Business Ethics & Integrity Course

To ensure that their employees meet the high standards and expectations of customers, suppliers and stakeholders, each company has a set of values at the root of all they do.

These form the basis of a Code of Ethics, which suggests standards of behaviour and best practices that can be referred to when facing new or challenging situations.

Our Business Ethics & Integrity Course is designed to raise employee awareness and understanding. It includes practical examples to respond to involving real-world ethical dilemmas.
