Recognizing and Managing the Effects on Your Organization’s Culture in a “Hybrid” Work Environment

  • Values are critical in maintaining resilience and skillful decision-making in a world where some workers are in the office full time, others part time, and still others not at all.
  • The increased relevance of culture measurement: What is the equivalent of the canary in the coal mine for your company?
  • From performance to people: COVID-19 has begun to realign societal values. What does this mean for the culture of your company?

Can ‘10% more ethical’ be extrapolated?

Key quote on ethical decision making

“It is only right to examine how ethical-decision making benefits society. It is not surprising that some of the benefits are demonstrable in economic terms. As a result, purposeful investment to build ethical infrastructure makes sense for our societies and our economies. As we strive to prosper within planetary boundaries and achieve truly inclusive societies, there is urgency to build trust and the capacity navigate these complex challenges. The practical initiatives proposed in this report provide a blueprint for building the ethical infrastructure we need. The recommendations are farsighted in their aims, and their systematic pursuit cannot start soon enough.”

2020 Nordic Business Ethics Survey

Nordic Business Ethics Network (NBEN) is a professional network for people who share a mission to promote responsible corporate conduct, business integrity, and responsible leadership.

700 people registered for their recent live-streamed release event – you can now, as I have, download the full 2020 Nordic Business Ethics survey report. It is full of useful insights.

Key take-away? Ethical business practice is rewarding,

Yet some people are still to be convinced. Plenty of scope for more work around culture and values across the Nordics.

Also, there’s a replay of the presentation and panel discussion from the event.
