Yesterday we linked to an article about ending employee policies that communicate distrust:

We all need some structure, but human beings are human beings regardless of education or status, and I happen to believe most are trustworthy and want to do their best for their employer. If you don’t believe that about your employees, perhaps it’s time to review your recruiting and hiring practices rather than putting into place burdensome procedures, fines and penalties that simply convey, at the end of the day: “We don’t trust you.” And distrust breeds distrust. Trust breeds trust.

What do you think of this? How have you seen trust encouraged rather than discouraged in the workplace?
