Ethics Management Presentation

  1. 1. Bridget Quattrucci CM 225-05 AU October 27,2009
  2. 2. Ethics Management Program <ul><li>This presentation will illustrate the need for an ethics management program and make suggestions on how to accomplish the task. </li></ul>
  3. 3. Sarbanes-Oxley Act <ul><li>This act focuses on internal controls. </li></ul><ul><li>Monitoring of professional ethics and independence from issuers (Congress, 2002). </li></ul><ul><li>There are possible criminal charges as well as hefty fines. </li></ul>
  4. 4. Necessary Components
  5. 5. Ethics Training <ul><li>Robert Finocchio of Santa Clara University says to “Make employee development part of strategy and make ethics training part of employee development.” (Schulman, 2006) </li></ul><ul><li>The American Institute of Certified Public Accountants (AICPA) offers a comprehensive program. </li></ul><ul><li>The program covers the most up-to-date AICPA, SEC and GOA rules, even those covered under the Sarbanes-Oxley Act. It also explains the AICPA Code of Professional conduct, the principles of ethics, and why the code is important and how it is organized (CPA2Biz Inc, 2001). </li></ul><ul><li>To train the 45 AICPA members that we employ it would cost roughly $5,025. </li></ul>
  6. 6. Ethics Hotline <ul><li>Finocchio recommends encouraging all employees to be challenging and demanding of everyone in the company, including bosses, in the ethical domain (Schulman, 2006). </li></ul><ul><li>Fraudulent activity can be caught much more quickly if employees are encouraged and willing to tip off the appropriate individuals. </li></ul><ul><li>Ethical Advocate has exactly what we need. Employees will be able to report suspicious behavior via their website or their 24/7/365 call center. </li></ul><ul><li>It will cost approximately $3,600 per year to use Ethical Advocate’s services. </li></ul>
  7. 7. Ethical Dilemma Resolution <ul><li>Ethical dilemmas may have conflicting values among interested parties, equally justifiable alternatives, and considerable consequences to stakeholders (McNamara, 1997). </li></ul><ul><li>The first step in this process should be to form an ethics committee comprised with members of the board, top management, and some staff members (McNamara, 1997). </li></ul><ul><li>Once the committee is selected the method used to analyze ethical dilemmas will need to be chosen. </li></ul><ul><li>After the analytical method is chosen the procedures for addressing the committee and resolving issues should be written carefully so as to ensure their success. </li></ul>
