Good Thoughts from the Two Ethics Chris-es
And both of them less-than-easy to link to!
Chris Bauer’s e-newsletter posed the scenario of a disconnect between a company’s ethics policies and its other behavior.
If you are in an organization with a CSR program that seems out of synch with the rest of its actions, you may have a great opportunity to lobby for a better alignment between your organization’s stated values and its actual actions. The strategy to use? Simply point out the CSR program as a great example of fulfilling the company’s stated values and contrast that with its other policies and actions. If the contrast is glaring enough, you may have a shot at driving your point home, assuming you know how to pick the right audience and style for your remarks.
