Industrial relevance
Many organizations (Government departments and NGO's) integrate QOL indicators and related data into their overall decision-making and performance assessment. Providing valid and reliable data collected across multiple contexts is an important contributor to such organizations with significant policy implications of relevance to macro global and micro community groups.

Many organisations struggle with reducing misconduct. In addition to developing compliance orieted materials (codes of conduct etc.), employees need to develop the competence and cofidence to act in accordance with their best values when confronted with values-based dilemmas. The giving voice to values framework (ethics) provides a framework for just such competence development. Dr Webb provides guidance to organisations in both the public and private sectors looking to develop employee competencies in this area.
