Sound ethics programs and controls are at the heart of and organization's overall environment and culture (small and large). The environment and culture are essential elements of both an organization’s internal control and (enterprise) risk management systems. Auditors are in a unique position to add value to organizations from an independent / objective assurance perspective when evaluating ethics programs, controls and activities. But one does NOT have to be an auditor to be able to add significant value to organizations. Virtually everyone, regardless of their position or role, can contribute significantly to help improve an organization’s ethical culture and control environment. The key is to become aware of HOW we all can be such contributors and influencers for positive environmental / cultural change and growth.
Our program explores the vital Audit/ Ethics linkage supporting an organization’s governance, environment/ culture, and core risk management and control systems / processes, via reference to prevalent professional guidance in these areas. And in doing so, our program also innovatively provides practical self-auditing and ethics self-assessment strategies, promoting proactive opportunities for strengthening organizational culture and environment foundations that support and further enhance value for all organizational stakeholders!
