Company Code of Conduct Training
Code of Conduct
Geography Covered: Global | Duration: 40 minutes
This Code of Conduct training course provides essential training on the most important topics found in almost every company's Code of Conduct. The purpose of our online Code of Conduct training course is to help you mitigate potential penalties through a formal employee training policy, and includes pop quizzes, news clippings and a final quiz highlighting real-world Code of Conduct compliance and ethical issues that employees should learn to recognize and deal with appropriately.
An organization's code of conduct is often defined as an established set of legal and ethical guidelines and communicates expected standards of behaviour and procedures to all employees and other agents.
It's widely agreed that every company needs to have a policy statement on ethics in business and legalalities stipulated in code of conduct. In some countries, like the U.S., companies can mitigate potential penalties by adopting an effective Code of Conduct training program. For example, the U.S., has Organizational Sentencing Guidelines that require a company to "have taken steps to communicate effectively its standards and procedures to all employees and other agents, e.g., by requiring participation in Code of Conduct training courses or by disseminating publications that explain in a practical manner what is required." Thus, if a company hopes to qualify for more lenient treatment under the Guidelines in the event of employee or corporate misconduct, having, disseminating, and enforcing a Code of Conduct is essential.

The eight courses in the Conduct Risk Suite familiarize employees with the various areas of a firm’s culture and operations that present a conduct risk — the risk that customers and clients will suffer detriment as a result of the firm’s inappropriate business culture or inappropriate judgment in the execution of its business activities — and identify ways to mitigate this risk. Combatting conduct risk requires encouraging ethical behavior from all individuals associated with the firm and at all stages of the firm’s business operations, including the following areas covered in the Conduct Risk Suite: customer outcomes, conflicts of interest, culture and tone from the top, recordkeeping, hiring and onboarding, whistleblowing and personal liability concerns.
