Our Culture and Values

The organisational vision 'a tropical, liveable city that creates opportunity and choice for our community' is supported by our CARES values: Customer Service, Accountability, Respect, Excellence and Solidarity.  These drive our culture by focussing on improvement, acting with integrity, being accountable and ensuring we communicate with clarity. 

Take the time to look at the following examples of our ‘CARES’ values in the workplace:

Our welcome to new staff

We have a comprehensive induction process to welcome new employees to Council, including a Corporate Induction.  This provides our new employees with a great insight into our City and the organisation.


Climate Change and Environment

Our Climate Change and Environment team works on initiatives to reduce the organisation’s and community’s environmental impact.  Some of these initiatives include Ride to Work day, Swap at the Top, community tree planting and events to celebrate World Environment Day.
