Technology, scientific/weather occurrences, medical or health issues are all areas that can stir the emotions of our global communities more than others. Some of our more recent concerns include Duke Energy as more power outages take place, and there is some concern about the emission of bad gases, or if the release of coal ash could be a cause to some citizens’ health problems. As dependent as the public is to Duke Energy’s business, the last thing anyone would want is for Duke Energy to be hit with serious claims or negative actions taken.
As companies grow and become a major player in any community or region, it is critical for that company’s leaders to take responsibility for all processes, including the hiring of qualified, competent employees, and to be sure that no changes should be rushed but to be clear about what is expected of them. Good training and refraining from taking short-cuts are both priorities.
Other areas that require caution and close observation include anything that involves the area’s air, water, food supply, etc, Of course, these cautionary areas indirectly include the medical and health industries. It is so important that all high priority areas are maintained. Before any company or industry is scrutinized unfairly, allow sufficient time for experts to review and examine an organization’s maintaining a healthy work environment.
Changes can be processed promptly once all are sure that they will be and act responsibly. The key word during these many transitions is “responsible”, and to be responsible will lead your organization to a successful future.
