Fairness & Respect

Working in line with our values

Wolseley became a standalone business at the start of 2021, and that gave us the perfect opportunity to define what kind of company we want to be moving forward.

Our five core values - Safety, Health & Wellbeing, Exceptional Service, Nurturing Potential, Fairness & Respect and Positive Impact - were developed through our Colleague Forum. They're by our people, for our people. They reinforce our collective identity and give us all something tangible to live and breathe by each and every day.
