Employees Care About Ethics at Work

It has not escaped any well-attuned management these days that employees are overflowing with strong opinions, and lots of them, often on subjects that were traditionally frowned upon as talking points in the workplace. Those days are gone, writes Ian Heinig on The Manifest. “People want their work to have integrity...As the work-life barrier becomes more porous, employees seek jobs that help them feel ethically sound...Hence, a company’s social and environmental commitments are key drivers in employee recruitment, retention, and loyalty.” For those looking for data to support this anecdotal evidence, Heinig’s report, “How Do Employees Act When Faced with Unethical Company Behavior,” provides the numbers as to how much ethics matters in today’s work environment.
