Maureen McGirr, Vice President, Office of Ethics, Merck, discussed ethics, culture and values and their impact on today's organizations during her keynote address to Argyle's CLO membership at the 2017 Chief Legal Officer Leadership Forum in Washington D.C. on June 20.
"It’s a great feeling working for a company that not only says that people are the most important assets, but actually lives it and breathes it and empowers them. When you empower employees, you let them tell you who are the star performers, who deserves more reward and recognition for their contributions. If I were to give management one piece of advice in this regard, it would be to let your employees own this and let them decide. Don’t try to push this down from the top."
Sustainable engagement continues to be a high priority for Human Capital executives in 2013.
