It is all to easy to turn a blind eye, remain silent. Sometimes, knowing what the right choice or action is and how to go about it, whether and how to speak up can be confused by role, risk, reward or task and sometimes, the priorities set by their management or organisation or their approachability. Employers can unwittingly encourage the wrong behaviours for perfectly rational reasons. Most people who find themselves on the wrong side of a scandal, corporate fraud, bribery or corruption probe consider themselves fundamentally honest. However where opportunity (gaps), motivation (the individual’s why) and justification (rationalising self interest) are present, then along comes ethical risk too.
At Floodlight Business, we know it is not easy to navigate being your own corporate conscience, yet it is vital to your own personal well-being as well as your employment and your employers success. We help employees unpick the legalities and internal policies as applied to their role, location and activity. We deliver client support, training, workshops and facilitation sessions in a way to ensure the personal risk of self interest versus integrity is well understood. When we embark on these projects, we expect our employer clients to be fully onboard, providing support to their teams enabling and rewarding them to make the right choice, on a recurring basis. If there is an inconsistent message, no-one gains from the effort or investment in these initiatives.
choices determine futures. bring your best self.
