Webcast: Real Integruty - Promoting integrity in organisations
Presenter: Dr Jim Baxter
Webcast details: Tuesday 1st October, 12pm (GMT)
In this webcast, Dr Jim Baxter from the Inter-Disciplinary Ethics Applied (IDEA) Centre at the University of Leeds discusses how organisations can build a culture of integrity. In the first part of the presentation, Jim will address what it means to have integrity, both for an individual and for an organisation. From here, Jim will go on to consider some barriers to the successful promotion of integrity, and finally will discuss a number of ways in which employees can contribute to an ethical culture within their own organisation. The webcast will draw on insights from academic ethics, and also on a substantial piece of research, involving 92 interviews in 15 different UK organisations, which Jim carried out in 2012. The webcast will be interactive and practically focused, concentrating on methods which participants can use in their own organisation.
