What is a human being without integrity? Can such a person be trusted, even if he brings the most outstanding talents, abilities and what not? Integrity lies at the soul of a person. So, shouldn’t HR look out for this quality more than anything else?
A webinar being organized by TrainHR, a leading provider of continuous professional education for the HR industry, on December 13 will talk on this important topic of hiring people with integrity. This is something that is very crucial for HR, because it is this department that plays a vital role in recruitment. When it feels that the candidate has all the attributes for making a great employee; that is not enough. Integrity should ideally come before everything else.
Employees that steal are dangerous
When people who have no sense of integrity join an organization; they bring with them several unpleasant happenings. Many employees steal without making it known. When people lift items from the office and it goes undetected; that is a dangerous thing for the organization. When employees steal others’ items such as money and other articles, then that is bad enough. But when they steal the organization’s business secrets, it is the worst thing to happen to an organization, because it gnaws at its vitals.
An organization that confronts habitual thieves is in a difficult position. Many times, when they are difficult to detect even years into their tenure; how does HR see through them at the time of the interview? A background check is not of much help, because it can only verify some already known facts or records. It cannot peer or dig into a person’s mind.
Understand underlying causes
This webinar is for those HR professionals and other managers and supervisors who want to bring in people with integrity into the organization and ensure that those already there have it in amplitude. It will look at stealing employees from both the episodic and underlying perspectives. An employee caught with his hand in the cookie jar may be guilty of stealing much more than cookies and this attitude may be a result of some deep-rooted intentions or experiences. This session will offer insights into how to deal with such employees.
