The topic of ethics has seemed to permeate every aspect of today's business operations, including occupying a significant spot in today's business and professional curriculum. Yet, with all the discussion and awareness on the topic, why is it that significant ethical dilemmas and incidents continue to impact our daily lives?
We often get caught between our independent ethical duty, the legal or compliance viewpoint of an issue and managements concerns surrounding attention and reputation. This webinar delves into understanding the concepts behind ethics and utilize that understanding to evaluate scenario issues that may impact your workplace. We take a practical look at the variables involved in creating and maintaining an ethical culture and identifying how internal audit can impact those variables. We also evaluate the evolving role of technology and ethics, and how social media has impacted the view of ethical behavior.

Very good. The instructor really packed in great examples and took a deep look at ethics in a 2 hour timeframe. I liked the practical applications for me as an HR leader.
