Online Ethics and Compliance Training
Ethics and Compliance Essentials
Geography Covered: Global | Duration: 35 minutes
This 35-minute Ethics and Compliance training course is, in essence, a "Code of Conduct Training" course for organizations that do not have a formalized Code of Conduct. It covers the same legal/ethical/compliance principles, but without reference to a Code. It includes pop-quizzes, news stories, and a final quiz highlighting real-world compliance issues that employees should learn to recognize and deal with appropriately.
The available versions for this course include:
- Ethics and Compliance Essentials (US)
- Code of Conduct (Global)
Reinforcing ethical principles and educating employees about compliance with the law are ongoing and important responsibilities. An organization is only as ethical and compliant as its officers, managers and employees. Ethics and compliance training is helpful for encouraging appropriate behavior, setting expectations, demonstrating the organization's commitment, and informing employees of laws or regulatory principles that may not be common knowledge.
Integrity and scruples not only keep us out of court and out of prison, but they are good for business. One study found that companies making "an explicit commitment to doing business ethically" have produced profit/turnover ratios at 18% higher than those without a similar commitment. Conversely, a bad reputation can ruin a business – ethics and compliance training is how an organization can avoid that.
