ETHICS INSTITUTE OF SOUTH AFRICA
The MIoD has signed a Memorandum of Understanding with the Ethics Institute of South Africa (EthicsSA) in October 2010. The objective is to encourage research, corporate training and greater awareness of business ethics, as well as sharing ethics resources and endeavouring to build ethics capacity.
Having an ethical culture is an important component to running an effective business today. In fact, with the current state of legal and industry regulations, not only is having an ethical culture a good idea, it is now practically a requirement. So an ethical culture should be a top priority of every business, large or small. The challenge for many organizations is trying to understand what it takes to build one. From an enforceable code of conduct, to on-going training and communications, to an anonymous reporting hotline, companies can quickly implement ethics and compliance programs and solutions that foster an ethical culture across the enterprise. The benefits and pay back are less fraud, less risk, less litigation and safer, happier employees. And happy employees make happy customers, which will have an obvious impact on the bottom line.
The MIoD runs various training workshops under the aegis of EthicsSA including:
- Leading an Ethical Work Culture -one day workshop designed to understand the ethical issues in the work place and best practices for dealing with them
- Ethics Management and Corruption Prevention - one day workshop aimed at providing delegates with the knowledge and skills to develop and implement an Ethics Management strategy and framework in their organisation.
- Ethics Officer Certification Programme - 5 day workshop including full certification.
EthicsSA is a non-profit company andpublic benefit organisation incorporated in 1999, governed by a board consisting of prominent individuals in the private and public sectors as well as academia.
The mission of EthicsSA is "building an ethical South Africa" and their core activities are:
- Ethics advocacy;
- Ethics education and training; and
- Ethics advisory services.
EthicsSA's work covers a wide spectrum of ethical issues raised by individual and collective human action, with a special focus on organisational ethics (including business ethics) and bioethics (medical ethics).
EthicsSA's organisational ethics activities are consistent with the King 3 Report on Corporate Governance for South Africa (2009) which recommends that business and other organisations:
- Assess their ethical risks;
- Set ethical standards (Codes of Ethics and ethics policies);
- Integrate those standards into the organisation's structures and practices (ethics communication: ethics education and training; reporting unethical conduct, whistle-blowing hotlines); and
- Monitor and report on these interventions.
