The City of Perth is undergoing major organisational change with a renewed focus on serving, leading, and growing through teamwork, a commitment to excellence, and pride in our work. 

We are one team, working together towards our shared vision, which is outlined in our Strategic Community Plan: Vision 2029.

Together, we:

  • Trust and respect

  • Strive for excellence

  • Be creative

These values can also be explained by simple descriptions:-

Trust and respect

  • Be honest
  • Keep your promises
  • Respect others
  • Be fair
  • Support each other
  • Appreciate each others’ contributions
  • Recognise that we are all different
  • Share information and communicate openly

Strive for excellence

  • Do your best
  • Be enthusiastic
  • Be outcome-focussed
  • Take ownership (be accountable and responsible)
  • Take pride

Be creative

  • Look for new ways
  • Think laterally
  • Seek opportunities
  • Be flexible and adaptable
  • Be receptive to ideas and feedback

These are a simple yet compelling set of corporate values that can be easily understood, be readily described, and be of equal importance to all members of the organisation.
