The 9 Dimensions of our Integrity Test

The Dimensions of Integrity used in this integrity test is based on provision by Chemuturi Consultants, India.

Integrity of Commitment

In organizational life, there will be many a situation wherein, the individual commitments conflict with those of the organization. It is necessary for the organization that the individual undertakes organizational commitments as his own. Otherwise, he will fail the organization by failing to meet the organizational commitments. This also indicates the person’s propensity to indulge in actions – overtly or covertly – that cause – visible or invisible – damage to the interests of the organization. Failure or breakdown of any other dimension of Integrity will not have any impact, if the person has a strong Integrity of Commitment.

Integrity against Inducements / Temptation / Vice

inducements are part of organizational life. It is common to take it is easy when the boss is away! Inducements could come from vendors, competitors, and colleagues for a variety of reasons. While it certainly is not easy to resist temptation, the threshold level of succumbing to temptation is significant. Some societies frown upon touching alcohol but now touching alcohol is not a taboo but getting drunk still is.

Integrity against Lust

it is said that most wars are caused by either wine, or the opposite sex. Every human being is lustful – it is referred to as libido when it is healthy. While libido is necessary for performance, lust digresses the person from his commitments and makes him do undesirable things. A person with lust is known to do unimaginable things – things he otherwise wouldn’t do. Such person becomes easily manipulatable. A fine example is Samson in Samson and Delilah. It is significant to know the role played by lust in a person’s life.

Integrity against Greed

greed is wanting more than necessity. Presence of greed in a person causes sell-out – of info, secrets etc. A good example is that of people endorsing products which they do not use and do not know, first hand or from independent sources. The efficacy of claims they are making to millions of people is nil – these are the people who are low in this dimension of Integrity.

Integrity of Respect

for rights and property of others – Respect for other’s rights and property refrains from taking anything that doesn’t rightfully belong to him. What constitutes property – office time, stationery, ideas developed in the organizations (intellectual property), phone usage and so on. Rights start from protection of trust placed in the person, right to privacy, right to expect service, right to expect safekeeping, right to expect performance of duties and so on.

Integrity towards Facts

we are not talking of universal truths here. It is rather about the propensity of the employee to tell lies. Employees tell lies all the time. Some are harmless – such as the reason for not coming into office on a day. But when it comes to protecting an earring colleague, it may become intolerable to the organization depending on the gravity of the error.

Transactional Integrity

there are many occasions when the employees get stressed out during work – sometimes caused by the customer (internal or external). It is important that the employee maintains transactional Integrity in the face of provocation. It is easy for employees to damage a transaction other than the desired one, either due to provocation or due to mischief or due to malice.

Legal Integrity

this becomes apparent when the ethics of the employee conflict with the laws – of the organization. A good example is that of dress code – some religions prescribe a strict dress code and it may conflict with organizational dress code or behavior code. It can create conflict within the person and make that person cause damage.

Secular Integrity

this is becoming increasingly recognized as a major source of anti-social actions. Religion has time again proved to be a bigger inducement compared to other inducements like money, power and self.
