Many organizations enlist their best efforts to develop, implement, and manage a strong and effective ethics and compliance program, monitoring its effectiveness, and employing disciplinary standards when it fails. However, there are employees and managers who engage in unethical practices despite their best intentions to follow the rules.

This webcast focuses on some of the research that has been conducted in the area of ethical decision-making, including: the ethical decisions employees make, taking into account the culture of the organization and the economic incentives for whistleblowing, and the ethics of employees and people in general by taking on the tough question of why ethical people sometimes behave unethically. This webcast also includes a discussion of how ethical decision-making manifests itself in the context of the day-to-day business environment.

In viewing, participants will:

  • Learn about the impact of financial incentives on ethical decision-making in the context of the Financial Services industry
  • Explore the role of financial incentives in ethical decision-making
  • Discuss the role of emotional memory in ethical decision-making

Audience: Executives and managers who are in charge of organizational ethics and compliance, governance, risk management, sustainability, finance, audit, sales & marketing, and human resources
