What you will gain
This workshop is designed to give an overview of what Ethics is and how it affects our organisations. The one-day workshop will look at some Ethical issues that have been faced by organisations, and how they addressed them. For example, why have Sainsbury’s introduced their ‘own brand’ fairtrade coffee?

One of the issues with Ethics is how we ‘frame’ the Ethical issue, so we will look at some well-known methodologies for doing this.

We will look at why Ethics is important to the corporate Brand and efforts that can be introduced through Corporate Social Responsibility initiatives, to improve the perception of the brand. For example, why do General electric (GE) support their employees to volunteer over 1 million hours per year!

The course will look at well publicised Ethical issues as well as helping you think about an ethical strategy for your own organisation, with some ideas for policies and procedures.

Please note this course is not looking at ethics from an advanced legal perspective and does not address the minutiae of whistle blowing and the law.
