Employees, board members, customers and other stakeholders are becoming
increasingly interested in the ethical behaviours of private and public sector
organizations. Ethical and responsible behaviour is becoming more important to
The ef approach
Integrity at work is the ethics programme
provided by ef. This unique service will help you refocus the ethical
perspective in your organization. Second, it aims to help employees make better
decisions when faced with ethical issues. Third, it is intended to help people
take ethical considerations seriously. Finally, it demonstrates your commitment
to ethical and responsible practices.
The main benefits of developing greater ethics awareness are obvious. Research
has shown that concentrating on ethics can help improve business performance and
morale — as well as communicating important messages outside the organization.
How it works
The programme begins with the creation of a Code of Ethics - specific for your
organization. At this point, ef can conduct a survey of ethics awareness as part
of your Code Communication Process. Next, the organization decides its approach
to assuring compliance with the Code. Finally, practical training and
development is provided — to leaders and team members — to increase
commitment to ethical behaviour at all levels in the organization.
Introducing your ethics programme
Introducing ethics programmes must be done sensitively. It is especially
important to get the right message for the principled people that represent the
majority of your organization. If you mis-communicate, the ethics programme can be seriously misinterpreted
and can be seen in the totally wrong light. To get greatest benefit, the integrity
at work programme involves all levels of the organization in the communication
and commitment to the programme.
