Values (PVP)

The Work Values Assessment investigates the values of the individual and the business. Personal Values drive the accepted norms of a person and indicate the passions that motivate people. They are the internal driving force that engages people to actively contribute and participate in their work each day.

What Are Personal Values?

Values can be defined as the deep-seated needs that serve as standards for judging one’s own behaviour as well as the behaviour of others.  They form the basis for how people assign worth to situations and objects.  Values shape our value systems, and have a cognitive as well as an affective component.  They play a major role in understanding personal motivation.

Values In The Workplace

Values that are fully integrated in the culture of an organisation can provide powerful insights into employee motivation. This insight becomes the compass that the organisation uses to select staff members, reward and recognise employee performance, and guide interaction among employees.

Profiling The Individual

The Personal Values Profile (PVP) is an assessment that assesses an individual’s values specific to the work context and match it according to a series of 21 pre-defined core values in the workplace or job. The analysis ranks values from most to least importance to the individual, providing leadership insight on the GAP with the alignment of the core values of the organisation.

Profiling The Company

The Corporate Values Profile (CVP)  is a companion to the Personal Values Profile. It looks at a specific core values list from the job or organisation’s perspective. Utilising the same work values as the PVP, it ranks them from most to least important in relation to the requirements and expectations of the function, job, team or business domain.
