Our values – a note on hyphenation
The Group’s values are:
- People focused
- Forward thinking
Hyphens should combine an adverb and an adjective to describe a noun. In this situation, the adverb describes the adjective, and the adjective describes the noun.
We are a people-focused organisation.
We are a forward-thinking organisation.
A hyphen is not needed if the adverb and adjective come after the noun being described.
We are people focused.

As an organisation, we are people focused.
