Ethics and Compliance Monthly February

February 13, 2019 LRN Corporation

In this month's edition of Ethics & Compliance Monthly, we are unveiling our first research report of the year, the 2019 State of Moral Leadership in Business Report. This report is launching on the heels of the 2019 World Economic Forum in Davos, where trust, purpose and moral action were the major topics of discussion. We've found that the demand for moral leadership is growing stronger, as major ethics and compliance failures continue to appear in headlines.

In addition, we present you with our latest perspectives and top headlines, new product and course releases, and upcoming events. Continue reading below to learn more.




2019 State of Moral Leadership in Business Report

LRN's annual Moral Leadership Report will launch next week. Before it's released to the public, we wanted to provide our Partners with advance access to the report. This year, we share results from interviews with more than 1,100 employees, managers, and executives across 17 different industries. The research confirms that the case for moral leadership is growing stronger, with 87% of respondents saying that the need for moral leadership in business is now greater than ever.





Course Video | Catalyzing Conversations: Board Oversight

We have released a short video clip from our latest Catalyzing Conversations Toolkit: The Tone from the Very Top - Board Oversight of Ethics and Compliance. This toolkit is designed to give boards an opportunity to explore their role in ensuring corporate integrity and ethical conduct through the critical lens of the legal and policy obligations they have in overseeing corporate behavior.
