If coworkers are helping to curb behavior that is inconsistent with your company’s values, they could be saving the organization from legal, financial or reputational trouble
Ottawa, ON (PRWEB) June 13, 2013
“In many organizations, ethics and values training is just a review and sign-off, conducted in half an hour, often online,” says Christopher Bauer, ethics expert, author and psychologist. “But that isn’t enough to ensure employees make the right decisions when the time comes. When people know what’s expected, and that is trained and consistently reinforced, you get employees at all levels who are able to spot when other employees or supervisors are getting off track. If coworkers are helping to curb behavior that is inconsistent with your company’s values, they could be saving the organization from legal, financial or reputational trouble,” he says.
“Ethics and values training is so important for the health of an organization and to keep it out of legal trouble,” says Joe Gerard, Vice-President, Marketing and Sales at i-Sight. “It’s a webinar topic we’ve wanted to offer for a long time, so we’re really pleased to have Chris Bauer onboard for it. He’s a well-known speaker on ethics and has 25 years of experience in understanding how and why people make the choices they do. I think webinar attendees will appreciate his speaking style and his ability to make ethics both interesting and funny, without diluting the importance of the topic.”
In the webinar, entitled Professional Ethics: How to Recognize and Reduce Risk, Bauer will discuss:
- How to spot the often-overlooked and ignored ‘red flags’ for ethics risks yourself, your coworkers and your employees
- How to articulate four values that are essential to creating and maintaining a culture of both personal and organizational ethics
- The strategic and financial value of developing and maintaining effective ethics and values training for an organization
This webinar has been submitted for CPE credit from HRCI and can be submitted for CPE credit at other institutions, depending on their requirements. In addition to continuing education credits, attendees also get valuable ethics training and professional skills development.
