Why being an ethical employer is good for your business?
Our behaviour and its impact on society, as well as the environment, is high on most people’s agenda. Increasingly people expect companies to be able to demonstrate commitment to people and purpose not just profit. This includes treating their staff well. Millenials in particular, who by 2025 will make up the majority of the workforce, want to work for companies who are having a positive impact on society. They want their work to be purposeful – and this is more important to them than the salary they will earn.
At HJA we believe it is not enough just to be good employment lawyers. It is also important that the advice we give reflects the best ethical standards and ensures the business upholds its principles and does the right thing by its people, as well as achieving its commercial goals. This not only protects against the perils of employment litigation, but also helps employees to be happier and more productive and means the business will attract and retain good people.
