Maintaining an ethical and legally compliant culture is essential to an organization’s long-term success.  Unethical and unlawful behavior can occur in any organization, but how quickly the organization responds can dictate whether the ethical culture is strengthened or whether the reputation and health of the organization are put at risk.

Resolving ethical issues requires advanced decision-making skills and keen moral sensibilities. Managers have a responsibility to respond promptly and effectively to ethics and compliance complaints in the workplace. However, they are often not equipped with the right training or tools to handle the difficult situations. To help effectively address and resolve ethical issues that arise in the workplace, this course introduces concepts for: ethical awareness, assessment, decision-making, and action.
