A focus on integrity can have benefits far beyond strengthening the ethical conduct of an organisation. This is an outcome explored on the Baldridge website. Baldridge is an internationally recognised business model based on extensive research of the common characteristics found in high performing organisations around the globe.Ethics have an inherent value but also an expansive influence. They can rally people around ambitious goals and get them agreeing to changed policies and procedures. They can get a focus on results, the pursuit of process improvements and the celebrating of success. Ethics – and safety and diversity can have a similar mobilising effect – can be a lever for leaders to use to transform their organisations.
