Business Ethics and Culture

Our Business Ethics and Culture programme

The aim of this programme is to support organisations that are willing to go beyond compliance to fulfil their social purpose. We encourage them to define and live their corporate values, transforming them into action, both within their workplaces and business remit and beyond.

We plan to achieve this through:

  • Events that provide inspiration, motivation and mutual support
  • Identifying business ethics champions within organisations
  • Providing values-based, Code of Ethics and social purpose training and support for champions and decision-makers
  • Working together with other organisations on business ethics initiatives and providing sponsorship opportunities
  • Connecting organisations with business ethics and culture shift expertise
  • Signposting relevant resources
  • Sharing success stories and examples of best practice

Are you a business ethics champion or could you become one?

We’re aiming to identify 50 business ethics champions at organisations across Reading and the surrounding area and to support them to make an even bigger positive difference.

  • Are you passionate about genuinely helping to build a value-based ethical culture inside your organisation?
  • Do you want to ensure that your organisation values support its social purpose?
  • Or are you simply frustrated by your company’s lack of focus into living its values and actively applying them?

If any of these sound like you, please get in touch

In the meantime, have a look at our Code of Ethics template and guidelines and more of the resources available to you here.
