Code of Conduct

What you will learn

A Code of Conduct provides the foundation for an organization’s compliance program and corporate culture. Employee misconduct is four times more likely to be observed in organizations with weak ethical cultures as compared to organizations with strong ethical cultures. Cultivating the right mindset in every employee is necessary not only to avoid the costly consequences of violations, but also to promote a high-performing environment where individuals – and, by extension, the business – can thrive.

At Skillsoft, we understand that educating employees on a company's Code of Conduct is essential for reducing the company's exposure to risk. To meet that need, organizations must provide effective, relevant training content that keeps pace with the continually-changing legal landscape and the company’s ever-evolving response.

Organizations need a solution that is flexible and customizable. Pairing highly-engaging video content with instructional material and skill-building questions, Skillsoft’s Global Code of Conduct Solution helps establish a baseline of the company’s core values. It also enables employees to identify the risks associated with a broad spectrum of compliance issues and understand their role in avoiding violations. Our solution is designed to provide critical training that can help a company build and reinforce a lawful and ethical culture. Skillsoft’s highly flexible training solution is available in over 25 languages and can be fully customized to an organization's Code in a way that maximizes the ease and speed of deployment while leveraging the economies of off-the-shelf training.

Global Anti-Bribery

Course | 18m

Every day companies do business with partners and clients from across the globe. The stakes are high, and time is money, so it can seem necessary to grease the wheels of a complex system that can be quite slow moving at times. But understanding the repercussions of corruption when doing business is important. Bribery is unethical and, in many locations around the world, illegal. This course defines bribery in the context of international business dealings. It describes the basic concepts of bribery and explores strategies for preventing bribery in international transactions.


Global Conflicts of Interest

Course | 18m

Many employees routinely face situations that can create a potential conflict of interest, where divided loyalties may affect their ability to make impartial decisions on behalf of their employer. Inappropriate resolution of these conflicts can result in direct financial loss to the organization, as well as the erosion of an organization's ethical culture and a damaged reputation. This course describes how to identify potential conflicts of interest and respond appropriately to them.
