Values at Work: The invisible threads between people, perfomance and profit

Overview

How many companies create a fancy vision statement, hang it on the wall and never refer to it again? For all the hype, identifying company values is worthwhile only if management then refer to these values in all business decisions and motivate employees to do the same. Values at Work seeks to help managers identify company values, coach staff to implement these values, and support staff in identifying their own personal values and comparing them to those of the company.
