One of the fundamental values that employers seek is Integrity. To have integrity means to value relationships as well as acting with honesty and truthfulness. Those who possess this quality appeal to others as trustworthy and reliable, which is one of the five qualities every team member should have. Building Integrity in the workplace will impact trust and coworker relationships which in return can have positive effects on the company’s work environment. Therefore, if you seek a superior workforce focus on building integrity and trust in the workplace. Here are three ways to do just that:
Do Not Gossip:
Do not gossip or assume anything about anyone in the workplace. Go straight to the source and confirm the facts before talking about an absent employee. Trust is learned when people know that their name isn’t talked down upon. It is easier said than done, but the truth is that gossip can be very toxic. If a problem at your workplace arises, try and resolve the issue with the individual in person before reporting it to your supervisor.
