ACFE Global Fraud Conference 2019

June 23-28, 2019

(Un)Ethical Decision Making: Is Your Training Changing Behaviors or Checking the Box?

Most organizations provide ethics training, but does it make a difference? Is it just “checking a box” or does it actually change behaviors? Often, ethics training focuses on case studies and examples of organizations that made unethical decisions that led to fraud or scandal. But we already know the outcome…and therefore we also know the right answer. We aren’t learning how to evaluate situations and prevent them; we are only examining specific scenarios and their failures. For ethics training to drive positive behavior, it must teach ethical decision-making skills. It requires understanding subconscious influences, significance of context, power of language, framing of issues and causes of ethical blindness. This session will explain why corporate ethics training must go beyond informing employees of laws and organizational policies and instead focus on equipping employees with the skills to make sound ethical decisions.

Mary will be presenting a double session:

  • Tuesday, June 25 from 1:50 to 3:05
  • Wedensday, June 26 from 10:05 to 11:20
