Deborah Haliczer

Deborah Haliczer, director of employee relations, is quoted in an article in the September 2007 issue of HR Magazine.

The article, “Supporting Ethical Employees,” is about training employees to act ethically. Haliczer is quoted in regard to the annual computer-based, state-mandated ethics training.

“The training has raised awareness about (employees’) personal behaviors,” Haliczer says, citing an example: “They can’t use departmental fax machines to fax notices about selling a house or having a garage sale.”

Jean Thilmany’s HR Magazine article also paraphrases Haliczer as saying that “training can start a useful dialogue about right and wrong behavior that employees could remember when murky situations arise.”
