Employees interacting

Our Culture & Values

Whether we work with veterans and their families one-on-one or make a difference behind-the-scenes, a strong set of values unites us and shapes everything we do. As well as informing how we engage with the Defence family, Art Union supporters and each other, these values form the basis of our employee recognition program, guide our team-building activities and social events, and underpin our friendly, inclusive culture.
