In today’s world of faster, better, cheaper, businesses are in an all-out sprint to beat the competition. Sometimes this means management and HR are being asked to push the envelope or go right up to that line in the sand. Is it right to push it just a little? To see how far you can bend it before it snaps? To rationalize the fact that it was just once, or who’s it going to hurt?
HR professionals must remain above the fray. We must work with both the company and the employees. We can’t give either stakeholder a reason to doubt our motives. If we do, we reduce, or eliminate, our ability to be effective in our human resources role. In fact, the Society for Human Resource Management has a Code of Ethics that every member agrees to follow.
In this session, participants will learn why it is critical for HR professionals to follow not only the letter of the law (rules, regulations, guidelines, norms) but also the intent. Your reputation is on the line, but so is that of the entire HR profession.
