Have you ever considered the cost of unethical behavior in an organization? Outside of fines, legal expenses, compliance and lost production, other costs are incurred. Employee morale, lost customers, failed projects, damage to existing equipment, injury and even death can occur because of unethical behavior. Many of us have been affected by poor ethical behavior at some point in our careers and if so, we actively seek to avoid participating or even seeing this behavior in others.
So, the next question is how do we ensure these issues don't occur in our own business. While training programs in the area of ethics do exist, many of them focus on compliance. This is flawed because we are training to regulation rather than training to make the individuals in an organization better.
Working with experts in the field of business ethics and psychology the BB&T Center for Ethical Leadership has developed new programming to help organizations better themselves and their employees to increase employee morale and business results.
The faculty and staff within the BB&T Center for Ethical Leadership along with Dr. Bryan Dawson from UNG's psychology department have developed the Ethical Culture Indicator.
This automated survey provides employee engagement and ethical feedback to identify strengths and areas of opportunity for an organization's culture. The Ethical Culture Indicator can be administered to either all employees or specific teams within an organization. It can also serve as a benchmark to measure organizational changes made to improve employee engagement and ethical activity.
The Building Ethical Leaders (BEL) program is a professional education program designed in partnership with EthicsGame, LLC and their founder Dr. Catharyn Baird to facilitate effective leadership and Ethical Maturity.
The BEL program allows participants to gain insight into their own personal ethical perspective, how to perceive others and how to make ethical decisions that are consistent with organizational value.

Both the ECI and BEL training are available as stand alone services or may be combined to measure the before and after effect of BEL training.
