For many years, integrity was a decorative accessory of corporate compliance initiatives. Several years ago, and in the light of major scandals, compliance began to take center-stage. It became clearer than ever: An organization must know which rules, laws, and guidelines to follow.
Today, in view of the many gray zones and the almost unmanageable number of individuals who must comply to rules and regulations, it is clear that something else may be needed, the other side of the coin, so to speak: Integrity as the culture of a company, which allows a firm to act according to common rules and values, spoken or unspoken.
Therefore, we offer a comprehensive range of services regarding Integrity Management. Starting with the complete establishment of an Integrity Management program, but also the strategic further development, optimization, and deeper anchoring of integrity in the company.
Integrity allows for new market opportunities, increases the value of a company, enhances its external appeal, and reduces the risk of errors and liability.
Ethical standards and principles should be clearly formulated at the highest level of a company because they provide orientation for action and make an expectation transparent. A common understanding and alignment of perspectives are needed. Only in this way can integrity be lived.
Integrity should be made a topic throughout the company because only continuous discussion ensures the presence of the topic in everyday work and a living culture of integrity. Only in this way can integrity inspire.
Empowering managers and employees is important so that they are prepared for uncertainties and critical situations. It also means raising awareness of integrity as a decisive decision-making criterion. Only in this way can integrity become a natural part of everyday working life.
A change network should be established whose members are actively involved in the change. The network serves as an idea generator and driver of cultural change, and its members as contacts and role models. This is the only way to implement or maintain integrity in an organization.
Integrity should be anchored in processes as a strategic and operational control variable. For example, appropriate HR systems should reward correct behavior and eliminate incorrect incentives or targets. Only in this way can integrity provide security of action.
Effective integrity management requires a robust governance structure. Only in this way can integrity be deeply and sustainably anchored organizationally and consistently throughout the company.
Integrity management means project management: successful implementation of a clear plan on target, on time, on budget. Only in this way can initiatives not only get off to a powerful start, but also be successful in the long term.
Integrity should be communicated internally as a first step: This is the only way employees can understand integrity and act accordingly. If integrity is not just lip service, it is also advisable to start communicating it externally. This is the only way to position integrity with stakeholders and use it as a value driver.
