How Can We Identify Ethical Behavior at Work?
I hosted an event where the participants were composed of compliance professional in the financial services industry. As an ‘ice-breaker’ I asked each one to provide me with an example of an action that was an ethical violation, but not a compliance violation. In other words, I wanted examples of actions that could be considered a ‘failure of ethics’, but not a failure of compliance. It turned not to be a pretty unsuccessful ice-breaker since most people could not come up with a single example.
