Be more BLUE
Our values, developed in collaboration with our team, reflect the spirit of BLUE and drive us to be more…
The BLUE team’s breadth and depth of industry knowledge is second to none.
We engage with our clients on the basis of putting their business first. Using our commercial and industry knowledge and experience, we have the ability to connect the dots to provide them with opportunities that they might otherwise not seize. They trust us to proactively provide guidance and advice on both business and brand development; we challenge and inspire them to think differently, and they respect, value and act upon our opinion and counsel.
We use our unrivalled insight to work seamlessly with, and proactively for, our clients.
As a successful, pioneering and market-leading business, grounded in commercial and industry knowledge and experience, we pride ourselves on instinctively knowing how our clients think and what they want; naturally and seamlessly empathising and engaging with them professionally, and creating bonds and long-term partnerships that deliver loyalty and trust.
We value controlled urgency, where deadlines are respected without compromising on quality.
At BLUE, there is a tireless energy and hunger for success, and a total belief in the power and commercial importance of brand, reputation and communications, as well as the value that we bring to our clients’ businesses through our in-depth knowledge. We recognise the importance of instilling controlled urgency in how we work, based on an understanding of the fast-paced, changing dynamics of our clients, and the markets that they serve.
We take responsibility for, and pride in, the quality of our work. Confident in our ability and attention to detail.
Every employee takes personal responsibility and pride in the quality of work that they deliver and are equally accountable to both our clients and colleagues; we don’t just deliver what is expected of our specific roles, or rely on the ‘safety net’ of someone else in the account team to handle a piece of work, but always strive to be truly accountable on an individual basis. We have the courage and confidence to back our own abilities - individually and collectively - and are never afraid to challenge or be challenged in order to deliver for our clients and the business.
We have each other’s backs; we trust and respect our colleagues and together we get the job done.
We believe in creating a flexible working environment that is attuned to, and appreciative of modern lifestyle and circumstance. This is delivered by a culture of trust and respect that works both ways and at all levels throughout the business. It’s about what you can do for BLUE, as much as what BLUE can do for you. The strength of our team is defined by a solidarity for a shared purpose and common cause; we stand together, have each other’s backs, and roll up our sleeves to get the job done, regardless of position or seniority.
At BLUE, we mean business. That requires a commercial mindset at its core.
We know the many challenges and opportunities that our clients face in growing businesses while transitioning and evolving to a decarbonised and digital world. We know that the numbers matter and business can be tough. And we also know that true sustainability can only be achieved if purpose is equally matched with commerciality. So, we use our knowledge and networks to create strategies that drive revenue streams and enterprise value, while also delivering what’s needed for the planet. That’s good business.
