Tools for an Ethical Work Place is a foundational ethics course that helps employees make good choices. Most employees know the difference between right and wrong, but certain circumstances can make it difficult to act upon that knowledge. This course provides insight into the competing pressures affecting their everyday actions, and allows them to practice overcoming common ethical obstacles.

Drugs and Alcohol in the Work Place is designed to train employees about the dangers of drugs and alcohol in the workplace. It shows employees the negative impact of substance abuse, and discusses the physiological and behavioral effects of commonly abused substances. It also covers the disease of addiction, the employer’s anti-drug and alcohol policy, the consequences for violations, and resources for employees.

Code of Conduct educates your employees on how to abide by your organization’s ethical guidelines with every business interaction and transaction. Educates employees on how to mitigate legal and financial risks through real-life examples and ethically-challenging scenarios. Topics covered include: conflicts of interest, insider trading, gifts, travel and entertainment, protecting company information, data breaches, financial integrity, books and record keeping, contracts and trade restraints, legal integrity, fair competition, imports/exports, anti-corruption/anti-bribery, working with foreign officials/United States officials, whistleblowers, anti-retaliation. Employers may upload branded, company-specific resources within each course module creating a truly customized experience.

Understanding bias in the workplace is the first step to managing it. Managing Bias defines bias, describes how it affects the workplace, and encourages learners to use that knowledge to reduce the negative effects of bias. Employees will understand that biases can affect our actions, which can have real impacts on people, and that if left unchecked, biases can create unhealthy work environments that reinforce unjust practices.

The Diversity, Inclusion, and Belonging course will consist of five core modules, plus an introductory and conclusion module. Each core module is designed to be 5-10 minutes in length. The content is designed to be relevant for a variety of industries and workplaces, including remote or hybrid work environments.
