Ethics in the Organization – Leading Through People™, Module 15
Session Length: 4 hours | Target: All Staff Levels | Prerequisites: None | Delivery: taught live or webinar
In 1998 the federal government ruled that all companies, whether public or private, must provide their employees with ethics training. An organization’s standards of conduct and code of ethics are the tools that guide employees to do the right things in the workplace. How well a company communicates these areas goes a long way towards increased productivity and the living out of corporate values.
