DC SHRM March Education Program: Building an Ethical Organization

If you were to survey organizational leaders on the importance of ethics, you’d be hard pressed to find anyone who would not put “ethics” in their top 5 of essential values. Why is it then that reports of organizational scandals are as commonplace as videos of cats playing the piano on YouTube?

And when these scandals get into the public eye, it is often the head of HR who receives the mandate (aka chastisement) that, “We need more training on ethics!” Is it that simple? Do organizations just need more ethics training? Or are there other ways to enhance the culture of compliance and ethical behavior in a sustainable manner?

This session will outline the 5 essential elements that organizations can integrate in order to foster a more ethical culture in the organization. Through case studies and proven strategies for enhancing ethics throughout the organization, we will present solid strategies that, if implemented, can help keep your organization out of the negative news cycles.

Due to the interactive nature of this program and utilization of breakout rooms, this session will NOT be recorded. Live attendance is required.
