People often define integrity as doing the right thing even when no one else is around. It is the ability to act with honesty and be consistent in whatever it is you are doing based on the particular moral value or belief compass you have.
Almost every company includes a statement about integrity, first is the innate human ability to rationalize behavior.
As a result, no matter what choice we make, we can convince ourselves that it was made with integrity. So this leads to the second reason why integrity is so difficult: Everyone defines integrity differently. This is further exacerbated by differences in culture
We believe integrity enables us to establish & maintain long term relationships with each of our unique client partners. Clients build a Brand and they are the true essence of any Business. So permanent clients can make a business progress and improves Brand or Business Integrity.
These are the 7 Principles of Integrity:
Customers and clients want to do business with a company that is trustworthy. When trust is at the core of a company, it is easy to recognize. People know they can rely on the character, ability and value provided, and they feel valued in every interaction.
A dedication to high quality standards across the board shows that the company is committed to standing behind what it does and delivering the value it promises. Companies that regularly put out shoddy work or provide inconsistent service are telling customers and would-be customers that they really don’t care about them.
Trust is built on follow-through, on meeting your obligations and commitments as promised. Follow-through also means being transparent about potential problems that might affect the timing or the end-result. It may not be the best outcome, but you can salvage the relationship by being upfront and honest.
“Stakeholders today are taking an intense look at organizations’ impact on society, and their expectations for good corporate citizenship are rising.” It’s not just customers who care. Employees are increasing looking to work for companies that contribute positively to society. There’s even evidence of a direct correlation between CSR index ranking and profitability.
Businesses are designed to create value, but in ethical companies, people view value creation in multiple ways — the company’s profitability is just one of those lenses. They also feel obligated to create value for customers and “do right” by them. As such, it becomes a mutual exchange of value, one that builds strong bonds of loyalty.
Willingness to Change.
Companies only change if there is a willingness to change and, specifically, a willingness to keep getting better. This starts with leaders who are willing to change and listen to other opinions. Getting feedback from team members and employees is the best way to understand different perspectives and improve the company for the future.
Last but not least is respect. Regardless of titles, ages, gender, race, positions or any other differences, everyone should be treated with respect. This goes for employees as well as the public at large.
