If you search Wikipedia, you will find the definition that work ethic is a belief that work and diligence have a moral benefit and an inherent ability, virtue or value to strengthen character and individual abilities.
In reality, the perceptions of the public, the clients, competition and the way companies operate, often come down to the work ethics. Ethics in the workplace is also reflected in how the organization treats the customers and suppliers, how the employees interact with others, how they perform tasks, and how they communicate internally and externally. A truly ethical workplace must shape ethical behaviour from the top-down and from the inside out. But how do we really build strong workplace ethics?
In Axapta Masters, every year we are holding internal workshops on topics related to communications and presentations skills, cybersecurity and of course for work ethics especially in the field of information ethics. These workshops are helping us guide the employees and help them grow as the team and the whole company grows. Also, as an ISO Certified company, we are consistent in the high-quality delivery of services internally and externally for extended networks and end customers. Because most of the projects require handling clasified information, Including monitoring, reviewing, maintaining, and improving the company’s information security management systems and of our clients, our employees must be focused and sharp in their information ethics.
If responsibility, efficiency, and professionalism are combined in one place – we can talk about work ethic in all of it’s dimensions of realization. As individuals, we often see taking responsibility as a one-way street. In fact, the responsibility always has as many sides as there are parties in its fulfilment and is the foundation from which ethics and success come from.
Just as employees are aware of the responsibilities, their conscientious work and handling of highly sensitive information, at the same time it is the responsibility of a company to educate and protect its employees, as well as the clients they deliver services to. Efficiency and professionalism are just upgrades to the experience that is built by the conscious and responsible work of a group of individuals, who together will make a successful and growing company.
Our success as a company is based on excellent internal educational processes, whose focus in recent years is on personal skills and their development. For which as a professional in the field of human resources, I can say that besides the fact that here we create experts to work with the latest Microsoft Dynamics technologies, we also create great communicators and wonderful personalities, with whom it is a pleasure to work with.
