How the ethics programme works

How it works

The programme begins with the creation of a Code of Ethics - specific for your organization. At this point, ef can conduct a survey of ethics awareness as part of your Code Communication Process. Next, the organization decides its approach to assuring compliance with the Code. Finally, practical training and development is provided to leaders and team members to increase commitment to ethical behaviour at all levels in the organization.

Introducing your ethics programme

Introducing your ethics programme

Introducing ethics programmes must be done sensitively. It is especially important to get the right message for the principled people that represent the majority of your organization.  If you mis-communicate, the ethics programme can be seriously misinterpreted and can be seen in the totally wrong light. To get greatest benefit, the integrity at work programme involves all levels of the organization in the communication and commitment to the programme.
