Ethics Training - Our Free Gift to You

Presenters : Caryn Maitland


Ethics is an all encompassing discussion that evolves with our life experiences, training and experience.  The subject of ethics can be looked at from three different angles:  

  1. Personal ethics- Our personal beliefs form the foundation of our moral compass. This is what a person identifies with in dealing with people and situations on a daily basis. 

  2. Professional ethics - Our professional beliefs align us to our colleagues and our aim to protect public interest. 

  3. Business ethics -  Our business ethics guide us with respect to the people we surround ourselves with and the organisational culture we create.
