This research aims to understand the primary motives for volunteering in Australian emergency services, and the main reasons for volunteer turnover. Values are the enduring principles and beliefs that guide and motivate personal and group attitudes and behaviours. Utilising a well-established values evaluation framework, this study is seeking to identify the distinctive and dominant personal and shared values that motivate volunteer participation in emergency services, and to evaluate the importance of individual, group and organisational values alignment for volunteer satisfaction, commitment and retention.
