Why ethics is important in the workplace?
“Businesses with trustworthy workers often stand out among competitors. A culture of happy employees rubs off on consumers, and they’re attracted to people they can trust and respect. This is why true team players and people with ethical decision-making skills are so widely sought by employers. Before the BBB Foundation’s LIFT certificate, there was no easy way companies to tell just what kind of person they’re bringing aboard. Many people put buzz words like “team player” on their resumes but there’s no proof they are. There was nothing to show they’ve worked at developing those interpersonal skills.” – Len Andrusiak, CEO BBB Manitoba & NW Ontario, A certificate like no other – posted in Winnipeg Free Press- Community Forum July 8, 2019.
