Everything we do is related towards the achievement of ‘a safe and secure aviation system - so people are safe, and feel safe when they fly’.
We have three pathways that lead us towards delivering our vision and purpose:
Our building blocks support and enable this to happen. These include:
An environment where our staff feel respected, safe, included and empowered to perform their roles is critical to our success. The foundation for achieving this is our values, which guide how we work and the behaviours we expect from each other.
Our values are:
- Collaboration – Me mahi tahi
- Transparency – Me mahi pono
- Integrity – Me mahi tika
- Respect – Me manaaki
- Professionalism – Kia tū rangatira ai
The Authority values were created in December 2020, led by a group of staff and union representatives called the Te Kākano Taskforce. The five values represent the standards of behaviour we expect within our work and daily interactions. They were created involving a staff-wide survey and weeks of consultation to ensure they best represented our people, and support our role as a modern-day aviation safety and security regulator.
