BUILDING AN ETHICS-BASED WORKPLACE CULTURE

Ethics Program Implementation

As you can see by your reading, a lot of energy goes into the implementation of an organizational ethics program. And Lockheed Martin has clearly allotted considerable resources to assuring their program is successful. In this assignment we’ll be focusing on what the company did to ensure the implementation of a successful program that was flexible enough to accommodate the changing needs of the organization.

Address the following questions:

On p. 83 Terris discusses the company’s ethics code. Why is the code considered important to the company’s ethics program?
Discuss the importance of ethics training and employee involvement. What are some of the things Lockheed does to make the training process interesting and worthwhile?
How does Lockheed measure success with respect to ethics in the workplace?
What are some of the things Lockheed does at the operational level to make their ethics program work?

Write a 4- to 5-page paper, not including title page or references page addressing the issue and upload it by the end of this module.
