Working with leaders to protect ethical standards, improve business performance and win employee engagement
Our approach to business ethics is informed by the latest industry research from the field of applied Ethics Research. We deliver greater clarity, workforce engagement and synergy with existing codes of ethics, codes of conduct, conflicts of interest and other compliance protocols for improved business performance. By so doing, employees better understand their ethical risks and responsibilities. Developing an ethical infrastructure enables leaders to nurture ethical, high performance workplace cultures and fight corruption.
We work with leaders to create inclusive workplace cultures where employees know the “why” behind their code of conduct; how to raise issues of concern; and how to protect integrity. Employee engagement enables greater acceptance of personal accountability and brings a greater sense of personal control. Our Ethical leadership workshops differentiate between leadership and ethical leadership to skill management in how to act as role models of ethical standards and principles and manage existing tensions between “how” business gets down and the volume of business done.
GLOBAL BUSINESS ETHICAL STANDARDS
The United Nations has adopted several resolutions drastically altering the expectations of corporations, the corporate cultures they encourage, and the manner in which business success is pursued. Many countries have followed suit and put tough new regulations in place to curb money laundering, bribery, corruption and fraud.
Ethics is no longer about policy framework or paper compliance programs. Its about the efforts made to ensure values and principles become “the why” employees do things in certain ways as part of the DNA of a workplace culture. Our initiatives are designed to help leaders integrate ethics into business strategy and build early warning systems of ethical issues before they emerge.
We work nationally and throughout Asia facilitating leading edge learning programs that are highly rated by participants. To measure cultural improvement, we conduct benchmarking reviews enabling leaders to manage for continuous improvement.
