Hello friend,
These are issues that relate to "VALUES" of an organization. It is necessary that top management discusses and releases a value statement which describes what should be behavior of people. The values statement should be finalized through involvement of as many employees as possible. This will then be "SHARED VALUES"
If "developing trust" is accepted as a shared value - and rumours and gossip will have no place in the organization.
There is a need to of right ROLE MODELING - the leaders/seniors at all levels should demonstrate the value - so that all others will follow. Therefore Rumours and Gossips should be strictly avoided by seniors.
When these values get imbibed in all people there will be a culture for efficiency and productivity. Leadership along with HR should focus on imbibing the values for sustainable grwoth of the company.
