This chapter explores the definition of work as ‘the creation of something of value’ through an ontological analysis of the concept of value. Alfred Whitehead’s 1929 process-ontological framework is proposed as a suitable schema for the analysis of work as a measure of value. Further, when analysed in light of Whitehead’s scheme, the structure of both work and value are seen to be closely intertwined. Thus, the use of Whitehead’s framework is a valuable ontological tool in exploring the processual entities of work and value.
