Ethical conduct by all employees is essential for a business to succeed and prosper. The main objective of this session is to create awareness of ethical issues in business and ensure that you always know the ethical course of action to take on the job. By the time this session is over, you should be able to recognize the importance of business ethics, understand the requirements of the law and our ethics policy, identify ethical problems on the job, and make ethical decisions.
Integrity and scruples not only keep us out of court and out of prison, but they are good for business. One study found that companies making "an explicit commitment to doing business ethically" have produced profit/turnover ratios at 18% higher than those without a similar commitment. Conversely, a bad reputation can ruin a business.
Who Should Attend
This course is designed for anyone interested in learning more about professional ethics.
The aim of this course is to provide the philosophical skills and knowledge necessary to identify and think critically about ethical questions, whether abstract (e.g., what makes an action wrong) or concrete (e.g., is it wrong to do X?).
