Online ethics training Online ethics training introduction

What is it?

Our interactive online ethics training course is designed to educate directors, managers and employees at all levels of your organisation on the importance of conducting their workplace activities in a responsible and ethical manner.

Who is it for?

Our online ethics e-learning training is aimed at all organisations who care about ethical conduct in the workplace.

Why is this important?

A failure to live up to high standards can damage your reputation, lead to lengthy investigations and could involve possible prosecution. A good reputation is a key part of a company's commercial success. In a recession, the risk of unethical and potentially illegal conduct increases. A code of ethical business conduct is the first step towards managing that risk, but the critical challenge is to embed ethical values within your company's culture.

Eversheds Sutherland developed with Compass an online ethics programme designed to embed their existing code of conduct into the business by delivering bespoke and interactive training. The training has been successfully rolled out to 3,000 officers and employees around the globe and has received overwhelmingly positive feedback from the business.

At Compass we aim to uphold the highest ethical values in everything we do and recognise the importance this has for our reputation. [Eversheds Sutherland] has allowed us to achieve this, embedding our Code of Ethics across the business. [It] is an effective way of ensuring our colleagues understand how to operate to the high ethical standards we expect of them"
