Are we doing enough about behavior?

Mike Jacka has written from the heart in his latest blog post. Click on this to access it.

I encourage all of you to read it, think about it, and then answer these questions:

  1. Are you comfortable with the culture within your organization – how people behave towards others? Consider not only how women are treated, but those who are “different” in any way (gays, people of color, those who observe a different faith, etc).
  2. Are you comfortable with what is being done about it?
  3. Are you comfortable with what you are doing about it?
  4. What else should you, management, or internal audit do about it?

I have written about culture as having many facets. Auditing culture is not just about ethics, or risk-taking. It’s about behavior and what drives it.

Are we, as individuals (especially when we are in a position of authority, such as any member of internal audit) doing enough?

Well done, Mike!

Now it’s up to the rest of us to act.
