Our Purpose and Values


Our purpose at Dr Foster is using information to improve lives.


We have five core values:

  1. Show we care
  2. Work better together
  3. Trust each other to deliver
  4. Make the complex simple
  5. Find our courage

These are the values we stand for—the values by which we measure all of our actions. And our values demand action. Being a values-led organisation means we must have the:

  • Willingness to take responsibility
  • Determination to never think, ‘I have no choice’
  • Humility
  • Desire to learn
  • Courage to challenge ourselves and others when values are not met

We know that we will not achieve our strategy unless we get our values right. By putting those values into action, we will create a new kind of company — and create a brilliant connected future for everyone.
