Esteem are now delivering the NVQ L7 in Senior Construction Management and one of the Units is “able to practice within an ethical framework”.
The first L7 cohort attacked this topic at their first Action Learning Set last month and did a great job of dissecting it and coming up with some interesting angles and issues.
Two key recommendations were
1 Have a Company Policy on Ethics
2 Have a Code of Conduct for Ethics (mandatory and voluntary)
A good definition was “Business ethics is the application of ethical values to business behaviour – individual and the organisation”
