We believe that someone’s values are at least as important as their previous experience. Skills and knowledge can be taught, but a genuine caring and empathetic nature is inherent.
Our colleagues and clients have told us what values and behaviours are important to them, and we have distilled them into our PRIDE Values of:
Our PRIDE Values are ‘baked in’ to everything we do at GoodOaks. We use ‘Values Based Interviewing; asking for specific examples of times that they have displayed these values in their behaviours. For example, we might ask a candidate to describe a time that they supported someone who was upset or distressed, or what they did to help. Discussing that example with them, and understanding their motivations and understanding of the scenario helps us to understand whether that person shares our value of Empathy.
