Responsible business growth
As a business, growing in an ethical, responsible, and sustainable way, involves implementing numerous supportive business practices to promote our long-term profitability. At our core we believe a company cannot have a positive impact on the environment or community, if it's not profitable.
Integrating sustainability into our core business activities
Our Sustainability Framework identifies clear opportunities to have a positive impact on the world.
We recognise that Sustainability needs to be closely integrated with our core business strategy to enable collaboration with business functions and connection to our customers. We are committed to developing a centre of excellence that helps guide, facilitate and coach the delivery of strategic initiatives, outcomes and actions and communicate our story.
Innovating for a strong and sustainable future
At Gallagher we believe that investment in R&D and a concerted innovation pathway are an essential component of who we are and why we are successful. Each year Gallagher re-invests at least 15 percent of our revenue back into research and development, ensuring it remains a core part of our commitment to ‘protect what matters most’.
Our ‘secure by design’ approach means we have a dedicated Research & Development team whose focus is on cyber-security, improving product development, and monitoring for vulnerabilities.
This ensures that Gallagher’s customers, critical infrastructure or not, have peace of mind knowing that their security solution is designed and tested by a responsible, government-approved manufacturer.
Positively impacting our economy
At Gallagher we are committed to;
Deliver to the highest of procurement expectations – establishing supply chain transparency to ensure that we are promoting and supporting human rights, fair labour practices, environmental progress, and anticorruption policies.
Meet consumer demand while delivering equitable wealth creation – differentiating our business from the competition, aligning our expectations to create enduring partnerships, providing better value in cost, increasing customer loyalty, and turning market share into equitable wealth creation.
Stimulate innovation – Social and environmental issues continue to present new business opportunities for Gallagher to develop customer centric solutions to the challenges they face, with a focus on technology and innovation to create new markets.
Promote business continuity – We aim to protect the business today, while ensuring that we respond to the challenges and opportunities of tomorrow and appreciate the support of shareholders who take a long-term view.

Being a world class employer
Gallagher has honed a reputation as a family owned and operated business that has grown from humble beginnings over 85 years ago into a global player - who in 2022, now employs close to 1,400 staff.
Throughout all of this growth, Gallagher has remained 100% true to our foundational values of putting people, family and culture at the heart of what we do – all while continuing to deliver innovation, exponential growth and outstanding commercial outcomes.
Underpinning this in recent years has been the business-wide uptake of key programs including Team Alchemy and Better ways of Working (BWOW).
Team Alchemy Analysis providing critical feedback and learnings across six key areas that help our teams to grow, develop and perform at the highest level including:
- Team outcomes and performance ethics
- Accountability and high standards
- Direction and clarity and alignment
- Dialogue and sound processes
- Trust and respect
- Collaboration and engagement with key stakeholders
The introduction of BWOW in 2021 has involved the setting up of key frameworks and structures for us to form adaptive and collaborative, customer centric teams that can deliver brilliant customer outcomes while giving employees better days at work. It covers both the behaviors and mindsets, as well as the practices the Gallagher team adopt.
We know from our ‘My Employee Experience Surveys’ that our people already think Gallagher is an awesome place to work but we believe that there is always more that can and should be done. Both Team Alchemy and BWOW programs reflect this intent.
