Measuring the integration of our core values in your ministry unit is essential. It involves monitoring values-based behaviour in your context. Transforming the collected data into information that can be used to make decisions makes measurement meaningful. Although values seem like a difficult thing to measure, there are some ways to determine how well our core values are integrated into your ministry unit. Here are two ways:

Ongoing Feedback

Understanding how our core values are being integrated into your ministry unit involves seeking feedback from those on the front-lines. This means asking, regularly, if people are seeing our core values lived in your operation. This should not be limited to employees – ask your clients, ask your suppliers, ask your board members. By engaging all of your people, you will be able to find effective ways to integrate our core values in your context and identify areas for improvement.


Surveys provide a more formal way of collecting feedback from your people to better understand their thoughts and concerns about our core values at work.

You can create your own survey or contact the Ethics Centre for options.
