DTT’s shared values and ethical principles dictates that all interaction between DTT and its member firms and their employees, as well as interaction between employees, must be characterized by integrity, trust and mutual respect. DTT member firms regularly conduct anonymous people commitment surveys to lend a voice to employees through which to communicate with leadership. Results are collected and analyzed in each department, and problems are addressed in a constructive manner. In addition, as part of the implementation of DTT's Ethical Principles, member firms have put procedures in place to address employee grievances.

DTT’s shared values and ethical principles also include non-discrimination and inclusion as an integral part of the way the organization works. While DTT member firms are united by this vision of inclusion, DTT respectfully recognizes that implementation of related programs will be shaped by local and national cultures. Where appropriate, DTT member firms also address non-discrimination and inclusion in the community. DTT's Excellence Model helps to guide member firms so that professional performance and promotions are managed in a fair and transparent manner. Ongoing training and education also helps professionals develop the skills necessary to work cross-culturally.
