Appropriate efficiency: In business, there is integrity and there is the lack of integrity. Integrity leads to appropriate efficiency.
When a company is appropriately efficient, employees are skilled at what they do, apply their skills appropriately, and efficiently get tasks completed. Also, such companies have the appropriate equipment for a task, the equipment is legal and well maintained, and the operators are highly skilled and appropriately efficient operating this equipment. You are always - no exceptions - better off working with and for individuals with high integrity versus those who lack it. Doing so teams you with a winner with winning ways.
If you've worked in the construction industry, you've heard the statement "It's all about efficiency." When these words are spoken by someone with integrity, it conveys the message that the schedule, scope, and budget are based on appropriate efficiency. When spoken by someone who lacks integrity, it may imply to do whatever it takes to make a profit. Direction that lacks integrity may put employee's, customers, and the general public at risk. Injury and death of anyone unaware may be risked due to such manipulative behavior to save or make money inappropriately using gullible, ignorant, or participating employees. Choose integrity.
