VIC OD&D Online Forum 

The topic of ethics will be covered over a series of four forums throughout 2021 and is being organised by the Victorian OD&D Committee.

These forums will discuss the imperative for ethical conduct and build on the many key aspects of ethics. This series will build a powerful business case for the organisational imperative to operate using ethical frameworks, and especially during decision making. We will also build the case of an urgent imperative for HR to be the catalyst for ethics.

During the series, you will receive tools and ways of thinking to enrich discussions with your Board and Executive team on why ethics is an opportunity and a threat if not taken into deliberate consideration.

This first session will focus on:
 - The imperative for HR
 - Why we should be the catalyst for ethics
 - Ensuring HR adds value to organisational imperatives
 - Retains the accountability for how people are treated and led
 - The impacts on employment brand franchise amongst current and future employees.

This session will also include break out rooms, where you'll discuss these key topics with your peers.

This forum is suitable for:
