Article of the Month: Integrity in the Workplace

  • Work when you are supposed to and save socializing, snacking, searching the Internet and personal phone calls for break time.
  • Turn in the extra change you found in the soda or snack vending machine.
  • Show respect to co-workers with appropriate conversation and empathy.
  • If you are in management, keep your employees informed so they will know what is coming and what needs to be done.
  • Adhere to company policies and procedures. 
  • Be responsible. Do what you say you will do.
  • Use materials for work and not personal use.
  • If you make a mistake and a team’s project gets messed up or you miss a deadline, own up to your mistake. Don’t let teammates take the fall.
  • Work together as a team. This builds trust and shows integrity.
  • Never steal supplies from the workplace.
  • If you find yourself in a conflict of interest, get out of it as soon as possible.
  • Don’t accept praise of acclaim for someone else’s work. That includes stealing someone’s idea or pretending to have worked on a successful project.
  • When making a business deal, make sure everything is on the table and nothing was left out.
  • If your company asks you to do something against your personal code of conduct, refuse. If it means losing a good paying job, so be it. Find a more ethical company to work for.
