This Code of Conduct online training course provides a model Code of Conduct that is a synthesis of more than 20 such policies in use by major companies today. A company that already has a Code in place can customize and use this course to communicate that policy to its employees online — clearly, an easy and effective way to communicate the message — and ensure the employees' familiarity with its policy quickly and cost-effectively. Likewise, for a company that has not yet assembled or implemented a Code of Conduct, this course provides a turn-key solution that can be put in place quickly.
It is widely agreed that every company needs to have a policy statement on legal and ethical conduct. The Organizational Sentencing Guidelines require that a company 'must have taken steps to communicate effectively its standards and procedures to all employees and other agents. It's important that you review the Code periodically so that you'll have these principles in mind as you go about your work. We've created this training program that explains the most important parts of the Code. This course will help you recognize legal and ethical issues as they arise in the workplace, respond appropriately to those issues, and perform your jobs with the utmost integrity.
Keep in mind that this material is provided for informational purposes only and is not intended to be, nor should it be understood as, legal advice. If you have questions about any of the matters explained in this program or contained in the Code, talk to your supervisor, the Human Resources Department, or the Legal Department.
