This Ethics for Employees online training course will guide employees through business ethics. This course will encourage you to reflect on the ethical questions we all face and give you a process for arriving at good ethical decisions, explain the importance of doing business ethically, identify the ethical issues, outline ethical decision making and recognize ethical responsibilities.
A business without ethics is a business at risk. Companies face multi-million-dollar fines, criminal prosecutions, and possible bankruptcy for wrongdoing, and usually behind the headlines is the story of someone who made the wrong decision, didn't report suspected wrongdoing, or failed to recognize an ethical dilemma. Employees are often expected to make decisions, sometimes acting alone or out in the field, with very few resources to help. It is important that we understand what 'acting ethically' in the workplace means, and know how to make good decisions when there is no rulebook to help.
