For most of us, compliance might seem something that happens to us, only about interpretations of what legislation and regulation requires of us; necessary but boring – a nuisance even. But what if doing the right thing was actually good for business? What if we looked beyond the processes to the basis of ethical behaviour? Wouldn’t we care a little more about “compliance” if we thought about the outcome and not just the process?
Ruth Steinholtz a leading practitioner in value-based business ethics and co-author of Ethical Business Practice and Regulation: A Behavioural and Values-based Approach to Compliance and Enforcement joins us to stimulate our thinking and personal awareness of why conduct and culture are so important and how each of us can improve the industry and benefit from it at the same time.
Following a successful international career in law and business ethics, Ruth Steinholtz founded AretéWork LLP in 2011. The firm assists organisations globally in managing risk and improving results by fostering strong ethical cultures based upon their values.
Previously, as General Counsel and Head of Ethics at Borealis AG, Ruth developed a values based approach to ethics and compliance – employing ethics ambassadors throughout the organisation. This proved so successful that organisations around the world have adopted this approach; publicised through Ruth’s Good Practice Guide to Ethics Ambassadors written for the IBE and her many presentations.
Ruth’s unique approach combines knowledge of the underlying legal and regulatory framework of ethics and compliance and her expertise in culture risk measurement, behavioural ethics, culture change and experience in team leadership and coaching. Areté is the Greek concept of excellence and virtue ethics – being the best one can be.
