Setting up Company Values.
What are values?
Company values are the core values or standards that guide the way that a company does business. These help sum up what your business stands for, influences the organizational culture, and also drives how and why you as an individual do things within your company. As part of the formal review process, we allow employees to measure themselves against these values to see if they feel they are adhering to them.
Creating Company Values.
To create new values for your company you first need to head to the admin page of Immese Works (the little cog in the top right of the page). Once here click on Company Values which is located under the General heading.
This then brings you to the Values page, it's here where you can view all values that are set up for the company. To add new ones simply click on the Actions button in the top right and then click Add New Value.
This then brings up a new page that allows you to create new value. Simply fill in the value title and description and click save and you are done. Here are some examples of values that companies already use:
Performance: Sport is the foundation for all we do and executional excellence is a core value of our Group. - Adidas
Togetherness: Togetherness is at the heart of the IKEA culture. We are strong when we trust each other, pull in the same direction and have fun together. - IKEA
Focus on the user and all else will follow: Since the beginning, we've focused on providing the best user experience possible. Whether we’re designing a new Internet browser or a new tweak to the look of the home page, we take great care to ensure that they will ultimately serve you, rather than our own internal goal or bottom line. Our homepage interface is clear and simple, and pages load instantly. Placement in Search results is never sold to anyone, and advertising is not only clearly marked as such – it offers relevant content and is not distracting. When we build new tools and applications, we believe that they should work so well you don’t have to consider how they might have been designed differently. - Google
Cost-Conscious: Being cost-conscious is about keeping an eye on expenses and making smart, sustainable choices even in the small, everyday things.- H&M
Courage: You say what you think, when it’s in the best interest of Netflix, even if it is uncomfortable. You are willing to be critical of the status quo. You question actions inconsistent with our values. - Netflix
Champion The Mission: Prioritise work that advances the mission and positively impacts the community. Build with the long-term in mind. Actively participate in the community and culture. - Airbnb
As soon as you create a new value this will appear in all reviews company-wide. So keep in this in mind when creating values.
And there you have it you now know how to create company values.
