We define organizational hypocrisy as a state where the professed values differ from demonstrated behaviors. Most of the time, such hypocrisy is not intentional or malicious. Rather, it is because we fail to define the standards by which the organization can assess and measure the application of its values. As a result, the employees of the organization hold their leaders and each other accountable to a diverse and sometimes conflicting set of behavioral standards.
CEEK helps organizations clarify these standards through an Intentional Culture Plan. And we offer the CEEK Hypocrisy Index™ to assess the current state of your organization. Via our survey, you will discover the degree to which you and your colleagues understand and live the organizational vision, mission, and values. More importantly, you will gauge the perceptions of your colleagues relative to the consistency by which the organizational values are demonstrated.
Our goal is to build awareness of the magnitude and impact of organizational hypocrisy, and to minimize both. Via CEEK’s Hypocrisy Index™, you can measure the level of perceived hypocrisy and correlate survey results over time to show the impact on employee engagement AND business results.
While CEEK works in collaboration with our clients to customize the Hypocrisy Index™ survey to the specific culture and values of any organization, we offer a generic version of the survey that is consistent with the values-based leadership and wise stewardship of natural, financial, and human resources sought by Conscious Organizations.

Contact us if you are interested in an organization-wide assessment. And if you seek to maximize the consistency between professed values and demonstrated behaviors, we can teach you how to develop your own Intentional Culture Plan. In doing so, you will minimize the degree of hypocrisy, engage and inspire your staff, and differentiate your organization in service to your clients, colleagues, and community.
