Business Ethics & Integrity

Where does our sense of what is morally right and wrong come from? And how does this relate to business?

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

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

Our Business Ethics & Integrity Course is designed to raise employee awareness and understanding of business ethics and integrity. This includes responding to practical examples that involve ethical dilemmas.

Audience: All staff  |  Duration: 45 minutes  |  Format: E-learning module
