Hiring can be a time-consuming task for companies, and yet if you have employees, you understand it is an important part of business. Too few staff can
lead to employee burnout, too many can lead to payroll nightmares. Natural attrition, employee termination, and business growth all lead to the need
to hire, and there is no way to get around it. Staffing and recruiting firms fill the gap when your business
has employment needs.

While there is no way to eliminate unethical issues in the workplace, management can take a proactive approach in hiring and managing to limit code of ethics violations. Getting to know your employees as human beings, understanding the ethics issues they may come across, positioning your company as ethical, hiring with qualities in mind, and continuous training are all ways to have integrity and ethics in the workplace.
Hire with Ethics in Mind
Interview questions will always give employers an opportunity to interact with a potential candidate, but don’t always demonstrate how they will be as an employee. In addition to questions that gauge their skills, ask questions to see if they align with company culture and ethics. Ask them about times they have had to demonstrate your unique company values as well as in an actual ethics situation.
Get to Know Your Employees
Oftentimes, once the interview and orientation are over, we have little interaction with new employees. Build processes that allow for more interaction with employees which will help managers to know them on a deeper level, such as team projects, social events, or even contests. Seeing what motivates employees will contribute in managing them better.
Understand Potential Ethics Issues
Listen to frontline staff, as well as managers, about concerns they see that could be challenging. Specifically ask for these issues to be raised, as part of your overall culture. One-to-one meetings are a good place to ask for this type of feedback. Be sure to create an environment that praises and not punishes truth-telling.
Position Your Company
Having values posted and enforced that demonstrate integrity, honesty, ethics, transparency...can help create a culture of ethics. A public face that promotes your values also positions your company as a leader in principles.
As laws and political climates change, so must ethics training. Understanding diversity and being sensitive to it, communicating applicable laws, and clarifying expected behaviors both in and outside the workplace will go a long way in supporting company ethics. Ongoing and even specialized, systematic trainings should be part of your annual training plans.
Have you heard the expression: “birds of a feather flock together”? When you have positioned your company as having high integrity and hire, train, and create a culture that proves it, you can then attract more of that in employees, clients, and even vendor relationships.

For those who hire employees in Denver, the hope is that they
are choosing the not just the right people for the specific jobs, but those who will be the right types of employees overall. You hope that through
your questions in the interview process, you will discover that the candidates are honest, dependable, on time and team players. However, you typically
don't truly discover this information until after they are hired. While this can be true, there are ways to increase your chances of finding the right
type of employee.
