Abstract

In today's decisive world, ethical behaviour may on occasions appear to be optional to imperative business and individual objectives. In any case, the effect of an organisation's employees' ethical decisions can be similarly as critical as the effect of their business decisions. No more than one poor decision could place an organisation in an unsavoury reputation damaging scandal, expose profitable cerebral assets to hacking programmers, bring about serious individual and organisational fines or cause even more deplorable scenarios. This is the reason it is highly necessary for employees to be equipped by training them on ethics in an organisation. Using secondary data, this paper throws light on the benefits organisations derive from training their staff on ethical norms and standards. It recommends that for organisations to accomplish its goals of infusing ethical behaviour and attitude into the psyche of its employees, they should take more stringent steps to promote ethics training so that it becomes an integral part of the organisation culture. This can be achieved by management demonstrating keen interest in the ethics training process and encouraging employees who prove through their actions that the ethics training they received has impacted on them. Training employees to have the capacity to settle on ethical choices ought to be given top precedence in any organisation that desires to boost productivity and create positive outcomes at the decisive point.
