    HR professionals know that an ethical workplace establishes a solid foundation for organizational behavior, ensures the legality and enforcement of corporate policies, and supports company growth and reputation. Does it surprise you then that a recent survey found that 49% of employees observed some type of ethical misconduct in the workplace?

    To help us explore this issue, this workshop will:

    • Touch on legal requirements for Ethics and Code of Conduct Training including, the Sarbanes-Oxley Act, Federal Sentencing Guidelines Amendments, and Federal Acquisition Regulations.
    • Offer tips on how to implement ethical guidelines and policies in your organization.
    • Debunk popular myths about ethics and look at what makes people behave unethically at work.
    • Provide several tools to help identify and resolve typical ethical dilemmas that face many HR professionals.  These tools can also be adapted to assist you in taking your managers (from supervisor to C level) through the decision making steps to support ethically based decisions.
