Our Mission

We help the world communicate, innovate, learn and lead safe and healthy lives.

Our Values

At Calian, how we do business is just as important as the business we do. This is reflected in our values—the principles that guide the decisions we make every day.


We hold ourselves accountable for the actions we take. Our duty is to help the world move forward. We place our customer interests first and deliver on the promises we make. We empower our customers, partners and employees to succeed.


Effective collaboration delivers better solutions. We embrace our diversity and collective experience—and put it to work on behalf of our customers. We work effectively together, providing our customers with quicker problem solving and more innovative and effective solutions.


At Calian, solving complex problems is our passion. We engineer innovative, creative solutions to difficult, complex challenges that affect us all. We solve customer problems by bringing the right solutions, technology, people and partners together.

Customer Commitment

Business problems are ultimately human problems. Everything we do is measured against the confidence, progress and success of our customers, our partners and our employees. We are honest, work hard and are a pleasure to deal with.
