Tools for VBR


The tools in this area have been developed to assist you in implementing values based recruitment (VBR) for your organisation and embedding values across your employment practices.

Readiness checklist

The readiness checklist is a self-assessment tool that allows organisations to assess their current progress in relation to VBR and values based employment, and identify areas for further work and improvement. Download the readiness checklist.

Values mapping tool

The values mapping tool can help you to map your local values to those of the NHS Constitution. The tool has a range of uses and links with the behaviour framework. Download the values mapping tool to map your local values.

Behaviour framework

The behaviour framework links the values of the NHS Constitution to behaviours which would or would not be expected of staff. This can be used in conjunction with the values mapping tool to link behaviours to local values and has a range of uses in both recruitment and employment. Download the behaviour framework.

HEE National VBR Framework

Health Education England's (HEE) National VBR Framework has been designed to help employers and higher education institutes assess the values of candidates. It also provides case studies, tools and resources. Find out more about the HEE National VBR framework.
