The Benefits of Ethic Sage’s Ethical Business Practices Presentations

Ethics Training is the Key to Workplace Success

It seems that ethics in the workplace is on the decline and the younger the employee is, the less sense of ethics they have in a professional setting.  Millennials have a different standard of right and wrong than past worker generations. All businesses today require ethical business practices that can be taught and implemented into their workplace culture and code of conduct.  Ethical business practices keep employees operating on a day-to-day schedule with integrity and consistent with the long-term strategic goals of an organization. Ethics education ensures that the company maintains its good reputation, employees stay motivated and positive and that business thrives in its market.  Speaking engagements on ethical business practices can include any of the following topics or be tailored to the needs of the organization:

Preventing Fraud

Fraud in the workplace costs the business and sets a negative image for the rest of the team. Fraud and other unethical behavior can threaten the good reputation of an organization and subject it to unnecessary risk.  Fraud prevention is an important component of workplace ethics and an experienced educator and such as the Ethics Sage addresses each of the following issues surrounding fraud prevention:

1. Setting clear ethical standards

2. Living the standards and leading by example

3. Reinforcing the importance of your businesses standards at career milestones

4. Bringing in outside specialists, like auditors, to take an objective look at your procedures and compliance with ethical standards.

5. Introducing and promote a whistleblower hotline

6. Rewarding positive behavior

7.  Developing ethics training programs to educate employees of the risks and costs of fraud

These points can be thoroughly discussed in detail with a guest speaker that has extensive experience with preventing fraud in the workplace and improving the ethical standards of entire organizations. The following links provides an example of his teachings on ethics in the workplace:

Understanding Appropriate Conduct

Working in a corporate environment is a two-way street.  The leaders have to respect the team and vice versa.  This involves knowing the correct way to behave in a professional setting.  Many younger team members may come to the team with fewer boundaries than their older counterparts and there have been clashes in the corporate environment due to these differences.  Most of the time, this includes comments that are too personal or inappropriate, taking breaks that are too long or coming in late every day.  For a business to operate at its full potential, the employees have to be on the same page about what is expected, encouraged or discouraged.  This helps to create harmony and expectations that everyone can live up to. 

Develop Interpersonal Skills

An expert on ethical business practices can help CEO’s and executive level leaders develop their interpersonal skills and provide training to employees to help them advance and thrive in their role.  Soft skill development starts with the recruiting process. Recruiters should invest significant time and effort to ensure that considerations of nontechnical attributes occur throughout every step of the recruiting, retention, and talent development life cycle. The Ethics Sage will be able to assist with developing these skills and teach how to implement these abilities into hiring training and day-to-day operations.  Visit, http://www.ethicssage.com/
