WHY WE EXIST?
We exist to assist and advise organisation in establishing a clearly deﬁned ethics governance structure and ethics management function that will ensure that an ethical organisational culture is established and sustained. Enhance ethical leadership and ethical decision making.
Critical questions your organisations should consider: What is the ethics culture of your organisation? Have you really investigated your organisation and considered what your business ethics really are? Do you know if management decisions rooted o integrity and commitment to employees, customers and shareholders and all your stakeholders? What is the ethical culture being branded in the organisation? who is talking and what are they saying? Is leadership saying or doing anything to set the tone for an ethical culture? What structures in the organisation support the reports are being table to the governance bodies to enable them to perform their ﬁduciary duties?
Nature abhors vacuum! If management is not saying anything in setting the tone, some other narrative is being branded and set as the tone. If you cannot measure your organisations’ ethical behaviour, you can not manage it. The Ethics Platform exists to provide organisations with solutions to answer these questions.
