Ethics@work is an interactive online course designed to educate directors, managers and employees at all levels of your organisation on the importance of doing their jobs in a responsible and ethical manner.

Ethics@work is aimed at all organisations who care about ethical conduct. 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, enabling you to avoid prosecution, lengthy investigations and reputational damage. The critical challenge is how to embed ethical values within your company's culture.

Ethics@work brings to life a company's code of ethical business conduct and trains staff on important ethical and legal issues including:

  • bribery and corruption
  • fraud
  • conflict of interest
  • environmental
  • health and safety
  • employment (harassment, discrimination)

The objectives of Ethics@work is to create a deeper culture of ethical behaviour by:

  • communicating your organisation's ethics policy or code of conduct.
  • demonstrating your organisation's commitment to complying with ethics and laws against bribery, corruption and cartels.
  • raising awareness of common ethical issues applicable to your organisation's activities.
  • helping the workforce understand the importance of making considered ethical judgements, in particular, avoiding the giving or receiving of bribes.
  • revealing the consequences of inappropriate behaviour.
  • explaining your organisation's policy for reporting inappropriate behaviour.
