Business Ethics and Corporate Governance

 

Duration – 1 Day

Background

Credibility is built to showcase the desired image and Image is built on various factors such as Morals, Values, Integrity, Personality, and most importantly People. Business Ethics isn’t about transactions of today and tomorrow, instead it is a Transformation for a long term which directly reflects in your behaviour and further carries forward to your people. Hence, the values (business ethics) need to be clearly articulated and demonstrated. The ethical behaviour needs to be embedded within the strategies and action plan to internalize Business Ethics as an Organizational DNA and Culture.

Moving forward without business ethics is like a car traveling a curvy road without guard rails.  And the best thing about building a Moral Structure helps to bring clarity and focus which may take away maximum uncertainties of results. It is easy to say “Ethics must become part of the culture.” Where does an organization begin to make that happen?

“People Buy from People They Know and Trust”

Trust = Credibility = Business Image
