Ethics in the Workplace Online Training

Ethics in the Workplace Online Training

Ethics are the moral principles that guide our behavior. Most organizations will have their own ethics policy that employees should use to guide their professional conduct.

Ethics are open to interpretation and each company’s policy will be unique but usually center around certain themes. These include how employees conduct themselves inside and outside of the workplace, the way in which you do business, the companies you do business with and the way the company supports employees in certain circumstances. It can also include guidance on sexual harassment, social media usage, discrimination and other ethical issues.

Our ethics training helps employees understand what is and is not acceptable ethically and how employees should go about making ethical decisions that involve the company. We use real-world situations to help employees apply their decision making to ethical dilemmas.
