“Treat everyone fairly, not equally.”
- Minh Tan
Employees who feel fairly treated are better performers, helpful to colleagues, more committed to their workgroups and the organization, and less likely to steal or be rude to others.
Four Aspects of Fairness:
1. Distributive fairness: Making sure that employees are equitably rewarded for their contributions.
2. Transparent and clear procedures: Ensure decisions are consistently applied across people and situations and are based on accurate information, suppressing bias in the decision process, and providing opportunities for employees to voice concerns.
3. Informational fairness: explain the logic behind decisions in a timely manner.
4. Interpersonally fair: Treat everyone with dignity and respect.
