Discussion on challenges and opportunities related to corporate conduct
The theme of Business Ethics Day 2020 is the rise of speak-up culture. According to the organizers of the event, ethical companies seem to outperform in their markets over the long term, and business ethics can be a real competitive advantage for the companies that take it seriously.
One of the founding elements of business ethics and sustainability is a corporate culture that enables people to share their concerns and mistakes, especially those that occur in the gray zone. According to a recent study, Nordic Business Ethics Survey 2019, the most critical issue in Nordic companies is that employees do not dare speak up about their ethical concerns.
At the event, ethics & compliance professionals will discuss the challenges and opportunities related to corporate conduct, ethics, and sustainability.
