The success of ASH is dependent on the trust and confidence we earn from our employees, contractors, and attendees. We gain credibility by adhering to our commitments, displaying honesty and integrity, and reaching organization goals solely through honorable conduct. It is easy to say what we must do, but the proof is in our actions. Ultimately, we will be judged on what we do.
For our employees and contractors, when considering any action, it is wise to ask:
- Will this build trust and credibility for ASH?
- Will it help create an environment in which ASH and its attendees can succeed over the long term?
- Is the commitment I am making one I can follow through with?
The only way we will maximize trust and credibility between one another and our attendees is by answering “yes” to those questions and by working every day to build our trust and credibility.
Respect for the Individual
We all deserve to work in an environment where we are treated with dignity and respect. ASH is committed to creating such an environment because it brings out the full potential in each of us, which, in turn, contributes directly to ASH and its attendees’ success. We cannot afford to let anyone’s talents go to waste.
ASH Productions is an Equal Employment Opportunity employer and is committed to providing a workplace that is free of discrimination of all types and from abusive, offensive or harassing behavior. ASH does not discriminate on the basis of race, color, national origin, religion, gender, age, veteran status, political affiliation, sexual orientation, sexual identity, marital status or disability (in compliance with the Americans with Disabilities Act) with respect to employment opportunities. ASH celebrates diversity and commits to creating an inclusive environment for all employees and 1099 contractors. The company’s goal is to remove barriers to employment that are faced by racial minorities and encourage applicants of all genders, abilities, ethnic, socio-economic, religious, and educational backgrounds. ASH believes that a team with a variety of perspectives and skills is critical to our growth as an organization, and we seek to recruit, develop and retain the most talented people from a diverse candidate pool. Any employee who feels harassed or discriminated against should report the incident to their manager or to human resources.
We all deserve to work in an environment where we are treated with dignity and respect.
Set The Tone At The Top
At ASH everyone should feel comfortable to speak their mind, particularly with respect to ethics concerns. We have a responsibility to create an open and supportive environment where all feel comfortable raising such questions. We all benefit tremendously when everyone exercises their power to prevent mistakes or wrongdoing by asking the right questions at the right times.
We also have the added responsibility for demonstrating, through their actions, the importance of the policies and best practices we set forth. In any business, ethical behavior does not simply happen; it is the product of clear and direct communication of behavioral expectations, modeled from the top and demonstrated by example. Again, ultimately, our actions are what matters.
To make our policies work, we must be responsible for promptly addressing ethical questions or concerns raised by employees and contractors and for taking the appropriate steps to deal with such issues. Managers should not consider ethics concerns as threats or challenges to their authority, but rather as another encouraged form of business communication. At ASH, we want the ethics dialogue to become a natural part of daily work.
