How do you make better ethical decisions at work? Just because a particular choice is legal does not make it right.

Seeing legal compliance as the goal of ethics rather than the starting point can lead to poor decision making with disastrous consequences for the individuals involved and their organizations. Compliance is essential - but it’s not enough.

This 2 part series presents an easy-to-learn approach that will help employees at all levels make better ethical decisions.

Program 1: 3 Steps to Ethical Decisions (24 Minutes)

3 Steps to Ethical Decisionsintroduces the process. We hear from a former Enron executive as well as six ethics experts who discuss the pressures people can feel that may lead them to make poor decisions. We explore the importance of being aware of our core values as well as the standards of behavior expected by our organizations and our communities. Most importantly, we learn the 3 steps we can each take when faced with a tough ethical choice to help us make the best possible decision. These are:

  1. The Compliance Test
  2. The Ripple Effect
  3. The Gut Check

Program 2:  Ethical Situations to Consider (32 Minutes)

Ethical Situations to Consider presents us with 8 dramatized scenarios. These stories represent familiar ethical issues most of us will face at some time. By discussing these situations and applying the 3 Steps process in each case, employees gain valuable practice and reinforcement.

Compliance Is Just the Beginning Includes:

  • Program 1: 3 Steps to Ethical Decisions DVD (24 Minutes)
  • Program 2: Ethical Situations to Consider DVD (32 Minutes)
  • Course Outlines
  • Training Activities
  • Reproducible Handouts

COMPLIMENTARY REVIEW (From Training Media Review):

"I can't see why a company would pass on an opportunity to teach ethical decision making in these turbulent times. Compliance Is Just the Beginning provides the perfect backdrop to discuss company values, difficult decision making, and ethical issues affecting today's workers. The variety of scenarios and quality of the content will take the sting out of training such a touchy subject. As a facilitator, you will benefit from the structure and flexibility to pick and choose how to conduct discussions and exercises. Your audience will appreciate the credible expert opinions that they wouldn’t get in a typical compliance meeting."
