ethics training program diagramming example photoEthics Management: Professionalism in the Workplace is a course covering the key elements of Ethics training and professionalism in the workplace.  Our ethics training program will help you develop your ability to recognize and promote ethical decisions in the workplace, and identify ethical and unethical actions and behaviors.

Being a professional means acting ethically, demonstrating integrity, treating everyone with dignity and respect, and owning up to mistakes.  Ethics training for employees and supervisors can have a  significant positive impact on employee behavior.

Our decisions have long-lasting effects.  Accepting gifts from a vendor or dating an employee who reports to you may seem innocent, but ethically they represent conflicts of interest.

Take a look at the following examples of unethical behavior:

  • Time theft: Violating the organization’s internet, computer, or social media usage policy; conducting personal business on company time.
  • Dishonesty: Gossiping; spreading rumors; using false advertising to lure in potential customers.
  • Attendance: Chronic tardiness; absenteeism.
  • Abusive conduct: Abusive behavior; bullying; coercion; threatening an employee for complaining about working conditions.
  • Denial: Ignoring safety mandates; ignoring a potentially harmful problem at work; withholding information.

Your organization’s management and policies should guide employee actions to ensure employees at all levels are educated on what is expected of them while representing the company.  This is where a professional ethics training program can help.

Characteristic of ethical behavior:

  • Consistently acting with good values
  • Demonstrating respect through dignity, diversity, and equality
  • Guiding your actions with principles of confidentiality, honesty, and transparency in business and in conduct toward others

The primary causes of unethical workplace behavior:

  • Pressure to meet unrealistic goals and deadlines
  • Increase in market competition
  • Economic greed
  • Pressure to earn profits from Stakeholders
  • Lack of management support

Sarbanes-Oxley Act of 2002

Sarbanes-Oxley (SOX) is a federal law that established comprehensive auditing and financial regulations for public companies to enhance corporate responsibility, improve financial disclosures, and combat accounting fraud.  Sarbanes-Oxley was enacted in response to fraudulent financial practices and accounting scandals involving U.S. businesses, such as Enron.

Many provisions also apply to privately held companies, such as the willful destruction of evidence to impede a federal investigation.

Included in Section 406 of the Sarbanes-Oxley Act of 2002 was the SOX Code of Ethics, in which public companies must disclose the fundamental values by which they operate.  Corporate officers and executives of publicly held companies are now required to abide by the SOX Code of Ethics, which covers conflicts of interest, honest and ethical conduct, disclosure of information, compliance, reporting, confidentiality, retaliation, and other key ethical areas, such as the establishment of a code of ethics.  Our Ethics training course for supervisors covers the Sarbanes-Oxley Act of 2002 and gives context to the importance of workplace ethics.
