Ethics are back on the “front burner” as we head to 2018. We need to update our understanding of the role ethics plays in our lives, and the impact integrity will have on the workplace in the future. We will review current ethical standards, then build the resources needed to screen new hires for integrity, and finally train these new viewpoints into our organizations. In this fast-paced session, Karl J. Ahlrichs, SPHR offers multiple viewpoints on ethics and leadership and shares the skills you will need to maintain your competitive advantage.
We will cover new ethical challenges and how they apply to the workplace of the near future, and advanced methods for training others in these issues. We will begin with fresh data on the metrics that really matter, which will lead us to significant ethical challenges on the horizon. All of this will be mapped on top of a brief review of some fundamental economic data and the client service framework in which construction, manufacturing and the skilled trades operate.
Key topics include:
• The shifting world of ethics, metrics, and how organizational effectiveness is measured
• A review of ethical standards in contracting and the skilled trades
• An understanding of where the new attitudes on ethics and integrity are coming from
• How to leverage advanced adult learning methods to teach ethics and build a sustainable high performing culture
