Diversity, Ethics and Sustainability

Diversity

The common theme in most definitions of diversity is the inclusion of different types of people (of caste, creed, colour, or cultures) in a social group or an organization. The differences could be in terms of race, ethnicity, gender, age, religious beliefs, socio-economic status or any other ideology. Creating an environment where such differences are accepted and respected is the need of the hour given the global nature of organisations. Not just tolerating these differences, but welcoming them with an open mind will help realise the true potential of all individuals in an organisation.

At TMTC we are designing learning interventions that facilitate the creation of such a work culture. 

Ethics

Recent events in corporate India have demonstrated the negative impact of unethical behaviour. This makes many of us wonder why successful and business savvy professionals behave this way. This phenomenon is not limited to India or any specific country. All of us hear and read about it all the time. It is typically fostered by short-term greed. Enron and WorldCom are well known examples of corporate destruction by unethical behaviour.


Many in the corporate world say that business leaders are under tremendous pressure to deliver in the short-term which leads to unethical behaviour. We disagree! While business leaders are expected to run their businesses as profitably as they can, this does not mean that they can compromise on ethics as in the long run this would put their entire organization at risk. Any business that lacks ethical principles is slowly but surely moving towards failure.

Ethical behaviour is one of the important and essential qualities in any leader. Our customized programmes are designed to help you understand how you can make a difference in building an ethical organization.
