Integrity & Ethics

Everything we do at PolyTeQ is underpinned by CCL Secure’s core values and an unwavering commitment to integrity and ethics.


We encourage a workforce driven by unity, accountability and integrity, by valuing:

  • Honour — Above all else, do the right thing
  • Own — Take responsibility, act as if it's your business
  • Grow — Grow with the business
  • Engage — Achieve better outcomes by engaging with others
  • Excel — Set high standards, exceed customer expectations

These values are embraced by all staff and form part of the evaluation of workplace performance.

We strive to foster a culture that values and encourages exemplary ethical standards, a commitment to compliance with the law, personal and corporate integrity, transparency and respect for others.
