It’s long been clear that organizations with strong ethical cultures perform better than those without. In addition to the multitude of positive impacts a strong ethical culture provides, these organizations will also typically experience less fraud and misconduct. However, to achieve maximum results, a strong ethical culture must focus on accountability and include robust fraud prevention measures.
Ethical accountability takes time and effort to build, but the rewards of fostering the right culture in an organization are measurable. Fewer fraud incidents, for example, can be demonstrated by hard numbers. A strong code of conduct is a great start, but it’s critical to have a comprehensive ethics program that fosters accountability.
