What kind of core values does your company live by? Or, a better question: How closely do you and your employees follow your company’s core values on a daily basis? Having a high moral standard starts at the top – when leadership shows strong moral character, the workforce follows suit. So, how can you promote morality and nobility within your organization?
Lead By Example
We’ve already touched on the best way to promote morality and nobility in your company culture: Lead by example. When leadership holds themselves to a certain standard, it’s made clear that everyone under them is expected to follow suit. And employees aren’t likely to respect a supervisor who doesn’t treat them right – they have no reason to. When leaders treat employees with the respect and integrity they deserve, they’ll receive the same in return.
Treat Clients With Respect
If your employees don’t treat clients the right way, maintaining customer loyalty will be nearly impossible. In the same way that you want your workforce to treat each other with a high moral standard, make sure the same approach is applied to your clients. Every member of your organization needs to be aware of how to interact with clients – and the potential consequences if a client is treated disrespectfully.
Update Your Employee Handbook
What good is having a high moral standard and adherence to your company’s core values if it’s not made official? Don’t forget to update your employee handbook with language surrounding the expectations you have of employees. Make it clear that your workforce is expected to treat others – their coworkers, clients, vendors, etc. – with respect and kindness. It’s the best way to ensure that existing employees as well as new hires coming into the organization know what’s expected of them and their conduct.
