This calls for a blend of sharp minds and compassionate hearts to create the best systems and outcomes. If we get that balance right, we'll be doing the best possible job for our customers and ourselves.

    We call this our Hearts and Smarts which we live and breath every day.

    The better we know our customers, the more we can help.

    The whole picture. You seek to understand the full, unique circumstances of each customer.

    Pick up where they left off. For every customer interaction, you take the time to review their history and respond to their current needs. 

    Unbiased partnering. You're holding the customers' hands and walking them through this point in their journey.

    Never give up. You're tenacious in finding solutions that could help our customers.

    Supportive. You're never too busy to stop and think about the way you can help someone else.

    You deal with the realities of life. You empathise and show compassion towards your colleagues. 

    Two heads are better than one. You believe in reaching out to others for help and advice. 

    Giving thanks. You're quick to appreciate others.

    We adapt to deliver the best value for our customers.

    Nothing is impossible. You're always motivated to try better ways for our customers.

    Always be alert. You know when the impact of the change can be greater than the individual.

    Change feels good. You feel that change is a positive measure of progress.

    Endless boundaries. Our policy provides you with a starting point for delivering better value for our customers. 

    Together we are responsible for protecting our customers and Keystart.


    Conscious decision-making. Your deliberate decisions safeguard our customers.

    Stand up to make things better. You back your instincts to support someone in a moment of need.
