Highlighted Workplace Resource

Blueprints for Success—Organizations are continually seeking new ways to improve governance, encourage ethical behavior, and facilitate productive workplaces that are more efficient. Employees seek workplaces that likewise evidence high ethical standards and fair treatment and provide safe avenues to share good ideas, facilitate workplace problems and guide them on surfacing problems to management. We believe that Ombudsman programs can be ideal mechanisms for this in all sectors, organizations and governments. The Blueprints manual guides those interested in establishing organizational ombudsman programs.
