Everyday Ethics

Class Summary

Today, more than ever before, organizations are under tight scrutiny and being held to higher standards of behavior. It is critical that employees be well versed in ethics and ethical behavior. Understanding and practicing proven ethical decision-making techniques will not only reduce the organization’s risk of scandals and lawsuits, it will also improve morale and instill a sense of pride.

This program is also available as an organization-wide initiative that can be rolled out quickly to all employees.  As part of the initiative we will work with you to develop or refine your organization’s code of conduct, help surface potential problems, and make recommendations for keeping ethics awareness alive after the initial training.
