Management of HR Resources

As with other public services, HR management provides many entry points to raise the ethical standards of health professionals. Expectations for ethical behaviours are typically communicated to staff via codes of conduct and training programmes. But ethical behaviour can also be influenced by mainstreaming ethical values in HR processes. This can include transparent and merit-based recruitment that screens candidates for ethical behaviour, adequate and fair compensation systems, performance appraisals that consider not only technical and team factors but also ethical standards, on-going personnel development and career management that rewards ethics, restrictions to external activities and outside interests of staff to prevent conflicts of interests and effective disciplinary policies in the event of wrongdoing.[1]
