The majority of unethical decisions don’t stem from intention, they grow from haste. What begins as a seemingly small, unimportant exception can easily become a habitual bending of the rules.
Place ethics at the forefront of your business practices by priming your employees. Talk about ethics with your team. Set aside a small amount of time each week or month to go over case studies. Discuss the short-term and long-term outcomes of both good and bad decisions. Employees who are actively thinking about ethics are more likely to recognize and identify potential ramifications before a decision is made.
