Online Ethics and Compliance Training Course
Ethics and Compliance Essentials
Reinforcing ethical principles and educating employees about compliance with the law are ongoing and important responsibilities. An organization is only as ethical and compliant as its officers, managers and employees. Ethics training is helpful for encouraging appropriate behavior, setting expectations, demonstrating the organization's commitment, and informing employees of laws or regulatory principles that may not be common knowledge.
Integrity and scruples not only keep us out of court and out of prison, but they are good for business. One study found that companies making "an explicit commitment to doing business ethically" have produced profit/turnover ratios at 18% higher than those without a similar commitment. Conversely, a bad reputation can ruin a business.
