Workplace Conduct

Professional conduct in the workplace is necessary. If employees conduct themselves appropriately, it indicates that they take pride and accountability in their company's ethical standards and demonstrate awareness and respect for other employees, customers, suppliers, and partners. But when conduct is poor, company failures can happen—and that’s not a risk that any organization should take.

HRDQ offers workplace conduct training materials that address a wide variety of social behaviors such as rudeness, appearance, language, cultural differences, inter-personal issues, and more. Workplace harassment training materials are especially important in today’s work environment. Organizations should strive to foster an environment where employees are treated with courtesy, dignity and fairness.

Developing Trust in the Workplace

Trust is an important element of every relationship—both personal and professional. If there isn’t a fundamental basis of trust in a work environment, projects suffer. Managers need to trust their employees to do the job they were hired to do, and employees need to trust that their managers will lead them to success.

There are a few ways to gain trust at work:

  • Act with integrity. Be open and honest with your peers. A reputation for integrity is what helps others to trust you.
  • Judge substance. Don’t just evaluate on looks alone—people can usually tell. Look below the surface.
  • Offer status reports and forecasts. Keeping others informed of your actions and future plans helps them feel more comfortable, which makes them more likely to trust you.
  • Confront tough issues. When people avoid difficulties, others see them as being less than honest. Approach issues head-on.
  • Listen well. It’s hard to trust others who don’t listen to them. It’s hard for you to act in their best interests if you aren’t aware of what those interests are.
  • Make realistic commitments and keep them. Don’t over-promise and under-deliver. Your current actions are the basis for others’ predictions about your future behavior.
  • Set high expectations. By establishing high expectations, you are implicitly saying you believe the person can and will deliver. Keep people on your team who work to meet your expectations.
  • Rigorously evaluate employees. Evaluate your employees thoroughly and fairly to assess what they are capable of.
