In Ethics Training for the Workplace, participants will learn...

  • List positive outcomes of living by an ethical code of conduct
  • Apply skills for working in an ethical manner
  • Practice supporting others in living by a code of conduct
  • Apply a general code of conduct to specific workplace scenarios
  • Communicate the organization’s ethics to others
  • Recognize the rights and responsibilities of whistleblowers

Imagine a world where everyone lived by the same code of ethics. We would all believe the same things were right and wrong; we’d all have the same hard-working gumption; we’d all trust each other implicitly, and we’d never have to reprimand others for their behavior.

This course discusses the importance of having a workplace code of ethics—a code of conduct that is expected and required of all employees. Participants will have the chance to evaluate their own ethical beliefs and discuss how to take a more ethical approach back to the workplace.
