Ethics and Code of Conduct for HR Professionals

OnDemand Webinar (87 minutes)

Ethics in the workplace can make the difference between improving successful business relationships and productivity or failing in business because of management's unawareness and lack of knowledge about practical business ethics.All organizations should develop and implement a code of conduct throughout every department. Unethical behavior can lead to violations of the law, litigation, a poor reputation, low employee morale, or even total corporate failure. Positive business ethics will improve HR's awareness and knowledge of the best practices that must prevail throughout the entire business structure. Not only will this topic help management learn how to improve employee morale and loyalty, but will create a commitment to the organization, its purpose, goals, and objectives. Even if your company, business, or organization already has a code of conduct, let's get it updated, improved, relevant to your business entity, and working effectively throughout the entire organization, awareness and skill-levels.
