Compliance into the Weeds is the only weekly podcast which takes a deep dive into a compliance related topic, literally going into the weeds to more fully explore a subject. In this episode, Matt Kelly  and I go into the weeds to explore the actions by Delta CEO in not going to a meeting at the White House because of previously scheduled vacation plans. Is this modeling of corporate values useful to improve employee morale?

Some of the highlights include:

  • Why did Delta CEO Ed Bastain ditch a White House meeting?
  • Does a CEO cancelling a meeting to go on previously scheduled vacation model your corporate values?
  • If a CEO will not attend a meeting what does that say about a company?
  • Does the CEO’s help or hurt employee morale?
  • How was Delta accountable in its ferrying of stranded 5thgraders to DC?
  • How has Lowe’s damaged employee trust?
