:

  • Work with integrity and respect
    We support each other with kindness, openness and integrity. Together we celebrate our achievements and work collaboratively through our challenges.
  • Every day we learn and grow
    We must continue to ask questions, seek answers and share our learning with each other for the benefit of the Lyric.
  • Be ambitious and action-focused
    We believe in excellence; we have a can do attitude, go the extra mile and ensure our ideas become actions.
  • Serve our West London community
    We are here for the people of West London, every decision we make and action we take should benefit our community.

The success of the Lyric in meeting its objectives and sustaining its core values depends on the trust and confidence of all those with whom Lyric Representatives come into contact. This policy sets out the standards of conduct that the Lyric expects from Lyric Representatives.
