New Program: Rethinking Corporate Ethics with Julian Baggini

Published on

Business ethics often make the headlines. Companies who compromise on their corporate ethics often witness a very damaging impact on their image and finances.

Many organizations understand the importance of good ethics and so have developed corporate social responsibility policies. But this is far from enough. Despite the efforts made, a large number of organizations continue to become engaged in shady practices and embroiled in scandals. Despite what the cynics believe, however, all this talk of doing good is more than just a PR exercise.

Most organizations are sincere in wanting to do the right thing. The reason they fail is that the solutions they have implemented, such as establishing ethical rules and codes, are missing something fundamental: encouraging all their employees, from top to bottom, to truly live according to the values they have defined.

Using his philosopher’s perspective, Julian Baggini will help you promote good habits and cultivate practical wisdom.

Ethics is about deeds, not words. It needs to be a centralized, transparent and sustained preoccupation, embodied by everyone in the organization.
