Values matter in the workplace, because they determine the frame that we place on the interactions that we have with others. To put this into context, it is important to understand the psychology of values and the role that these values play in the way people interpret the world. We discuss this point in the context of negotiation and competition in the workplace. Negotiation affects not only the particular outcome being discussed but also the relationships among people that determine what counts as the successful outcome of a negotiation. We also explore the role of values in determining broader issues in the workplace like work-life balance, and the responsibility companies have to the society around them. Learn more.
