The core values of an organisation are the foundation upon which employees base their workstyle and behaviour. Core values are the principles from which stakeholders are able to predict the company conduct and its employees’ behaviours. The values are principles on which the organisation is based. Core values are constant. They are the basic elements of how employees carry out their everyday work.
Core values govern personal relationships, guide business processes, articulate what we stand for, help explain why we do business the way we do, guide us in making decisions and underpin the whole organisation. They are essential tenets.
