Is integrity, then, more of an issue for managers to deal with?
I hear that a lot – that only colleagues with budgetary or management responsibility need to think about integrity. In the end, though, each and every one of us can get into situations where personal integrity is required, whether we work on the line, in a workshop, or in the office. It is also a question of integrity when an employee in production enters the number of reject parts into a list at the end of his shift and asks himself, am I entering the correct number and being honest, or am I embellishing the truth? We can all answer this question for ourselves. We have provided a self-test for this purpose in the code of conduct. In case of doubt, the test can help to decide which path is the right one.
