Workplace Accountability System

The Business of Accountability™ provides leaders with a Workplace Accountability System for executing business strategy. Companies, leadership, and employees benefit from implementing a sustainable system for:

  • Aligning goals and objectives
  • Setting quality standards
  • Communicating clear expectations
  • Removing obstacles that impede success
  • Producing high quality, high impact work products
  • Developing high performance teams

If you manage people, lead a team, or hold a position that requires you to achieve results through others, a workplace accountability system can help and this blog is for you! Blog content covers topics associated with accountability including trust, performance management, employee engagement, behavior styles, productivity, goals, and getting results.

People, especially exemplary performers, thrive in an environment where expectations are high and people are held accountable for results. So, it makes sense to implement a sustainable workplace accountability system and create a high performance environment. Organizations benefit from increased productivity, decreased turnover, and enhanced employee engagement when they develop a culture of accountability that benefits both employees and managers.

What is accountability?

Accountability and responsibility are often used synonymously, but I think of it like this. We have many responsibilities, but typically we are “held to account” for a few that have consequences, either positive or negative.

n. The state of being accountable or answerable; responsibility for the fulfillment of obligations; liability to account for conduct, the fact or condition of being accountable.

Accountability promotes trust, transparency, and innovation.
