Podcasts easy ways to make money cipd

Philippa lamb: we all like to think we behave ethically at work easy ways to make money but what does that really mean and does getting your easy ways to make money job done sometimes mean you have to push ethical considerations easy ways to make money aside. With trust in organisations and employers being eroded by one easy ways to make money scandal after another a lot of good work is being easy ways to make money done to build better values into business behaviour and we’ve been tracking that work here on the podcast series easy ways to make money for the past four years.

In 2015 we looked at how to weave ethics into easy ways to make money organisational culture. Two years later we dug into the work the CIPD easy ways to make money was doing on ethical behaviour in leaders. Now there’s new work from the CIPD on the role that easy ways to make money line managers and job design both play in making business easy ways to make money more ethical. The findings are worrying, about a third of hrs say they’ve seen unethical behaviour in managers and around the same easy ways to make money number admit they can feel torn between how they’d like to behave and what their employer wants from easy ways to make money them. So when it comes to ethics HR is right on easy ways to make money the front line.

Mel green: yeah they are and I think we hear this a easy ways to make money lot that there’s potentially sometimes a disconnect between what the organisation wants easy ways to make money and employees want. It’s a difficult tension between the people and profit and easy ways to make money I think HR are in the middle of that as easy ways to make money the ethical conscience but also the link between management and easy ways to make money employees too so we know it can be a tricky easy ways to make money balance to make.

PL: the first voice there was mel green, research adviser at the CIPD and author of the new easy ways to make money report rotten apples, bad barrels and sticky situations. Next up was kate griffiths lambeth, a lawyer by training, her career has taken her from city trader to HR easy ways to make money at a fintech startup to her current role as HRD easy ways to make money at investment management firm charles stanley.

PL: any instances of things which people might not perceive as easy ways to make money being directly unethical like perhaps a little bit of misrepresentation easy ways to make money to a client, perhaps a little bit of not telling them the bits easy ways to make money in the report that aren’t bolstering your case but the fudging things around the easy ways to make money edges and that’s about culture isn’t it, that what’s deemed to be acceptable?

Philippa foster back: I think it is, it’s filtering down and it’s filtering up because of course the new people entering easy ways to make money the workforce have got very different views from those of easy ways to make money us who have been around for a longer time but easy ways to make money I think it is filtering through but unfortunately a lot easy ways to make money of people have said that the middle area, the middle management, the permafrost, is stopping it filtering through. I don’t think that is necessarily the case, I think they’re not being helped to filter it through. So some of the work from the recent CIBT report easy ways to make money does touch on this because it’s how you set up the culture, the organisation, the target-setting etc. For that middle layer in order to be able to easy ways to make money do their jobs in the right way, that is what makes the difference and that’s what brings you back to culture.

MG: I think we know that it is an issue for easy ways to make money business despite continued focus on it. So I think we know that trust is eroded in easy ways to make money business, we know that, for example, people seem to give less to charities now, after the scandal in the charity sector there’s been some research on that. But equally it’s not the case that there’s rotten apples everywhere, it’s more about shifting businesses to be able to become easy ways to make money more ethical and supporting their employees to do so I’d say rather than a large-scale disaster.

MG: yeah so we looked at a huge amount of research easy ways to make money for this report because we wanted to give a really easy ways to make money evidence-based look at the practices that organisations can engage with easy ways to make money to enable their employees to be more ethical. And we identified three levels of that. So the rotten apples talked about the individual level risk easy ways to make money factors, let’s say, for unethical behaviour, so that’s anything from personality to mood, all of those things play a role. Then the sticky situations are very much the day to easy ways to make money day tasks and situations and decisions that employees have to easy ways to make money make. Sometimes they can be sticky, something it can be difficult to act ethically because of easy ways to make money the way jobs are designed, the way reward is designed for example. And lastly we can’t forget the bad barrels, so the climate and the leadership in an organisation of easy ways to make money course have a huge impact on how people behave and easy ways to make money social norms are really powerful, we know that, so what the norm is can often guide behaviour.

MG: codes of ethics and codes of conduct are a really easy ways to make money good signpost and I think we know that they’re effective but they’re effective when they’re actually used – they can’t be an empty shell policy where there’s a code of conduct but let’s say a high performer does something slightly unethical and easy ways to make money they get away with it. So it’s really about fairly applying those policies and embedding them easy ways to make money into everything that the organisation does for them to really easy ways to make money have teeth.

KGL: when the weinstein case was coming out I pointed out easy ways to make money that in california it’s compulsory to have sexual harassment and discrimination training. It didn’t seem to make a blind bit of difference to easy ways to make money be quite honest. It isn’t the training that makes the difference, it’s the culture. It’s having an environment where people feel trusted; feel that it’s safe to speak out, where from the top downwards it is exemplified by the easy ways to make money leadership and therefore people, that’s what they will emulate, it’s what they will copy. There are things that you can do to help, for example you can draft aspects into people’s job description so it’s spelt out in black and white.

PFB: you tick all the boxes and you think once you’ve done it, oh good that’s done and put it away in the bottom drawer. That’s a very dangerous way to react because if you easy ways to make money think about it every time you hire a new person easy ways to make money into the organisation their journey with the organisation starts, they need to know how they should be behaving in easy ways to make money this organisation not how perhaps they were doing it before easy ways to make money and bringing it, so they need help. They need guidance. It needs induction. So more effort perhaps needs to be made continuously, a sort of drip feed for people just to not easy ways to make money lose sight that this is the right way to behave, or behave sounds you’re on the naughty step, but the right way to undertake business in order to easy ways to make money demonstrate to your customers that you are a trustworthy business easy ways to make money to deal with.

