NEXTDC's Values

Our company values define the behaviour and skills that we expect from all employees. Every one of our team members 'live' the values every single day, striving to ensure all of our actions align with the behaviours which our values embody.

Our goal as a company is to have every one of our people living every one of our values, every single day.

We encourage our employees to share the stories where others live our values and we empower staff to call it out when they see behaviours that are inconsistent with our values.

If in doubt, we refer to our values to make the right decision.

It means that we will recognise, reward, hire and promote based on our 6 values: Straight Talk, Customer First, Frugal not Cheap, The Pursuit of Excellence, Bright Ideas and One Team.

Every one of us is responsible for ensuring we live the values and holding our team mates accountable. Our values mean we know what is expected of us every day, collectively we know what we stand for and what we are striving to achieve.
