We work together in the TT Way

Do the right thing

We have developed and implemented a framework ‘The TT Way’ – our aspired culture that will help us achieve our plan – consistently. This framework describes TT at its best and is essentially about ensuring we have embedded the right behaviours whilst driving performance improvement.

Our Strategy

We launched our strategic programme in Spring 2015. The programme is underpinned by six strategic priorities, providing focus for investment and change. And we will measure our performance by the three outcomes. The new strategy is also a call to action for everyone in TT to work together as one TT and to harness the expertise of the whole Group to build a more successful and sustainable future. The roll-out of the strategy consisted of a series of Group-wide engagement and communication activities throughout 2015.
