In a free enterprise, the community is not just another stakeholder in business, but is in fact the very purpose of its existence. - Jamsetji Tata
Purpose and Values
The Tata name is one of the most respected and trusted names in India, and a strong reason for this are the values on which the foundation of the group was laid and that each and every company adhere to till date. The five core Tata values underpinning the way we do business are:
Integrity: We must conduct our business fairly, with honesty and transparency. Everything we do must stand the test of public scrutiny.
Understanding: We must be caring, show respect, compassion and humanity for our colleagues and customers around the world, and always work for the benefit of the communities we serve.
Excellence: We must constantly strive to achieve the highest possible standards in our day-to-day work and in the quality of the goods and services we provide.
Unity: We must work cohesively with our colleagues across the group and with our customers and partners around the world, building strong relationships based on tolerance, understanding and mutual cooperation.
Responsibility: We must continue to be responsible, sensitive to the countries, communities and environments in which we work, always ensuring that what comes from the people goes back to the people many times over.
