Let’s Get Ethical!, Ethical!, I Want To Get Ethical…

Those of you that watch NBC’s “The Office” see some of the best examples of what NOT to do in business every week. They also tackled what not NOT to do in an Ethics Training course. The clip shows some of the worst training skills (reading from the binder, HR-speak, etc.).

It also provides an unusual example of a compliance problem, with Meredith sleeping with a supplier in exchange for a discount.

Unfortunately, the ethical lapses are not limited to the rag-tag Scranton office, but also exist in the main office. The response to Meredith’s confession from the home office?: “I’m not sure that these circumstances warrant any action…this seems like a grey area.”