PFB: I would suggest that most people don’t wish to do any unethical behaviour, they get drawn into it and sometimes just by cutting easy ways to make money a corner and not realising that they have, and once you cut a corner it’s very difficult to make it a right angle again. So I think that’s one of the aspects. I think it’s where they context of their role comes. If they are set unattainable targets which they know are easy ways to make money unattainable, probably their boss knows is unattainable but hasn’t got the courage to push back from what they’ve been told to do, you get this well of feeling and almost immediate stress, being given something you know you can’t achieve yet you know you have to if you easy ways to make money want to keep your job, that is extremely stressful and I’m sure a lot of mental health issues are being easy ways to make money caused by this. People just need to be more realistic and more honest easy ways to make money actually.

KGL: well we split it into three, so you’ve got individuals who need to improve; we’ve got individuals who are perfectly good and acceptable and easy ways to make money then we have the exceptional role models. We’ve made it very clear in training that not everybody easy ways to make money is a role model and you have to be able easy ways to make money to evidence what it is that puts you into that easy ways to make money bracket and there is a premium as far as discretionary easy ways to make money bonuses are concerned for individuals who are role models and easy ways to make money achieve their objectives. So there’s a financial driver in there; there’s a slight kudos driver in there because people know easy ways to make money that you’ve got the badge and others haven’t; but it also has meant that we can show to easy ways to make money people what good ethical conduct looks like. And people are talking about it.

MG: the way that work is organised is quite important so easy ways to make money as I’ve mentioned earlier there are few people who are inherently easy ways to make money rotten apples but there are things in the way that easy ways to make money we work that can make it difficult to behave ethically. So one interesting finding was that when jobs are quite easy ways to make money monotonous more unethical behaviour can occur. And that might seem slightly counterintuitive because you might think easy ways to make money you have more time to think about your decisions but easy ways to make money actually what the research suggests is that when you’re doing quite a monotonous role sometimes you go on easy ways to make money autopilot. So you’re not engaging with the potential ethical outcomes of your easy ways to make money behaviour. So that’s something that organisations can think about, and managers can too, when you’re thinking about things like work pressure, how much variety people have, it’s all part of having a good job really but easy ways to make money there’s particularly ethical lenses through which we can think about easy ways to make money those things.

PFB: no future in that line of work, but it was one of the few times in my easy ways to make money life to actually stand and do a really monotonous job easy ways to make money and you realise that there are an awful lot of easy ways to make money pitfalls that can happen around it. What I didn’t have, because it was only going to be for two or easy ways to make money three weeks, was I hadn’t developed a pride in the job. So I think even if you’re doing a monotonous job as some of us would easy ways to make money see it but you actually have pride in your work easy ways to make money and what you turn out that changes the nature of easy ways to make money the job. And I think where employers can help people in those easy ways to make money sorts of jobs is actually develop some semblance of how easy ways to make money they can have pride in it by what they achieve easy ways to make money and so they can see where they are with the easy ways to make money cog in the wheel.

MG: so there’s some really interesting findings around if an employee is easy ways to make money far removed from the end-user, or they won’t see the outcome of their actions, thinking about the longer-term impact of their decision isn’t going to be forefront of their mind. So that gives a really nice practical way for organisations easy ways to make money to think about bringing ethics to the forefront.

PFB: it does need to take that into account and it easy ways to make money needs to take into account how the organisation wants decisions easy ways to make money to be made. So one of the things we have seen, and we promote ourselves, is for organisations to have decision-making models which are used in the boardroom down to easy ways to make money the front desk. So that people understand that the first question is how easy ways to make money would this decision fit with our values, is actually a very important one to consider and then easy ways to make money various other questions. And then the final question is, is it legal? Because we have seen models where it starts with is easy ways to make money it legal? And people think oh well of course it is, I’m sure it is, no perfectly all right! And they never get to the second question.

PFB: whistle blowing is a very negative term and if you easy ways to make money go back to the original antecedents if you like, in the days of mining when people were down the easy ways to make money pits if something went wrong what did they do? They blew the whistle to bring people to the mine easy ways to make money head and usually it was an accident sadly. The referee blows the whistle after the event, doesn’t blow it in anticipation of an event. So we’re talking about something having happened. Now actually what organisations want is to know in advance easy ways to make money of something that could happen, something that might be wrong, somebody’s seen something, something doesn’t look right, somebody’s behaviour, some process.

KGL: actually I’ve been involved in a culture sprint with the FCA, which is our regulator, and they gave us six different scenarios and one of easy ways to make money the ones that we had was linked to people being easy ways to make money comfortable speaking out but also the fact that frequently in easy ways to make money an environment where you’ve got people of different levels, a junior person may not want to speak out in easy ways to make money front of somebody senior in case it sheds them in easy ways to make money a bad light. So we’ve actually got little tents that we put on meeting easy ways to make money tables now to remind the senior people to let the easy ways to make money junior people speak up first rather than speaking over them easy ways to make money and putting all their ideas on the table and people easy ways to make money then feeling frightened to raise something in case it’s seen as conflict or contradicting.

KGL: we are still in the testing the concept phase because easy ways to make money I promised the FCA so we’ve got trial runs in which we do it at easy ways to make money meetings and trial meetings in which we don’t. But actually the outcome is very positive so far and easy ways to make money people are reporting a change in behaviour just by having easy ways to make money the subliminal reminder there. So there’s lots of things that you can do to help easy ways to make money communicate and get messages across.
