Bringing HR Best Practice to Business

Importance of Values in a Company

Company values are the heartbeat of the company.

Company values have been around in big corporates for many, many years. They have given companies a blueprint of who they want to invite into their space and how the company wants to be represented. Every value that businesses choose as their own are specific to their company, its people and beliefs.

Does this decision match up to our values?

Is a question that should be asked by every employee from top management to bottom line when making decisions that affect the company and its employees and clients.

What would you like your company to represent?

Values allow for employees and clients to get a gist of what the company stands for and how everyone should be treated. Clients can easily see if it’s a company they are willing to invest in or walk away from.

Why did you start the company?

As employees and clients, knowing the story behind why the company started will allow for the heart and the values of the founders to infiltrate through the company.

Fair Business Practices

Business values can help define a company’s personality and help it stand out from the rest. They can assist with people focus and engagement. Having company values at the forefront of employees minds holds them accountable for better decision making when faced with unfair practices.
