What We Believe

In addition to holding strong ethical values, leaders must also focus the attention of their organization to being ethically responsible. In addition, they must infuse the organization with ethical principles to guide the actions of employees:

  • Through consistent, visible actions that serve as models for others
  • Through open and honest communication
  • Through the provision of specific guidelines regarding what constitutes ethical conduct
  • Through the design of systems to support and hold employees accountable for ethical behaviour
