How much do values matter for your organisation?

What values do you profess and how well do you think they are demonstrated throughout your organisation?

How can your organisation articulate and enhance its commitment to values?

Drawing on his research with Glowinkowski International Ltd. funded by Innovate UK, Professor Landman presents on the importance of values in large organisations. This work helped craft a model and measurement tool on values and how they are part of the overall configuration of organisational structures, behaviours, and processes, which relate to the climate of an organisation and ultimately its performance.

The values measurement tool (Global Values Indicator or GVI) is derived from virtue ethics, political philosophy, and values statements from FTSE 100 companies. The model measures the importance that individuals place on this set of values and the degree to which they experience how these values are demonstrated in the workplace.

The webinar session includes a formal presentation of the model, examples from data collected on large organisations, and interactive elements to stimulate deep thinking about why values matter for leadership in the 21st Century.
