What is the culture of your organization? What are their core values? Are core values discussed in the mission or vision? Do you have discussions about ethics and ethical decision-making? Should you be having that discussion? Are the core values and culture of an organization really important? Or not? I will wrtie about Automatic Data Processing (ADP)

OUR BUSINESS CULTURE
Our core values are the foundation for all our activities. Our ever-evolving culture is guided by our core values and motivated, results-oriented associates. I strongly think that ADP is driven by the mission, vision and its core values on a daily basis. I am glad to work for an organization that not just has something in writing but that they actually care and ensure that they are living up to what they stand for.
Ethical decision-making discussions should always be discussed with all employees and at all job levels. There could always be a potential issue that requires attention but could be an ethical or legal issue. Employees must be aware and be trained on what the best practice is or whom to report the issues to. We all come from different backgrounds and ethnicities and therefore, ethical job standards must be talked about and followed at all times.
