If someone asked you what principles does your company operate under, would you be able to answer easily? How about if they asked your employees or colleagues? Would they have the same response? If you are struggling to answer this question or if you and your colleagues’ answers just aren’t matching up, it’s probably time that your organization developed and implemented core values.
What Are Core Values & Why Do They Matter?
According to YourDictionary.com, core values are defined as “the fundamental beliefs of a person or organization” (https://examples.yourdictionary.com/examples-of-core-values.html). Companies typically create core values either when they are founded or as they start to grow to ensure there is some sort of guide for how the organization should be operating, what common goals they should be working toward, and what sets them apart from competitors.
