Be open and flexible, please!

Transparency in the workplace - an open and honest communication channel between employees and leadership - has a significant positive impact on workplace culture overall according to a recent survey conducted by Opinion Research on behalf of Deloitte.

The survey reveals that there is a strong relationship between greater openness and transparency by leadership and ethical behavior at work. In fact, 84 percent of respondents agree that openness by leadership contributes to a more ethical workplace culture. Moreover, 68 percent said it would create a more values-based organization.

Another factor that leads to a more productive and engaging work environment is the ability to better balance work schedule and personal priorities. Modern lives demand greater flexibility ... for leaders and for the workforce.
