What do employees want most in their company’s values? That is a question that has plagued companies for many, many years. I would argue that one of the concepts which should be in the conversation is respect for a company’s ethical values. One of the tasks in any company is to get senior and middle management to respect the stated ethics and values of a company, because if they do so, this will be communicated down through the organization. This topic was explored in a recent article, entitled “If the Supervisors Respect Values, So Will Everyone Else”, in the Corner Office section of the New York Times (NYT), when reporter Adam Bryant interviewed Victoria Ransom, the Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of Wildfire, a company which provides social media marketing software.
