How can employers ward off unethical behavior among employees? They
should make sure managers practice the ethics they preach, provide
flexible working conditions so employees can achieve a work-life balance, and acknowledge ethical behavior, says a
recent Deloitte & Touche survey.
Sharon L. Allen, chairman of the board at Deloitte & Touche USA,
highlighted the importance of flexibility: “In the competitive
environment to attract and retain talent, it is imperative that
employers provide employees with the means to attain a healthy
work-life balance. This is not only key to job satisfaction and
retaining your most valued employees, but it is also critical in
fostering an ethical workplace culture.
