Our Goals & Values

At Homegrown our goal is,

“To provide you everything you need and nothing that you don’t”  

Honesty

For our clients - We only promote the products and services we believe our customers need and that we can deliver on time and on budget. We’ll tell you if we think there is a better or lower cost alternative, or if we don’t have the capabilities.

For our own Homegrown teams and the partners we work with – We want to look after you in the right way, so we’ll always strive to reward you with a good living wage and we’ll always provide you with the equipment you need.

Enthusiasm

For our clients - We are incredibly enthusiastic about providing our clients with the products and services they need, because that means we’re doing things right and we’re both creating successful and sustainable businesses.

For our Homegrown teams and the partners we work with – We love it when a job is done well and we believe that this is something everyone needs to hear, so we tell our teams when they’ve done something great and make sure they know they’re valued.

Innovation

For our clients - Sometimes what our clients need is expensive or a challenge, so we make sure we look at every option and are innovative in exploring new ideas to find the best solution. We innovate to give value in every element of our business.

For our Homegrown teams and the partners we work with – we want to make everyone’s lives easier, so we have flexible working, paid charity days and innovative new apps to reduce paperwork and make things quicker and simpler. We want our teams to be able to work smarter, not harder.

Safety

For Everyone – The heartwood of any tree is its strongest and most resilient part, at Homegrown safety is at the heart of everything we do and we are committed to ensuring it is also the strongest and most resilient part of our organisation. Everyone needs their employees going home safe to their friends and families, and so we make sure this is our top priority for everyone working with, or for Homegrown.

Environment

For Everyone – We are all passionate about the environment because we don’t just work in the outdoor environment, but also enjoy it, in our spare time, with our friends and families. We need to be able to continue to do this for years to come, so we are always looking for new initiatives to look after the places where we work and live. At Homegrown we care, and pride ourselves in developing a culture that actively looks for new and exciting ways to help the environment.

We strive to be the best by taking pride in everything we do.
