Additional Information:An output from an ESRC funded research project rated as 'outstanding'. Focused on the role of values, it highlights values as something professionals have, and as a contingent and relational process of giving value to different goods. The article contributes to our understanding of agency. It suggests that in understanding the relationship between modernisation and workers' motivations we need a more complex conceptual framework than is offered by the public sector/ private sector ethos distinctions or those of economic individualism. Social Policy and Administration was chosen as a key contributor to these debates. Contribution 33%
