Other - Ethics
Level of Presentation: All: Suitable for a broad audience
What are ethical guidelines and how do they apply to you in your professional field? Every day you face decisions that have ethical implications. While the welfare and safety of the public are everyone's primary concerns, time, personal and resource pressures can often challenge these commitments. Taking a pro-active approach to workplace ethics is the best course of action to mitigate this risk, avoid legal problems, and build a working atmosphere of integrity, trust and purpose. In this interactive online course, we will explore how to develop a strong and sustainable set of workplace ethics and guidelines designed to mitigate ethics creep, avoid legal implications, and build a solid, ethical foundation for a healthy workplace culture. We will explore common ethical topics and challenges and will detail the best practices when faced with thought provoking situations. We will also present the differences between a Code of Conduct and a Code of Ethics and how they can affect each professional differently. In this course, we will explore the challenge of workplace ethics and how to take a proactive stance, how to develop an effective and sustainable set of guidelines for organization, the difference between a Code of Conduct and a Code of Ethics, and best practices in dealing with ethically challenging situations.
