Where do your priorities lie when times are tough? Would you for instance be willing to move to a smaller or less prestigious office for the ΓÇ£Greater GoodΓÇ¥ ΓÇô or would you happily sit back and watch a colleague clear their desk in order to keep your personal status quo?
This kind of moral conundrum has perhaps become increasing relevant in recent times, with government cuts, economic chaos and growing uncertainty making people focus on not only what they have, but increasingly on how they are able to protect it.
