One possible result of the past few years’ corporate scandals? Business ethics are making a comeback, according to training expert Myron Curry, president of He bases his claim on the fact that training in business ethics is on the upswing.

“Over the past 18 months, we’ve seen a dramatic increase in the number of our customers who focus on business ethics and accountability training programs for managers and executives,” Curry says. “More and more companies and businesspeople now realize that ethics play as large a role in the public as they do the private and that you can’t check your ethics at the door when you enter the workplace.”

Employers who want to provide business-ethics, integrity and accountability training have a multitude of options., for instance, offers more than 10 programs focusing on those topics, including 50 Activities for Promoting Ethics within the Organization; Accountability That Works; and A.C.T. with Integrity.

This is an important first step for companies to take in ensuring ethics in their workplace.”
