Forbes, "The Crisis of Integrity in Public Life"

Fostering cultures of integrity means putting structures in place to ensure that not only are cheating, corruption, and bullying discouraged, but that no employee, regardless of position, is ever afraid to speak up and take action. It’s smart business too, by the way. Ethics can be a competitive advantage, serving as a strong differentiator in a crowded marketplace, as well as helping to attract top talent. We owe it to our companies, our employees, our customers and ultimately to ourselves to help ensure that we do not protect bullies from the consequences of their actions. It requires active effort. But it is not beyond us. There may be few things simpler.
