Our values

A company’s culture is not something that is created overnight. It is the result of consistent values influencing its development over a sustained period. At McGregor Boyall we believe our Core Values form the foundation for shaping our company culture and the way we work – they are integrated into everything we do.



We take responsibility for what we say and do. We neither excuse ourselves nor blame others.



We expect everyone to work together to achieve shared goals while acting with openness and respect at all times. However, this does not mean suppressing individuality.



We believe in doing the right thing. We say what we mean and mean what we say.



We constantly strive to uphold the highest professional standards in everything we do.

Equality and Diversity

At McGregor Boyall we aim to create an environment that encourages and values diversity within our workforce and builds on the differences that individuals bring to our continued success. We aim to draw upon the widest possible range of views and experiences so that we can meet the changing needs of our staff and external stakeholders. We seek to promote diversity and to respond to the needs of all individuals in a fair and equitable manner while observing our commitment to current legislation. To help adhere to this, we provide training on Diversity and Inclusion, including Unconscious Bias for all employees on an annual basis.
