Session Topic:

From Watchdog to Weathervane – Knowing When the Wind’s Blowing the Wrong Way, and How to Change Direction

Relying solely on whether people’s behaviour is within the rules leads to “ethical fading” – an erosion of ethics that often starts at the top of an organisation and works its way down. The best strategy for a strong pro-integrity culture is to combine compliance instruments to control unethical behaviour with a pro-integrity approach to encouraging ethical behaviour.

Auditor-General John Ryan will talk about how embedding a culture of integrity can help organisations withstand any conditions.
