transparency in business

“A lack of transparency results in distrust and a deep sense of insecurity.” – Dalai Lama

We are all familiar with the term, “Honesty is the best policy.” It is a term we should all live by. Here at Your Employment Solutions we abide by that principle both with our clients and employees by embracing the concept of transparency.

If someone can’t be transparent, they can’t be trusted and that just makes for a bad business.

There are many areas we all need to exercise “transparency” in. I’d like to touch on a just a few.

TRANSPARENCY IN INFORMATION

The last thing you want to happen is that you get into something thinking you know what that something is and have it turn out to be the complete opposite. You can always count on YES to deliver the proper information pertaining to each job. We pride ourselves on that. And if, for some reason, we don’t have the answers we will be more than happy to figure them out.

When dealing with clients we make sure to let them know that what you see is what you get. Nobody wants to hype up their company and then not deliver on promises.

TRANSPARENCY IN COMMITMENT

Nobody should make a commitment with the intent to not follow through. A commitment is a more of a obligation. Which is why at Your Employment Solutions we intend to follow through to the end, both in reward and punishment.

In life, we are all committed in some way — whether it be in marriage, on a job — or even in the promises we make to friends. There is no bigger disappointment than when you break a commitment. So before you make a commitment think carefully on how dedicated you will be to follow through.

Here is a quote given by Lebron James on commitment:

“Commitment is a big part of what I am and what I believe. How committed are you to winning? How committed are you to being a good friend? To being trustworthy? To being successful? How committed are you to being a good father, good teammate, a good role model? There’s that moment every morning when you look in the mirror: Are you committed, or are you not?”

 

TRANSPARENCY IN YOURSELF

Be transparent in who you are. No relationship should be based on a lie.

If you want to be trusted you must be real on who you are. Lying will only lead to distrust. Whether you speak to Tyler, Kenneth, Riley, myself or any other employee at YES you are guaranteed to be given straight answers every time.

If a job is difficult we will let you know.

If we feel you may not be qualified for the position we will tell you. In turn, we expect nothing less from our employees. Even in your own lives you need to be transparent because nobody wants to deal with someone that is known for lying.

“Confidence…thrives on honesty, on honor, on the sacredness of obligations, on faithful protection and on unselfish performance. Without them it cannot live.” – Franklin D. Roosevelt

 
Remember, honesty truly is the best policy. The way I see it, people who are transparent are 100% more successful than those who are not.
