Espoused Organizational Values, Vision, And Corporate Social Responsibility: Does It Matter To Organizational Members?
Organizational values are beliefs held by organizational members regarding the means and ends that organizations 'Ought to' identify in the running of the enterprise. The most basic level of commonality that provides a common identity and shared sense of purpose is reflected in the company's vision. Research suggests that when employees share organizational values, they feel more loyal, committed, identifies more strongly with the organization, and are more likely to stay. Espoused values that are expressed on behalf of the organization or attributed to an organization by its senior managers in public statements may be distinct from practiced values.
