Our values provide the framework for how we engage with our colleagues, customers and stakeholders. These behaviours and values must be demonstrated in the role and across the business.

  • Unequivocal:

We have chosen unequivocal because it's clear and unambiguous; it leaves no room for doubt. It can't be argued with. It gives us certainty when dealing with colleagues and clients, as everything we deal with is based on fact.

  • Authentic:

Data is genuine, clean and accurate - or it's not. Our approach is scientific. Based on truth, not fiction. We are giving clients trust in what we do.

  • Relentless:

The world is forever changing, and change is relentless. We have to be relentless pioneers, interpreting change, finding meaning, ensuring that our clients stay ahead of the curve.

  • Human:

People are the most important. Innovation comes from people, and our people are a constant and integral part of the data journey. Augmented intelligence supplements human intelligence. It never replaces it.

Here at IDS, we believe in facts, not fiction. Things are true or false because we thrive on delivering certainty.
