Making a difference
When organisations and groups have strong values embedded in their culture they perform better and have higher levels of engagement and satisfaction.
These days many organisations and groups have a clear statement of values. But the reality for many of these is that great sounding values can get trampled on in everyday life. It happens. There is inevitably a gap that grows between how we could live those values and how we actually behave.
The UK Values Alliance, in collaboration with the Forward Institute, the RSA (the Royal Society of Arts) and PwC, devised a simple one-hour long process, the Values Challenge, which organisations can carry out themselves to begin to close that values gap and put their values into action.
The main theme for World Values Day on 18th October 2018 is putting values into action in the community, and so this year the Values Challenge concludes with participants deciding how to put one of their key values into action in the community.

Community Groups please click here for more information.
Schools please click here for more information. Schools can also participate in the Values Challenge, either by involving the school staff, or by involving the school students, or by involving both – the whole school.
Your organisation, group or school doesn’t have official values? For information on how you can identify its core values please download the Values Guide for Organisations , the Values Guide for Community Groups, or the Values Guide for Schools 2018.
For individuals who want to find out how to choose their most important values there is also a Values Guide for Individuals.
