In the FT's recent report on the World's Most Respected Companies it is interesting to note that eight of the top 10 places for integrity are taken by US companies. According to the FT the words that appear time and time again are honesty and transparency.
But just how seriously is integrity being taken by organisations that supply and consult to the corporates and are they actively seeking the mirror the values of the companies that they supply and advise.?
More importantly is it possible to uphold values in today’s challenging business environment or are ethics being challenged by the bottom-line needs.
