What we stand for and believe

Our working culture at Mears

Red Thread is our culture that binds all Mears' colleagues together. It's the way we do things around here and it's in our DNA!


Whether you're working in one of our Care teams, looking after vulnerable people, in Housing, making sure the homes of tenants are in a good state of repair, or in one of our support services, everyone has a part to play in our success.

Red Thread can help us achieve more as individuals, as a team, and as one Mears with many talents! Our Red Thread culture comes alive through a set of five behaviours.

Motivation - Motivating you to reach the top

We see no limits. Every colleague at Mears plays his or her part. We can reach our personal goals and aspirations.

Empowerment - Empowering you to fly higher

Great leaders aren't born, they grow!

Role Models - Lead by example

Colleagues, clients, customers and the communities we serve have high expectations of Mears. Our responsibilities around how we act, what we portray, along with doing what's right are important to us.

Standards - High standards we all work to reach

We set industry-wide standards. It's the reason why we're listed on the FTSE4Good index for social responsibility.

Customers - At the heart of what we do

Put simply... we're here to serve!
