The purpose of the Employee Advisory Group is to consider and examine existing and proposed lab-wide workplace and workforce initiatives, practices and concerns, and to subsequently make recommendations to senior management.
In fulfilling our purpose, the EAG is committed to shaping, supporting and sustaining an organizational culture that actively seeks out, respects and responds to a diversity of perspectives.
In order to shape and frame this culture, we have defined the set of values which are depicted in the graphic below.
What is a value? According to the Merriam-Webster dictionary it is something (as a principle or quality) intrinsically valuable or desirable. According to the Oxford English dictionary it is the principles or standards of a person or society, or the personal or societal judgment of what is valuable and important in life. To the EAG, values are simply the things which we expect to be demonstrated by all employees at all levels because they are inherently important.
