12:00 PM Managing Ethics and Integrity in Risk and Governance to Ensure Transparency, Accountability and Optimise Organisational Performance

Culture plays an important part in risk and governance, so it is important to set the bar from the beginning and ensure you develop and build a culture of transparency and integrity to set a high expectation for honest behavior. As technology and outside disruptors continue to evolve the workforce and challenge ways of working, building the understanding of the importance of ethics and integrity will help your organisation in managing risks and upholding governance despite future changes. In this workshop, you will learn to redevelop your current framework to design and integrate ethics and integrity for future resilience and optimise organisational performance.

What will this workshop cover?

  • Tone from the top - how to embed ethical culture policies in the future
  • How to improve your correspondence throughout your organisation to develop better accountability structures and understanding among individuals and understanding of necessary changes
  • Development of in-house programs and systems to be put in place to emphasise importance of integrity and ethics in situations for better response and higher resilience in future scenarios
  • Cultivating your organisation’s positive reputation with dealing with ethics by refining strategies around your reporting regime and reporting misconduct
