Alignment of values

People think that finding a job that aligns with your values is perhaps a luxury. Maybe but I think when you are no longer struggling with survival, and can afford some emergency money to tide over some time of unemployment, plus young, it is quite likely that alignment of personal values and that of the organisation is incredibly important.

Generations ago, work is just work and we are able to express our values through the things we volunteer for, the work we do in our community, at home, amongst friends. The problem today is that work is demanding more and more of us.

So we would definitely need to demand more from work – especially in terms of quality of treatment to employees as humans, as people who care about a cause and not just a corporate or a boss.
