Training interventions offered through this initiative will allow organisations to strengthen their internal ethics management capacity. The following offerings are available to organisations who are signed as supporters of the Coalition for Organisational Integrity:
- Governance of Ethics training – designed for members of the Board of Directors.
- Ethics Officer Certification Programme (EOCP) – This is a five-day course offered in English. A practicum needs to be completed within 90 days and the delegate needs to achieve a pass rate of at least 65%. The attendees will be certified as Ethics Officers if they successfully pass the practicum.
- Building an ethical culture workshop
This workshop offers tools on the ethics of organisation to ensure that an organisational ethical culture is established. This one-day workshop is, in essence, an expanded version of a module that one would encounter in any governance of ethics or ethics management training programme.
- Ethically Aware Supplier Induction programme (EASI)
EASI, which stands for “Ethically Aware Supplier Induction”, is an online short course in business ethics, presented by The Ethics Institute. It is an interactive programme with animated video content, case-studies, practical scenarios and exercises. The programme is especially designed for executive managers of small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) who need to make sense of increasing ethics demands on their businesses – and what to do about it. The idea is that large companies, in the interests of good governance, will use the EASI programme to train SMEs in their supply chains. The trained SMEs will be accredited as being “Ethically Aware”, and this accreditation will be accepted by a number of supporting large organisations.
