"Integrity is doing the right thing, even when no one is watching.” CS Lewis
In the workplace, we all want to be around people who are honest and trustworthy. Establishing a moral and ethical framework, and building that into the very core of your company is essential in creating a work environment centered on integrity. Here at Dexcomm, integrity is one of our core values and every employee is trained on what having integrity means to us. We also have a program in place that rewards employees who consistently demonstrate integrity. It can be very hard to pinpoint who has integrity and who does not, so here are a few things that you can look for when dealing with others to determine if the people that you work with have integrity.
Examples of integrity:
- Can you put your food in the kitchen and have it there when you go for lunch?
- Can your coworkers uphold their responsibility in a teamwork environment?
- Do your coworkers have your back when you are tied up with a customer or need assistance completing your work?
- Do you work with others who will do the right thing at all times and not sacrifice morals for peers or employer - no matter how unpopular it may make them?
Food for thought....
At some time or another, you will probably be asked to do something that may compromise your integrity. Keep this thought in mind if you are ever asked to do so: is it worth degrading my name to commit this act? A breach in integrity, even once, can compromise every good deed that you have done.
