Stated values vs. real values

I’ve often been aware of a discrepancy between employers’ stated values vs. their real internal values.

E.g. a workplace where certain cultural behaviours are metaphorically chiselled in stone by HR as “the” behaviours of the organisation, yet the reality is somewhat different (and it’s well known on the ground or those who recruit for those employers!).

Sometimes that’s okay, it just takes a while to figure out which are the biggies that apply.

On reading these forums, I’m picking up some common, on-going discrepancies amongst the big 4 (e.g. around work/life balance, performance management mechanisms). I’m trying to identify what the other big ones might be, so that I can be aware and prepare for them a bit better.

Your thoughts?

In many organisations, it is reverse speak. So take the values and the reality will be close to the exact opposite.

Interesting. I just looked at the careers section of my current employer, adding in *not* or *don't* into all the cultural comments, and I've got the reality described to a tee. It describes the aspiration rather than the real world current state.

Cool trick.
