Making sure your business is ethically responsible is a surefire way to make sure you stand out. Many businesses still live in the past and don’t think being ethically responsible is as important as providing a quality product. Quality products are important, but many consumers expect businesses to be as ethically responsible as possible these days. This quick guide will help you to get started:
Learn About Cultural Differences
Depending on where you do business, you may need to be aware of cultural differences present that could impact what is ethically responsible and what isn’t. Not every country will have the exact save ethical concerns as your home country.
Ensure Fair Treatment For Workers
Make sure your own workers are being treated fairly, and that anybody involved in the manufacture of your products/services are also treated fairly. Although you may not directly employee people in a factory, working with a factory that does not pay workers fairly or treat them well will reflect badly on your business. As a result you may face backlash and end up building a negative reputation.
Stick To Your Values
Decide what is important to you and your business and stick to it. If fair treatment of workers and a great company culture is important to you, make sure you make that clear. Your culture should be ethical and employees should share in these beliefs.
Accept Feedback And Act On it
Make sure you’re willing to accept feedback and act on it so that your business can improve. The infographic below can give you more information on corporate social responsibility to help you improve further.
