IIA Fraud Presentation(Press Space Bar to Continue)Why is Ethical Business Conduct so Important?
  • High Standards are more than a slogan or catch phrase – they are a way of doing business.
  • Maintaining high standards means conducting business ethically and legally.
  • Our adherence to these standards is a key component in building a reputation for excellence and integrity.
  • Why Care About Ethical Issues? Delivering high quality education programs to students represents our core business values that should be reflected throughout all of our relationships with the schools, vendors, parents and students. Ethical conduct violations can result in serious consequences for our employees, even imprisonment under some circumstances. But most importantly, you should care about ethical violations because violations of ethical conduct make everyone a victim. The negative impact on you personally and professionally could be severe.In Carrying Out Our Core Responsibilities, We Should Strive to Commit to:
  • Conduct business honestly, openly, fairly, and with integrity
  • Comply with all applicable laws, statutes, regulations, and District policies
  • Avoid obvious or known conflict of interest situations
  • Never offer or accept illegal gifts for services rendered
  • Take immediate steps to report any actions against employees, trustees, vendors or employees whose behavior violates the District code of ethics
  • How Can I Help Maintain High Standards of Business Conduct?1. Think Before You Act!Ask yourself:
  • Is it illegal?
  • Does it violate District standards or the code of business conduct and ethics?
  • Could it cause loss or harm to you, co-workers, the District, parents, patrons, students, or vendors who conduct business with us?
  • Would you feel uncomfortable if everyone knew you did it?
  • If you answer “yes” to any of these questions, the action is very likely wrong, and you should avoid it.If the answers aren’t clear, don’t take a chance. Consult District policy or consider speaking to management. When you think before you act, and make the right decision, you uphold high standards, and set a good example for others to follow.2. Speak Up!USE PEER INFLUENCEIf you see or suspect business conduct violations, don’t ignore the situation. Say something to express your concern. Your influence could help prevent someone from making a big mistake.Discuss ItIf the situation doesn’t improve, and peer influence isn’t appropriate, don’t ignore it. Ignoring business conduct violations only allows the problem to grow more costly and frustrating.If you have a concern or question regarding business conduct issues, discuss it with the appropriate supervisor or manager.Some Common Examples of Business Conduct Issues
