Values

Wikis > Values

Values are a broad range of beliefs or principles that are meaningful to a particular group or individual. They are subjective and based on inner personal experience and occur at cultural and organizational levels. They are fundamental beliefs that drive the decision-making process and are key when making a choice about careers. For example some people value job security, structure, and a regular schedule. Others value independence. Work values, such as helping society, influencing people, and working alone are essential to consider in career planning. When expressed in the work setting, work takes on purpose and meaning.
