Essential Business Ethics

Why Essential Business Ethics Training?

Ethics is concerned with distinguishing between good and evil in the world, between right and wrong human actions, and between virtuous and non virtuous characteristics of people.  It is a combination of your values, morals and conduct.

We face an increasing number of ethical issues in the business world and in our personal lives. The business scandals of recent years have highlighted the importance of ethical behavior in the business environment. For CEOs and all business professionals, a solid ethical foundation must be the basis from which one builds their business career. 

This module covers the elements necessary to make ethical decisions by defining the key definitions, issues, and theories of business ethics.  Through scenarios and case studies, learners explore the theoretical foundations of business ethics and learn how to develop an ability to recognize and properly address ethical questions.

 Our learners love us and we love them!

I liked that the module included practical exercises and unassisted assignments. Unlike exercises where a student can get by simply doing as directed, the assignments reveal the real learning. The assignments were where I discovered whether I truly understood the material. This module produces real learning.

The assignments were well designed and are good learning tools. The module provided a solid introduction to ethical topics with the right blend of theoretical and practical knowledge.  My team learned the importance of proper ethical behavior and how it impacts the success or downfall of a business.  
I appreciated the diversity and options offered for learning new skills, refreshing old ones or trying different challenges.  The self-reflection assignments were also beneficial in putting the concepts into practical application.
