Respect is mostly defined, in many dictionaries, dominantly as valuing … being kind to, esteeming, honouring, regarding, being polite to, showing courtesy to, considering, noting, recognizing, taking into account
Admire is often used equally with respect, yet in most dictionaries and thesauruses, admire is best defined as the quality of looking up to someone for his/her/their accomplishments/achievements, rather than for just being a person
Value is defined by the company as a discretionary value because people choose who or what to value, making the choice at their discretion
Principle, in contrast to a value, is a universal idea adopted by the majority and applicable to everyone, therefore making the decision to decide who or what is valuable or is not as obsolete in order to foster true acts of equality in human and natural interactions
