Governance & Ethics – Developing an Ethical Corporate Culture – 0.5 day

Corporations can no longer afford to allow their employees to misinterpret how their employer wants them to act.  Corporate reputation is too important to be left to chance.  Creating a guiding corporate culture provides employees with the understanding of how they should behave that can reduce risks and ensure that the right touchstones are considered before actions are taken.  Creating and maintaining an ethical corporate culture is complex but worthwhile.  Sharing the instructor’s 25 years of experience will give participants a significant competitive advantage.
