“The question is not whether we have values but which ones really guide our behaviour. What guides us when it comes to deciding between acceptable and unacceptable business practices? By being principled about our day-to-day decisions, God builds our character and it becomes easier to behave rightly when the bigger challenges come along.
The same applies to organisational values. There are few companies today that do not have a list of values and a vision statement. But they are of little benefit unless they affect everything that people in the organisation do every day of the week. In many companies the values have minimal effect on how people behave – which can generate cynicism and lack of trust.
Christians have a great opportunity to use the organisational values to engage conversation with our colleagues at all levels about what they mean and how they might affect behaviour if really put into practice. This is not easy.”
