Advice & Guidance

The IBE’s mission is to promote high standards of business behaviour based on ethical values. We can share a wealth of practical experience in embedding business ethics and can offer guidance to organisations on a range of issues.

As a registered educational charity, we play the role of advisor and critical friend to organisations.

The IBE recognises that each organisation is different and has its own approach to ethics.

We are available to offer support on any aspect of your programme. Whether it’s just a brief phone call for advice, or more extensive formal support on the assessment, development, implementation and embedding of your ethics programme, our experienced team is always happy to help. 
Commitment to ethical standards at Board level is critical for any organisation if values are to become embedded. Senior leadership tone and example sets the expectations amongst employees for behavioural standards.

By working with organisations, we also ensure that our research and working knowledge are based on the most current thinking and, as such, we are able to recognise and share good practice. 

Engaging staff and embedding ethical behaviour can be difficult. Whatever your approach to ethics, it is important to identify the most effective initiatives to embed ethics in decision making and mitigate the risks your organisation may face. 

If you would like to explore how the IBE might help with any aspect of an existing or future ethics programme, please contact us.

What companies say

'The IBE provided valuable input during the development of our compliance programme. Their creative assistance with the communications and training materials meant that these were fun, entertaining and to the point. Their feedback on our code of conduct included relevant benchmark data to ensure we were consistent with the best practice in our sector. Most importantly, as a trusted adviser in addressing compliance issues, I have found that the IBE brings discretion, wisdom and sensible practical advice.'
