Reinforcing ethical principles and educating company members about compliance with the law is an ongoing and important responsibility. A company is only as ethical and compliant as its directors, managers and employees. Training is necessary to encourage good behavior, set expectations, demonstrate the company's commitment and inform members of laws that are not common knowledge. Integrity and scruples not only keep us out of court and out of prison, but they are good for business. One study found that companies making "an explicit commitment to doing business ethically" have produced profit/turnover ratios at 18% higher than those without a similar commitment. Conversely, a bad reputation can ruin a business.
