Your Ethics Program: How to Make It Work

Course Overview
It almost goes without saying that organizations, and their financial executives, do want to act ethically. Yet, why do so many corporate ethics programs fail to have an impact on worker conduct? Here, Mary Jo Green and Susan Koski-Grafer, who serve on the board of advisors of H.S. Grace & Company, explain why your success at building and maintaining ethical behavior requires much more than simply talking about integrity or issuing guidelines for moral conduct.

  • Recognize the best practices for an organization's ethics code;
  • Distinguish between the rewards for good behavior and the punishment for bad behavior;
