Dishonesty in either could result in disaster for companies. Communication is the element that unites everything else. Employers should encourage employees to communicate either grievances or suggestions. This opportunity will result not only in better mutual understanding, but also in loyalty that arises from being valued as an employee.
4. I certainly would want to do homework on any company I enter for the first time – and particularly one where my predecessor left under a cloud. It could mean many things, which my investigation is obviously meant to reveal. It could mean that the person who left was him- or herself not honest and brought about an unsavory situation. It could also however mean that working conditions became such that the person had no other choice than to leave, even if it meant that unsavory reputations would remain. I would want to thoroughly investigate to determine what the situation was and whether I can viably avoid the same fate.
5. Workplace values have evolved rapidly over the last century or so. For me personally, the most important values include a family friendly workplace, and a company that values both diversity and uniqueness in its employees.
If I were an employee who chose to have a family, I would want my boss to be understanding if my family needs me in times of crisis. I would wish to be supported in times of trouble. I would also appreciate facilities such as day care centers at my workplace, so that I am not too far from my kids, and that I can also perform well at my work. Diversity is also an essential element in the workplace today, particularly in the light of the expanding global environment in which businesses operate. These two values are of most importance to me, and I would expect my workplace to incorporate them.
