To bolster productivity and a more engaged workplace, leaders need to foster a transparent and open environment where employees feel like they are on the inside track, according to the Deloitte 2008 Ethics & Workplace survey.

"... This year's survey also reveals that there is a strong relationship between greater openness and transparency by leadership and ethical behavior at work. In fact, 84 percent of respondents agree that openness by leadership contributes to a more ethical workplace culture. Moreover, 68 percent said it would create a more values-based organization. ..."
