ETHICS AND COMPLIANCE WORKSHOP

 

Ethics are the heart of any strong organization. Whether you’re an international organization or a small-scale organization, studies have consistently found that ethical decision-making fosters employee morale, boosts brand reputation, encourages loyalty in customers and employees, and improves your bottom line. Ethics is more than the right thing to do; it is the smart thing to do. And in this day and age of eroded public trust, ethics are more important than ever. Reinforcing ethical principles and educating employees about compliance with the law are ongoing and important responsibilities .An organization is only as ethical as its officers, managers and employees. Ethics and compliance training is helpful for encouraging appropriate behaviors, setting expectations, demonstrating the organizations commitment and informing employee of laws or regulatory principles that may not be common knowledge. 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 higher than those without a similar commitment. Conversely, a bad reputation can ruin a business- ethics and compliance training is how an organization can avoid that.
