An ethical culture that is based on more than legal compliance is likely to enhance performance. According to research conducted by The Conference Board, “ethics and social responsibility” are among the top 10 skills employers find important among new employees. Further, “integrity and trust in the management team” has emerged as one of the top drivers of employee engagement.
Human resources, ethics, and compliance senior executives are now examining how they work together, how their functions intersect, and how they can capitalize on each others’ strengths to build a strong ethical culture.

Specific Topics to be discussed:
