  • Client Value Creation: Enabling our clients to become effective 21st Century leaders and creating long-term relationships by being responsive and relevant and by consistently delivering value.
  • Respect for the Individual: Valuing diversity and unique contributions, fostering a trusting, open and inclusive environment and treating each person in a manner that reflects SLI’s values. We believe that individuals who are treated with respect and given responsibility respond by giving their best. We treat others as we want to be treated and value a positive work/life balance.
  • Best People: Attracting, developing and retaining the best talent for our services, challenging our people, demonstrating a “can-do” attitude and fostering a collaborative and mutually supportive environment.
  • Integrity: Being ethically unyielding and honest and inspiring trust by saying what we mean, matching our behaviors to our words and taking responsibility for our actions. We thus value and demonstrate fairness, honesty, transparency and accountability.
