You probably already expect your employees to do what’s right, respect others and perform with excellence. But how do you effectively communicate your expectations? Even if you’re not yet doing business with the Federal government where an ethics program may be a requirement, your enterprise can benefit from formalizing standards of conduct and business practices. The advantages include:
- Reduced legal risks
- Increased employee engagement and retention
- Improved behavioral problem solving
- Enhanced reputation with suppliers, employees and customers
