    Course Introduction

    Address the Rise of Fraud and Unethical Behavior in Organizations. In recent times, instances of fraud and corruption within organizations have been on the rise. The question arises – do we actively participate in such behavior or turn a blind eye to it? Organizations aspire to attract employees with strong ethical values who can resist engaging in fraudulent activities. However, achieving this ideal is not always the case. People come from diverse backgrounds and possess varying drivers, morals, and values.

    Ethics and corruption stand at opposing ends of the spectrum. The purpose of this program is to elevate moral standards as a means to counter potential or existing corruption within the workplace. The central focus of this initiative is on promoting ethics, rather than solely concentrating on corporate governance.

    Unethical conduct within organizations poses a significant risk. Ethical behavior is about maintaining consistency in actions and decisions. This program aims to instill and uphold ethical principles as a foundation for promoting a more trustworthy and responsible work environment.
