    which style to use

    Hi teachers,

    I am working as a compliance staff in a life insurance company in Vietnam. Sometimes, I have to translate some of our company's regulations into English. I confuse to use which style to write. For example:
    - Fully comply with all laws, regulations of AVI and the Company
    - To put customers' interests prior claim to personal interests
    - Possess excellent skills
    - Have high professionalism
    - Beingreliable and trusted by the customers
    - Respected by coleagues

    Can I wite:
    Putting cutomers' interests instead of "to put".

    Please help me.

    Thanks and regards,

    - Be reliable and trusted by the customers
    - Be respected by colleagues. This is a strange rule. Perhaps you mean, "Respect colleagues"

    Please help me.

    Thanks and regards,
    Even if you don't start a list with a phrase such as "All staff must:", the items in the list should all follow the same grammatical pattern.
