This webinar introduces the keys to creating an ethical culture, including the importance of ethical leadership, the necessity of communicating organizational values, policies and practices, and how employees use decision-making techniques to resolve ethical dilemmas.
Research concludes that good ethics is good business. Organizations perceived as ethical demonstrate improvements in quality, customer service, employee relations, vendor relations, regulatory relations and public perception. All of which can impact the bottom line. The best way to inspire ethical employee behavior is to create an organizational culture that encourages and supports integrity.
Why you should attend
: Employee misconduct can cost corporations their hard won reputations, millions of dollars in fines and legal fees, and in the cases of Enron and Worldcom, their existence. Politicians and companies respond to ethical scandals by writing new laws and policies to which they expect employees comply. But compliance is not enough to ensure that employees do the right thing. Unless organizations create an ethical culture they remain vulnerable to employee wrongdoing.
