How do you answer 'What job values are important to you' in a job interview?

When performing employee surveys, I've seen many cases where ethical business practices are considered most important by employees and management. If the job itself is your focus, performing ethically, knowing that you contribute in a significant way, and knowing that the results are valued are usually considered admirable job values. Concern about whether the pay is far, if the rewards are ever increasing or whether you can earn additional time off are not "values" and are usually perceived as more self centered and therefore not impressive in a job candidate.
