Ethics for Trainers—Workplace Issue

Book Description

The news is full of stories about ethical lapses. Almost daily you read about organizations where people fail to behave ethically and the consequences of that failure: bad press, loss of market value, lawsuits, jail time, and even bankruptcy. But fostering ethics in organizations has more benefits than just avoiding negative consequences; one of these is increased job satisfaction.

Professionals in the human resource arena are often regarded as the seat of ethical expertise in an organization, but they may not always be equipped to handle ethical issues. That is where this Infoline comes in. It provides a model for understanding ethics, ways to raise awareness of ethics in organizations, and a case study to get the discussion started.
