Developing a new Code of Ethics
Join us for the first meeting of our revamped Business Ethics Network (BEN) programme, where we will be discussing Codes of Ethics and their development.
This meeting will cover questions such as:
- Who should be included in the gathering of different perspectives?
- Which key messages do you want the Code to get across?
- What does the Code need to contain?
- How can the Code be made accessible to different employee groups and wider stakeholders?
Robert Smith, Director, Business Compliance and Ethics at Serco, will present on the journey so far at his company as they near the end of a year's worth of planning and thinking around how to best engage relevant stakeholders in the process to ensure the Code will engage staff throughout the business.
Participants in the meeting will also be encouraged to share their own experiences and good practices in an open discussion held under the Chatham House Rule.

What are Business Ethics Network (BEN) meetings?
Our network meetings, which happen regularly throughout the year, are the pillars around which the community is built. These invitation-only events are usually focused on a specific topic and are led by a member or members of the network who candidly share their experience and pose probing questions for group discussion.
All network meetings are hosted and facilitated under the Chatham House Rule by the IBE.
These meetings are both practitioner-led and practitioner-focused, with invitations only extended to those responsible for the ethics and compliance programme in their organisation (which must have more than 250 employees). Invitees are, however, free to recommend alternates / subject-matter experts from their organisation to attend either with them, or in their place. Registrations are limited to 2 participants per organisation per meeting.
Network meetings are a unique opportunity to join the conversation to discuss the challenges, issues and successes of embedding ethical values within your organisation, with your peers.
To book your place you will need to set up your online profile; please request to set your password - you will then receive a link to do so via email. Once you have set your password you will be able to login for the first time, set your preferences and register for the meeting.
Please note that places are limited to those within the network however, as a network member, if you are not able to attend and would like to transfer your place to another member of your team, please email email@example.com.
Once you have registered you will receive a link to join the meeting via GoToWebinar - this link is unique to you and shouldn't be shared further as this may stop you being able to participate when the time comes.
To encourage frank discussion amongst participants and the open sharing of ideas and experiences, all IBE events take place under the Chatham House Rule unless stated otherwise.
