Our Mindset

The power of who we are is greatest when we are bound together by a common Purpose, shared Values – and a single Mindset, which shapes how we get things done, always with our customers and clients at the heart of what we do.

The Barclays Way

This is the spirit of Barclays. It’s why we exist, what we believe and how we behave. But most importantly, it’s how we make decisions, take action and get things done.

Purpose

Our role in society is defined in our Purpose. It provides a clear expression of the kind of business we want to be, and what we care about, which in turn helps guide us in the decisions we make.

Our Purpose is:

We deploy finance responsibly to support people and businesses, acting with empathy and integrity, championing innovation and sustainability, for the common good and the long term.

Values

If our Purpose is why we exist, our five Values are our moral compass: they are the fundamentals of who we are, and what we believe is right.

Mindset

The power of who we are is greatest when we are bound together by a common Purpose, shared Values – and a single Mindset, which shapes how we get things done, always with our customers and clients at the heart of what we do.

Trust and support each other to deliver. Make decisions with those closest to the topic. Include diverse perspectives. Celebrate success and learn from failure.

Question whether things can be done better. Use insights based on data to inform decisions. Be curious about how we can adapt and improve. Speak up and be open to alternative viewpoints.

Focus on outcomes. Deliver with pace. Be passionate and ambitious about what we do. Take personal responsibility. Actively build collaborative relationships to get things done.

When you join Barclays, you become part of a culture where you can bring your true self to work and make a genuine contribution.
