Communicating ethics in the workplace can be challenging. The topic is vast, and the implications of misconduct are serious.
42% of employees believe their company has a weak ethical culture – and 35% observed misconduct but didn’t report it.
Common topics include harassment, bribery, fraud, inappropriate gifting (and receiving) and conflicts of interest. The challenge for internal communicators is how to effect behavioral-change, and awaken employees’ understanding of this serious area.
That's why embedding positive ethical behavior takes more than a one-off ethics training session. Something this important demands a comprehensive, integrated communications plan.
Maximize interest in and attendance at training sessions through customized desktop Screensavers or Wallpapers. Circulate a staff survey to assess levels of current knowledge.
Improve staff awareness of important policy or process updates via ticker messages which direct to your corporate intranet.
