DESCRIPTION

 

Workplace ethics is a cornerstone of efficient and effective government. Ethical behavior among Federal employees is made evident by establishing and fostering an ethical culture. Human resource practitioners play an important role to help ensure that agency managers understand ethics requirements. The U.S. Office of Government Ethics fosters high ethical standards for executive branch employees and strengthens the public’s confidence that the Government’s business is conducted with impartiality and integrity.

 

This presentation will provide an introduction to the mission and structure of the executive branch ethics program, the ethics laws and regulations, and best practices for managing the risk of ethical failure within organizations. The information presented will allow HR professionals to:

 

  • Recognize situations that implicate the ethics laws and regulations

  • Identify organizational characteristics that heighten the risk of ethical failure

  • Obtain concrete best practices for identifying and mitigating risk within their organizations

  • Know who to contact for assistance in applying the ethics rules

 

The audience viewing the Roundtable will have the opportunity to ask our distinguished presenters questions on the matters discussed. Please send all questions to employeeaccountability@opm.gov.
