Trust and accountability among employees are usually successful. This can only take place when top management sets the example and then builds that example into every section and unit of the nursing home. Without trust in the workplace, there will be no communication and teamwork. An environment of trust is created only when it is evident that both parties will be safe and we have each other’s best interests in mind. To ensure that trust and accountability within a team is maintained avoid acting and speaking inconsistently. Seeking personal rather than shared gain, Withholding information. Telling lies or half-truths and being closed mined.
