What We Believe

In addition to holding strong ethical values, leaders must focus the attention of their organization on 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
  • open and honest communication
  • the provision of specific guidelines regarding what constitutes ethical conduct
  • the design of systems to support and hold employees accountable for ethical behaviour
