It is easy to say what we must do, but the proof is in our actions. Ultimately, we will be judged on what we do.
But, please be aware that we will not tolerate abuse or attacks against our writers or readers.
Ethics is important to us. We all deserve to work in an environment where we are treated with dignity and respect. TheCultureCrossing.com is committed to creating such an environment. Because it brings out the full potential in each of us, which, in turn, contributes directly to our business success. We cannot afford to let anyone’s talents go to waste.
