Have you considered the cultural impact?

After a workplace investigation, management typically considers two types of actions: corrective and disciplinary.

Each type offers an opportunity to improve the organizational culture.

  • The right disciplinary action will send a message to all other employees about what behaviors are not acceptable.
  • The right corrective action will create or change a process that will direct employees towards a more compliant and ethical behavior.

To maximize the cultural impact of these decisions, management must deliberately aim to improve the culture when making them.
