Now that you have become familiar with what are values and what they can look like in practice, let us look at the relationship between organisational and personal values, a dynamic that impacts our behaviours in the workplace (Arieli et al., 2019; Eva, Prajogo, & Cooper, 2017; Peterson & Barreto, 2014).
