Combining ethics and compliance:
A systems psychodynamic inquiry into practices and outcomes

 

For this month's issue, Prof Mias de Klerk from the University of Stellenbosch Business School contributed a fascinating article titled: "Combining ethics and compliance".

This article is based on an analytical study defining the general practices and outcomes that "combining ethics and compliance" have on our unconscious psychological processes responsible for shaping our thinking. 

TEI wants to thank Prof de Klerk for his continued and loyal support of TEI's vision, and more specifically, his contribution to the April 2021 newsletter.

TEI Handbook series
Ethics Ambassador Handbook
 

TEI is proud to present the Ethics Ambassador Handbook - the 8th handbook in the TEI Ethics Handbook Series, authored by Dr Paul Vorster and Ms Fatima Rawat.

Ethics ambassador programmes have become a popular method for enhancing the ethical culture of organisations, as well as further improving the reach and effectiveness of the ethics management function. 


In essence, the Ethics Ambassador Handbook provides the Ethics Officer (or person responsible for ethics in the organisation) with a step-by-step guide to easily implement these initiatives. We believe that this handbook will add value and make the process of instituting an ethics ambassador less complicated.

Congratulations to Dr Paul Vorster and Fatima Rawat for their valuable contribution to the
ethics management field.
