Legal developments in recent years have made proactive business ethics and code of conduct training a necessity. The Federal Sentencing Guidelines (FSGs) and various statutes (e.g. SOX, FAR) require frequent and comprehensive training on workplace ethics and ethical business conduct. Just having a Code of Conduct is NOT enough!
Our highly customizable online courses explain the core concepts of business ethics and allows organizations to present and highlight their Codes of Ethics and/or Business Conduct. In the code of conduct training, employees are presented with customizable scenarios that require them to apply “the code” and determine the “right” course of action, fostering understanding of ethical decision making and knowledge of specific standards of conduct.
