What are company values?
Company values – also called core values, business values or brand values – are the principles, philosophies and beliefs that drive your business. They influence how colleagues experience the workplace, as well as your relationships with clients, customers and partners.
Why create a company values document?
As company values are such an important part of how an organization operates, it's imperative to have them written down and visible to colleagues. Many companies also make their core values public, as more and more people like to know what a company is like before they apply for a job on your team, buy your product, or do business with you.
When should a create a company values document?
Companies' values are likely to evolve as they grow, but it's a good idea to flesh out your most important core values quite early on in the life of the business. This is because your values will influence the type of people you hire, the partners your work with, and the customers and clients you attract.
What should your core company values document contain?
Typically, your core values document should contain a brief statement explaining what your company is, and what it does. It should then list out your values and provide a little background about each one.
