Know thyself

Why do we survey our employees?

Why do we ask them to disclose potential conflicts of interests?

Why do we provide training and track its completion?

Why do we maintain an anonymous hotline?

Why do we approve business gifts before they are given?

Why do we have a code of ethics?

Why do we recognize positive behavior?

Why?

Our employees want to know.

Otherwise, it all seems like CYA stuff to them. Things we do to avoid fines and penalties.

Instead of focussing our efforts on telling our employees what to do, we should tell them who we are.

When we know who we are, we know what to do.
