Last year we started changing the way we work at the Port of Dover. To focus on our new direction, we created a new purpose, vision, and mission to map a confident way forward. Once we had established our direction, we worked together to define a set of corporate values.
In the summer of 2022, our employees helped us explore our behaviours around the business through a series of workshops. We grouped these behaviours into broad themes and then conducted additional workshops to fine-tune those themes. Finally, we shaped these into a set of values.
These values are about us as a group of people who work together every day and they really represent the outstanding people at the Port of Dover. This is who we are, and who we wish to be.
With the Continent visible from the shores of Dover, and a valley carved out by the River Dour, it should come as no surprise that there is evidence that the Port of Dover was in use even before the Roman conquest.
Port of Dover has stood as an integral point of connection between the British Isles and Europe for centuries, a chosen passage of kings and a bastion of fortitude and resilience during the World Wars. With this history, the Port has grown a vast assortment of historical moments and heritage sites and buildings to document its place in time.
