Business Ethics For The Office


What exactly makes a decision ethical? This Business Ethics for the Office workshop will not provide you with an easy way to solve every ethical decision you will ever have to make. It will, however, help you define your ethical framework to make solving those ethical dilemmas easier. It will also provide tools and techniques to use to avoid becoming involved in an ethical quandary.

Business Ethics for the Office training course,  participants will start to understand what exactly an ethical dilemma is, the difference between ethics and morals, the value of being ethical, how to use tools to make better decisions, and how to deal with common ethical dilemmas.
