Integrity is a mirror that reveals the truth about a corporation. Corporate reports, filings, and stakeholder communications may say one thing, when in reality the corporation is doing something else. Integrity is violated when corporate policies and procedures are thrown out the window. For a corporation to have integrity, it must have an ethical environment with employees and business partners willing to follow and enforce corporate culture, policies and procedures. Values and ethics define an organization. They are either formally defined and managed, or are left to be defined by a variety of pressures and influences.
