We have a clear mission
Let's start with what matters. We founded babylon with a single purpose. To put an accessible, affordable health service into the hands of every person on earth. Everything else flows from this; our values and the way we behave, the people we seek, the manner we recruit, what we expect, how we reward, and the way we work with each other to deliver this mission.
We have a quieter mission too
To show that we can do something exceptional without being inhuman. Many believe the end justifies the means. We think the ‘mean’ is just as important. So we are set to prove that work and life can balance, with a mission and an attitude that mirrors.
Dream big, act fast
We have a big dream: To put quality healthcare into the hands of everyone on earth. But we are not just idealists with big ideas. We take those ideas and are relentless in making them happen, as fast as we can. Scale and speed go hand in hand.
Why bother being just good when we can do great? We never lose sight of the bigger picture, but pay attention to the small things that make the difference. We aim to exceed expectations every time. There is little room for hubris and complacency in babylon. Excellence is a pursuit, a never ending chase.
We have a humane mission, because we are humans. Being human is being compassionate and caring for others. It is not ok to do something amazing, in an amazingly inhuman way. The way we treat all, matters as much as what we accomplish. To do something big, we need to bring many big talents together. Every person has a part to play, and it all matters.
Our values determine our behaviours. And our behaviours become our company.
Our behaviours are born from our values.
Because values are only words until you put them into action.
Above all else, we care. No drama. No politics. It’s that simple.
We collaborate. With insiders and outsiders. The intelligence of many always beats those of a few.
Curiosity does not kill, it creates. We are always questioning, never satisfied with the status quo. We are unrelenting in dreaming up new solutions.
We aim high. We accept nothing 'nearly right' or 'good enough'. We won't stop until we've done what we need to.
We say yes. It is always easier to say no, but no gets us nowhere. We have no room for personal negativity. None whatsoever.
We take responsibility. We're self starters and problem solvers. We don't pass it on, we own it.
