In The Workplace Of The Future, How Important Will Ethics Be?

1 July, 2021

In the workplace of the future, ethics will be even more important than it is now says Bruce Weinstein in this Forbes article.

Weinstein recently ran a poll asking about the importance, in the future, of ethics in the workplace. 61% believe it will be more important. One reason for this, says Weinstein, is the rapid pace of technology. He argues it will take increased vigilance of managers and other leaders in the workforce to ensure honesty and accountability.

The same vigilance will be necessary to train everyone – new hires and veterans alike – in how to recognise and combat both new threats to business operations, and existing threats such as money laundering, credit card fraud and market manipulation which are becoming increasingly sophisticated. That, coupled with the economic fallout of the pandemic, will make ethics training and ethical behaviour more important than ever at work, and beyond.
