The key to creating a thriving workplace culture - is to be specific about what the values of this thriving culture are. What are the values you want people to exemplify in their work and with each other? This is why Humanistic Management is so important.
The number 1 tip – is to integrate ethical questions into every discussion. What is the moral and right thing to do here? What is a good – and ethical outcome of this situation?
When people talk about workplace culture – they are really talking about morality and ethics. Which is apparently missing – or we wouldn’t be talking about culture.
One way to get an ethical workplace culture – is to make talking about what is ethical and good – part of the normal business practice and you do that – by asking the question – what is the moral thing to do. Whether it has to do with helping a customer or figuring out how to get energy for your company, make sure to talk about ethics.
