Business Ethics

The Business Ethics training course is intended to help employees develop an understanding of business ethics so that they can identify and deal appropriately with ethical issues that arise in the workplace.

Geography Covered: Global | Duration: 30 minutes


A firm's success is directly influenced by the ethical behaviour of its employees. Abiding by good business ethics is the foundation for earning and keeping the trust and loyalty of customers. Nothing is more important to a firm’s future than customer trust. Once it is lost, trust is very difficult to win back.

The negative consequences of unethical behaviour can impact many areas. Besides damaging a firm’s reputation, brand and shareholder value, misconduct can undermine public confidence in the markets, hurt the firm's work culture and lead to more financial crime. Negative publicity from ethical misconduct can also hurt a firm’s ability to attract and retain outstanding employees.

The Business Ethics training course covers the importance of 'doing the right thing' and behaving ethically in a business context, the principles behind ethical decision making and employees’ responsibility to recognise and prevent unethical conduct.

Topics covered in this course include:

  • Introduction
  • Background
  • How Do We Define Ethical Behaviour?
  • Code of Conduct
  • Making the Right Decision
  • Putting Ethics into Practice
  • Social Media
  • Conclusion
