Take The Lead – Maria D’Avanzo, Traliant’s Chief Evangelist Officer, discusses the many benefits of replacing a don’t-rock-the-boat culture with one that encourages employees to report issues and concerns, without worrying about losing their job or other negative actions.
Here’s an excerpt:
As a former chief ethics and compliance officer, I know firsthand the importance of creating a speak-up culture. Companies that value and encourage employees to express their fears, provide feedback, ask questions, report issues and concerns, and make suggestions without fear of retaliation are better able to identify troubling hotspots, reducing the financial and reputational risks to the organization. Such companies also benefit because their employees are usually more engaged, have trust in leadership and tend to stay around.
