“The Employee Code and training has been very helpful. It has given our administrators an objective and consistent manner for managing our employees and determining appropriate consequences when the code has been violated.”

“Upslope helped us develop an Employee Code of Conduct that promotes to the staff and the community our ethical commitment to maintain a safe and supportive work environment throughout our district. Their model brought a district team together to collaboratively develop our Employee Code of Conduct to ensure that all behavior modification is fairly, reasonably, thoughtfully, and consistently applied. This has provided our staff with a feeling of confidence in how they will be treated.”
