Description

Is Your Ethics Program in Order?, Sponsored by Schnader Harrison Segal & Lewis LLP

A robust and effective ethics program is essential to your business. This program will help ensure that your ethics program meets regulatory requirements, is up-to-date and functional, and that your company’s ethical standards are applied both internally and externally during the course of business dealings. Participants should come prepared to assess their ethics programs and will leave with practical tips and guidelines. Taught from the perspective of a former criminal prosecutor and government regulator, this program will walk you through a complete ethics program process, including: appraising needs, assessing existing ethics programs, taking stock of your business’ ethical culture, the preparation of a Code of Ethics, the development of appropriate internal controls, and use of effective annual ethics training.
