Course Description

Ethical behavior is more noticeable in corrupt environments than in ethical ones; it is easier for an ethical company to stand out in a corrupt environment. Organizations should view the prospect of building a strong ethical reputation in such settings as an opportunity and consider the costs of resisting corruption as an investment in building such a reputation.

This session addresses how organizations can go about being ethical in a corrupt environment and how they should frame their ethical behavior in a way that resonates with as vast a network of ethically sensitive stakeholders as possible.

Learning Objectives:

  • Identify the importance of establishing a strong ethics and compliance program

  • Determine how to instill ethics from the top of the organization

  • Determine how to deal with different types of stakeholders

  • Recall examples of what makes an ethics and compliance program effective
