Protecting and strengthening the culture at Alimentation Couche-Tard is one of our highest priorities. Our culture is defined by all the team members who work here and how we interact with each other and our customers every day.
We are proud to share that we have come up with one way of seeing and understanding what our culture looks like in our daily lives, which is by creating and promoting the values we live by.
More than four decades ago, our company was founded in a single store in Laval, Canada with a certain set of guiding values, which have shaped us through the years. As we continue to become a bigger global company, we want to be able to verbalize and share those values in order to continue growing together. We believe the four values that we have defined perfectly capture our culture and our aspirations of who we want to be for decades into the future.
Here are the values we live by:
We work together to make it easier for our customers and colleagues. We stay humble and celebrate shared successes. We have fun and care for each other.
We treat the business as our own. We seek out problems, act quickly to solve them, and deliver better results. We take responsibility, and when we make mistakes, we learn from them.
Do The Right Thing
We act with honesty & integrity. We are inclusive; we treat each other, our customers, and our suppliers with respect. We strive towards a cleaner, safer, equitable workplace and planet.
Play To Win
We challenge ourselves to play offense, not defense, which means we need to be quick and innovative. We show up every day ready and committed to make an impact using our talents, passion, and hard work.
All our team members have been asked to engage with these values and share them with our customers and communities. It is important that they are more than just words: they are values that we live by and values that inform all our actions and business decisions as we strive to fulfill our mission of making our customers’ lives a little easier every day.
