Code of Conduct Training FAQs
What is a Code of Conduct
A Code of Conduct should be more than a set of rules and restrictions placed on employees by the company's leadership team. A good Code of Conduct should also communicate your organisation's mission, values, and principles and promote good ethical behaviours so your employees make the right choices whilst at work. This is achieved by firmly setting the tone at the top and allowing it to permeate through the entire company.
Most companies have a Code of Conduct, either through a formal documentation or through a set of policies and procedures. But, all too often, employees don't know what it says or where to locate it. As the framework which guides appropriate levels of behaviour, best practices, and responsibilities for members of staff, it is essential your Code of Conduct becomes a 'living part' of your compliance programme.
Code of Conduct Training Courses
eLearning is an effective medium for communicating your Code of Conduct; it allows you to combine storytelling with scenario-based examples with assessments and memorable graphics and videos. A good Code of Conduct will provide an ever-present reference point for employees dealing with ethical dilemmas and grey areas about their job role and the culture they work within.
An effective Code of Conduct/Code of Ethics course allows organisations to:
- Communicate the tone from the top (a way of establishing corporate culture as it is understood by its leadership team. In this sense, leaders both create codes of conduct and live by them).
- Create a common framework for employees to work to (tell employees what is expected of them and what they can expect from the organisation)
- Build a compliance culture
- Align employees with the organisation's values
- Get new starters off to the right start
- Provider refresher training for existing staff
