I cannot recommend Ruth highly enough. She takes the theory of Ethics and combines it with the practical application. Working within the water sector in Scotland as we embark on the biggest change for years, Ruth has provided guidance and support in baselining what Ethical Business Practice and Regulation really means. With a foundation in behaviour, culture and values, I would recommend Ruth to anyone who is considering transformational change looking for a much more effective relationship between regulators and the regulated.Michelle Ashford

What our services help you address
An effective ethical culture is founded on true core values, actively championed, and consistently reinforced. We can help you:
- Measure your organisation’s culture using a Cultural Values Assessment
- Identify and describe your organisation’s true core values
- Identify any obstacles in the path to an effective ethical culture
- Learn the lessons of behavioural ethics
- Create a plan/map to guide you to achieving the ethical culture you desire
Proven approaches and frameworks
In my book Ethical Business Practice and Regulation (with Prof. Chris Hodges) we suggest three elements of an effective ethical culture, The Foundation and two Frameworks: Cultural and Leadership and Values-based Ethics and Compliance.
Our Holistic approach encompasses:
- An exploration of the Foundation of an effective ethical culture and assessment of any gaps in your organisation’s culture
- Assistance in implementing aspects of the Cultural and Leadership Framework
- Assistance in implementing a values-based Ethics and Compliance Framework
- Discovery of the benefits of an Ethics Ambassador network and assistance in the creation of your own diplomatic corps for ethics
- Improve your employee’s ethical decision making skills
Why this, why now?
Continuous learning and professional development are needed to keep up in today’s challenging environment. Anyone working in the legal, ethics & compliance and risk fields must have a broad skill base.
- Is your team working to its highest potential? Is it cohesive or are elements working at cross purposes? A team workshop might be the answer?
- Do your leaders need more support? We can provide individual coaching and mentoring of senior professionals.
- Is your ethics ambassador network in place? We can design and facilitation of bespoke workshops to launch or re-energise an ethics ambassador network.
Our Services are built around our long-held beliefs that:
Compliance is an Outcome, not an Approach
