Ethics and integrity are part of one’s moral judgments about right and wrong. All of us, from employee to top manager, are confronted with moral decision making in the course of our lives. Recent scandals, such VW’s Diesel Gate, show how unethical behaviour may harm a carefully built reputation of organisations. To create a corporate ethically responsible culture, it is therefore crucial to train people on a regular basis. The “To BE or not to BE?” Game is an educational game designed to train employees of industrial companies in moral judgment and decision making in a way that is both engaging and effective.
With the help of the game trainees will:
- Become aware of the importance of business ethics,
- Be able to recognize the moral dimensions of everyday business decisions,
- Develop a better understanding of one’s moral compass
- Develop a better understanding of how to deal with moral dilemmas
The game is designed for professionals working in industry with a training need in business ethics and corporate responsibility.
