There are several ways in which we can promote industry in the aviation industry. In today’s article, we will be focusing on those ways, in which we can enhance honesty in the aviation industry. We all know that the aviation industry can’t operate optimally, if the employees in it are dishonest. The success of the industry depends to a great extent on the honesty of the employees. We have seen airlines go down due to employee dishonesty. So the question as to how we can promote honesty in the industry is a critical one. And without further ado, some of the ways in which we can promote honesty in the aviation industry include:
- By being careful at recruitment time: the objective here is to ensure that people who have a track record of being dishonest are not hired. So it is truly critical to undertake proper background checks.
- By training employees on the importance of honesty: the subject of honesty and its importance should be an integral part of the training that aviation industry employees are put through, before being deployed.
- By making honesty part of the employee appraisal: the goal here is to make the employees aware of the fact that their honesty levels would always be under review. And that their honesty would be one of the factors to be included in their annual appraisal. Thus, for instance, when an American Airlines employees logs into the airline’s employees’ portal, which is also known as the Newjetnet portal to check his appraisal, he would do so knowing one thing. He would do so knowing that his honesty would be one of the appraised qualities. And he would thus do so knowing that his honesty level would be one of the factors to be looked at, in determining whether to retain him, whether to promote him, whether to demote him… and so on. With this awareness, the employees are likely to strive for the highest levels of honesty.
