Here is the sequence of actions to take to improve honesty, integrity and competence in your workplace:

Order "The Way to Happiness" booklets from The Way to Happiness Foundation. While at their web site, be sure to order the free DVD and Information Kit.

Once you have received "The Way to Happiness" booklets, pass them out to your employees.

Include the booklet in employee orientation materials for new staff.

If you have supervisors or managerial staff, have them read and apply it to the staff in their areas.

Place additional copies of the booklet in lunch rooms and/or employee lounges. Employees appreciate easy access to extra copies for family and friends.

Play "The Way to Happiness" public service announcements in employee lounges and lunchrooms. These are on the DVD you requested.

Adopt "The Way to Happiness" as part of your company's Code of Ethics. Include a company directive to this effect.

Inform the employees of the company at a staff meeting that they can participate in a monthly awards program based on the principles of "The Way to Happiness." To qualify for the award, they need to read the book and apply it.

Choose a principle from "The Way to Happiness" that the employee award will be based on that month, such as "Be Competent."

Choose the employee who best demonstrated that principle during that month and let that person's manager know that his employee will be presented with the award.

Inform the staff of the time, date and location that the award will be given to the employee. Get a certificate or plaque made up with "The Way to Happiness" principle that applies. Hold your award presentation and give the employee a hardcover edition of "The Way to Happiness" as well. Display the award in a prominent place where both staff and your customers can see it. This will create goodwill for the company both internally with employees and externally with customers.

Get feedback from the staff. We'd love to hear the results and any additional suggestions. If you have any questions or need assistance, e-mail us at tomclapp@employeetestingcenter.com or call us at 888-600-6095.
