Brookhaven National Laboratory Values & Behaviors

Message from Lab Director Doon Gibbs

We all live by a set of personal values and behaviors. Similarly, as an institution, itís important to work together from an agreed-upon set of values and behaviors to guide our actions and decision making.

our values

Our BNL Values & Behaviors are intentionally simple and straightforward; most of us live by them already. I believe itís important for us to have a public discussion and an understanding of these shared values and expectations. Our seven values are:

  • Leadership
  • Integrity
  • Responsibility
  • Innovation
  • Safety, Security, and Environmental Stewardship
  • Respect
  • Teamwork

Each value also has expected behaviors that are meant as a guide to illustrate the value.

These values and behaviors are crucial to building the Labís leadership capability among staff, the management team, and the Lab itself.

Iíve asked the ALDs and their leadership teams to lead by example through demonstrating our values and behaviors in their daily work. Iím also counting on every Lab employee to join me in embracing them.

In this intranet section for the Values & Behaviors, you can read the specific expected behavior examples for each of the seven values. There is also a downloadable Values & Behaviors (pdf) flyer that I encourage you to print and post.
