Our Values


At Ellis Locke & Associates, we practice what we preach. Accordingly, we welcome the opportunity to present the values that underlie our approach to our human resource consulting services. Our values include:

Working collaboratively: We work collaboratively with our clients and business partners, and amongst ourselves. In this way we establish relationships of trust and friendship that truly demonstrate a spirit of teamwork and cooperation, leading to the best consultation and solutions.

Respect: We honour the inherent value of every individual and organization with whom we interact. We treat people well and with respect, recognizing this as integral to who we are and what we do.

Integrity: We foster an environment of openness, consistency and accountability, believing our success as individuals and as a firm is rooted in our personal and organizational integrity. We will do the right thing.

Professionalism: We adhere to a set of professional standards and ethics; we do things right and strive for excellence in the service we provide and the manner in which we provide it. We are committed to the spirit of professionalism, conscious that we represent not only ourselves, but the interests of individuals and organizations who place their trust in us.

Balance: We understand that whole people are more engaged, productive and energetic both in work and in life, and we support balance in all we do. We are building a firm that provides an environment in which the “whole” person can thrive, that is appropriately responsive to the needs and interests of our clients, colleagues, and staff, and that promotes a spirit of community.

Passion for what we do: We are passionate about what we do and committed to providing the best service we can. We are proud of what we represent as an organization and of the work we do to help our clients succeed. We want to be the first and last call our clients make; we believe it is the combination of our expertise and values that distinguish us.
