• Unit 1: Why Ethics Matters

    Why do ethics matter? According to Driscoll (2017): "...businesses without values are businesses at risk. Their reputations suffer in the marketplace, depressing stock prices and eroding consumer confidence; recruitment of talented personnel is more difficult. Many companies now perform due diligence on companies they are considering as partners or suppliers, and are passing on those that don't meet their ethical standards." If you are a part of an organization at any level, it is essential to understand your role in ethical conduct and recognize what to do when ethical challenges arise. In this unit, you will examine the concepts of being a professional of integrity, the role of ethics and profitability, as well as single vs. multi-ethical standards.
