“Our research indicates that when employees believe they work for an ethical company, 55% are Truly Loyal to their organization. When employees do not believe they work for an ethical company, only 9% are Truly Loyal.”
‘When Can You Afford Not to be Ethical?’ December 2004, Walker Information
Leaders who wish to increase productivity, decrease turnover, reduce misconduct, and lessen ethics risk should:
* Provide ethics training (live and online ethics training)
* Ensure that ethics resources – such as hotlines (ethics hotline and case management), procedural justice systems, and standards of conduct (ethics code tips) – are available to management and employees and that those resources are effectively designed, implemented, and promoted.
