The Heart of Top Employers: Establishing and Maintaining a Strong Ethical Culture
- Identify the mission of your organization with buy-in from your leadership team.? When employees understand the core values and ethics within an organization's mission and see that the leadership stands behind it, they become loyal to the mission and purpose of the organization.
- Be consistent in communicating to your employees about the impact the values and ethics of your organization have on daily activities and your organization's overall mission. Organize brown bag lunches and various interactive ways to remind and encourage employees about specific values and ethics at your organization. Reward behavior that reflects and exemplifies these morals and cite examples that demonstrate the application of these principles in a company newsletter, intranet, etc.
- Highlight the ethics and values inherent in the mission and purpose of your organization frequently.? With this emphasis, employees are more likely to appreciate and recognize the priority given to maintaining strong ethics within the organization.
- Always strive to keep the lines of communication within the organization wide open, enabling employees to ask questions and receive clarification on various situations they may confront.
