Ethical Insights

Focusing on real world applications of the HouseRules methodology for optimising business policies, procedures, processes and company culture.

The HouseRules examines a business through three critical lenses:


The guidelines that reflect legal, regulatory and values-based requirements. We review existing policies and procedures to identify gaps or areas of improvement. The goal is to craft “living” documents that can evolve with industry best practices.

Internal Community

How leadership teams build a collaborative, interdependent culture focused on the company’s purpose. Together we facilitate building trust, effective communication flows, and meaningful employee engagement.


Ensuring the balance of operations aligns with stated values to build integrity and accountability at all levels. This impacts everything from company policies to vendor relationships and public transparency.

The following insights provide real examples of how the HouseRules methodology has supported businesses determined to offer a difference from the norm:

  • review and refine their rulebooks
  • to reduce risk,
  • improve efficiency, and
  • stay competitive.

Here the case studies are from across industries and perspectives leveraging decades of cross-industry experience.

You’ll get insights on optimising policies around the work environment and flexibility, updating hiring practices to attract top talent, ideas for innovating stale corporate cultures, and other emerging issues at the intersection of business operations, ethics and human relationships.
