Be AWARE of ethical situations.
- “We don’t want to be involved.”
- “We think someone else will take care of it”
Think about the consequences.
- What will happen if I get involved?
Business – If you only think of economics, you don’t look at other points of view.
- If performance reviews are based on sales, employees may not be fully honest with the customer. Base you reviews on customer happiness. Survey your customers.
Be clear about the expectations of employees.
