Ethics and Integrity, Professionalism and Corporate Dilemma

“In looking for people to hire, you look for three qualities: Integrity, Intelligence, and Energy. And if they don’t have the first, the other two will kill you.” – Warren Buffet

Ethics and integrity are at the heart of any workplace culture and they are the values most sought after within an organisation’s policies and practices. Therefore, building workplace ethics and integrity involves ethical leadership, active management, effective processes, professionalism and most importantly self-internalisation by the employees.

Across industries, high ethical standards are critical to maintain public trust, confidence and reputation of any businesses. Unethical business practices could severely affect the company’s reputation and lead to long-term financial difficulties and hinder its ability to be sustainable. However, professionals in every industry sometimes encounter dilemmas in making ethical judgments. Therefore, it is imperative to understand the key factors involved in carefully weighing the options and in making the best decision to ensure the business sustainability remains intact.

Programme Objective

This programme will discuss the ethics and integrity in today’s corporate environment, focusing on a practical standpoint and how it could lead to catastrophic consequences if weaknesses or gaps in our conduct are not addressed. Discussions will also revolve around issues and challenges faced in strengthening business integrity, professionalism at work and corporate dilemma in dealing with the many facets of ethics, integrity and corporate governance.
