Integrity Management

  • Established compliance management systems are not sufficient to guarantee that employees act in a law-abiding and ethical manner. In fact, modern compliance management systems rather require complementary initiatives such as an integrity management which expands the focus which is often only limited to legal content, by considering business decisions also from a moral, social, societal, and ecological perspective. The goal of integrity management is not simply having employees strictly following the rules, but instead promoting moral conduct. Therefore, integrity management particularly pays attention to the ethical behavior of the individual employee, as well as the company and management culture. The company culture can be understood as the sum of the organization’s collective values, convictions, attitudes, and mindsets. The authors point out possibilities and limitation on how companies can influence their culture by setting up targets, incentive and sanctions schemes, in addition to the already-existing control measures.
