Ethics & Core Values

Engaging in ethical business practices is a commitment shared by TCL employees throughout our offices and project sites around the world. Our good reputation relies upon our employees taking personal responsibility for operating within the standards of ethical conduct in the countries in which we do business. Our success and sustainability depend upon work obtained and produced in an ethical and transparent manner.

Our focus on ethics and compliance starts with active leadership from our executives and is reinforced at every level.

Through agreeing to adhere to our policies, as well as periodic training and building awareness, TCL employees know that:

  • Safeguarding our professional behavior is more important than profiting from compromising TCL’s principles or bending the laws;
  • Our Company policy serves as the foundation for how we conduct business;
  • We are subject to the laws and regulations that apply in each of the countries where we conduct business.

Our ethics and compliance processes and procedures are designed to prevent, identify, and rectify any potential ethical concerns, and include training and communications, monitoring and auditing, enforcement and discipline, and response and prevention. Our processes are supported by a team of professionals, led by TCL’s Human Resource Manager.

Core Values

Three Simple Values guide us.

We are led by our simple yet essential core values


1. People Are Our Greatest Asset

As a professional services company, our talented employees are the key to developing and sustaining relationships: they invest time with our clients, understand their businesses, retain that accumulated client knowledge and pass it forward, and ultimately, our people deliver the work that adds value to our clients’ businesses. We are committed to providing our employees with an inclusive environment and meaningful work through which they can make lasting contributions as they develop and grow their careers with us.

2. We Are Relationship Based

This core value is our client-focused value. It describes our objective to create and maintain ongoing business relationships with our clients. We deliver superior and measurable value that exceeds what our clients can find elsewhere. We serve as their advocates and support them in their global aspirations. In simplest terms, our “relationship” value establishes an expectation of service, trust, and business partnership.

3. Growth Is An Imperative

We are a for-profit business. Our clients’ needs drive our business, so we grow in pace with their growth. Indeed, to compete in the global marketplace demands growth. And profitable growth is what all our stakeholder groups — client, employee, and shareholder — desire most from us.
