Values of an Organization 2 Values of an Organization Just like each organization has unique values, the employees of that organization have their own personal values. The individual’s responsibility is to align their personal values with the mission statement of the company, so that everyone is working together toward a common goal. As stated in chapter 7 of Understanding Business , a mission statement is typically a collaborative effort between employers and employees (Nickels, W. G., McHugh, J. M., & McHugh, S. M., 2008). Fred Johnson will compare and contrast his personal values with the founder of Kudler Fine Foods (KFF), Kathy Kudler, to see if he would perform well under her management. According to the Williams Institute Ethics Awareness Inventory (EAI) self- assessment, Johnson’s “ethical profile is most closely aligned with obligation” (University of Phoenix, 2008, p. 1). Obligation is one of the military’s core values that Johnson learned while working for the United States Army. The Army taught him to take his tasks and mission seriously, because soldiers’ and civilians’ lives depended on him. Johnson is thankful for the military instilling this value in him. His obligation is a personal value that will be instrumental in defining his ethical decisions in his future workplaces.
