An Everlasting Worldview

Many universities and trainers teach business ethics from a perspective called "moral relativism." This basically means they don't believe in objective truth so whatever you deem as right is good enough.
As an employer it's important to remember that everyone has their own worldview. If they're self absorbed, they'll likely do what benefits them most. If they make decisions based on family values, you may discover too late that they were raised by mobsters.
The only objective truth that is time tested and will help you standardize your company values is the Word of God. Psalm 119:152 teaches, "Long ago I learned from your statutes that you established them to last forever."
If you desire to have an ethical workplace I recommend you establish a worldview that lasts forever.
