IB employee profile

The International Baccalaureate® (IB) employee profile is our behavioural competency framework, which has been developed to drive and underpin the behaviours required by IB employees.

The IB employee profile brings together the behaviours that all IB employees should demonstrate within the workplace.

The IB employee profile seeks to reflect a balance between the values of the IB and the behaviours required by employees to successfully deliver the IB mission.

The employee profile is the IB mission in action in the workplace. It brings together the behaviours that all IB employees should demonstrate within the workplace.
