“In law a man is guilty when he violates the rights of others.
In ethics he is guilty if he only thinks of doing so.”- Immanuel Kant.
The Ethisphere Institute’s 2014 list of the world’s most ethical companies has been released. The Institute assesses businesses on five parameters: ethics and compliance program, reputation, leadership and innovation, governance, corporate citizenship, and responsibility and culture of ethics. All businesses strive to be compliant with legal guidelines and regulatory requirements. So, what could set some businesses apart and gain them recognition for an ethical approach which extends beyond the norm?
Curious to learn more about what it takes for a staffing company to qualify as ethical, we delved deeper to bring you some guidelines. Given that a staffing company is committed to candidates on the one side and customers on the other, let us look at both of these aspects separately.
The only way to sustain such a responsible program is to adopt written standards, review them periodically, impart ongoing training to all stakeholders, establish oversight and monitoring, audit for violations, and enforce through disciplinary measures. However, issues that come up in a real time work environment may not always find a ready solution. So, it falls to the leaders of the business to maintain good governance and transparency and high levels of ethical standards to stay on course and come up with suitable responses to any challenges faced.
