OUR VISION, MISSION AND VALUES
Lifelong music-making for everyone.
To be the best global provider of tools and resources
for learning, teaching, creating and making music.
… are integral to all we do. They guide the way we work and communicate.
We frequently reflect upon our values and continually seek ways to maintain and improve them:
WE START WITH MUSIC
Music is why we exist as a company.
Music has the power to enrich people’s lives and improve society.
The composers, writers and brands that we represent are at the heart of our business. Because of them and what we do, people learn, create and make music.
WE ARE ONE TEAM
We work together to create a diverse, inclusive and sociable workplace where everyone feels equally valued and respected.
WE CARE FOR OUR COMMUNITY
Our customers are our priority. We are passionate about creating a sustainable future for our music-making communities and the environment.
WE CELEBRATE SUCCESS
We set high standards of professional excellence. We are driven by results and strive to continuously improve. We promote progression, recognising and rewarding employee loyalty and success.
Our Commitment to Equality, Diversity and Inclusion
At Hal Leonard Europe we’re passionate about our vision: lifelong music-making for everyone. We want as many people as possible to enjoy the benefits of learning, creating and making music, and we’re working hard to make that vision a reality.
We celebrate and encourage diversity in the music-making world and in our workplace. We welcome people to Hal Leonard Europe for who they are, irrespective of what they look like, where they come from or any other protected characteristic. Diverse contributions from a diverse range of viewpoints can make our business stronger. Accordingly, we promote a culture of equality, diversity and inclusion in our business.
However, we are always looking to progress in support of our values and we recognise that there is work to do to build upon what we have already achieved. To do this we have identified six key areas in which we are committed to action:
We are making Equality, Diversity and Inclusion (EDI) central to our Vision, Mission and Values, and a strategic priority within our business, with budgetary allocation to facilitate progress, and specific attention given by the Senior Management Team.
We are widening the influence on our strategic direction via the appointment of an advisory group, who will help us develop our plans and regularly review our progress.
We are developing internal representatives to champion and embed EDI values, and initiate education programs, to include anti-racist and unconscious bias training for all staff.
We are ensuring that our recruitment practices are inclusive and promote diversity, our employment practices nurture progression, and equal opportunities are created to support new entrants to our workforce.
We are reviewing our communications, marketing and learning materials to ensure accessibility and promote diversity.
We are reviewing our existing product catalogue and processes for creating new products to ensure that they reflect our values.
