About this event

Organisational culture, management philosophy and ethics in business each have an impact on how well an organisation performs in the long term. No matter the size, or industry of an organisation, business ethics are one of the most important aspects of long-term success.

There has been endless examples of ethical violations in which environments were irreparably damaged, lives were lost and businesses were dismantled by regulators. As local authorities explore different options for delivering their services – via LATC or plain vanilla outsourcing, local authorities need to be aware of the threats to ethical compliance and safeguard against those threats. This workshop is specifically develop for local authorities to bring this 'hot topic' to local authority employees, management and those who have direct procurement.
