Abstract

Workplace Values in Non-Profit Versus For-Profit Organizations asserts that the workplace values and cultural dimensions as identified by Hofstede, Trompenaars, Hampden-Turner, Hall and others can be utilized to identify sector specific patterns of workplace values. Krug interviews individuals with professional experience in both non-profit and for-profit organizations in an attempt to identify meaningful patterns in workplace values of the non-profit workplace. The study recognizes the importance of understanding workplace values as developed in previous research, and builds on that research through grounded theory in an attempt to identify meaningful patterns in a sector specific sample. The study claims that some of the workplace values in non-profit organizations differ from those in for-profit organizations and that the difference is meaningful.
