At the heart of everything we do are three core values: bravery, decency and imagination. These define the culture of our organization and underpin the way we do business.
Bravery has always distinguished our publishing businesses. Penguin was the proud publisher of Lady Chatterley's Lover and The Satanic Verses, Pearson Education stands up for its authors every year in the face of special interest groups who seek to influence the content of school books, and the FT's formidable reputation is built on the impartiality, accuracy and integrity of its reporting.
We are committed to supplying the highest possible quality of product and service to our customers, which means delivering measurable impact in our educational services as well as finding the most environmentally-friendly way of making our books, newspapers and magazines.
Our core values strongly influence the way we see our company's place in the world - we believe it to be our duty to use our resources to help further education and literacy, and to support our people wherever we can in their own charitable endeavors. Our charitable arm, the Pearson Foundation, partners with other innovative organizations to promote literacy, learning and great teaching on an international scale, and we run a number of volunteer programs to help staff donate some of their working day to local programs.
