Abstract

Organizations, whether for-profit, nonprofit or governmental, value – and sometimes devalue – social benefit. Values, defined as “that which people hold dear, esteem or cherish,” (Harvie & Milburn, 2010, p. 632), also organize. Organizational practices (actions and relationships) are (re)framed and (re)structured around values. The ethical frameworks that emerge around our values (De Angelis, 2007, pp. 24–28) (re)create social memories that structure how we interact with one another. For example, we habituate to treating one another with (or without) compassion, with (or without) respect or with (or without) dignity (Harvie & Milburn, 2010, p. 633).
