Jul. 09 /CSRwire/ - DES MOINES, Iowa - VisionPoint Productions, a leader in development of video-based training programs, today announces its important new program, A.C.T. with Integrity: Real Situations for Discussion proves to be timely and useful. This new program provides a vital grounding in business ethics, an important complement to any organization's legal compliance and employment law training.
A.C.T. with Integrity provides business ethics training that can serve as a vital complement to any business practices and legal compliance program. The video has been designed in a modular format that consists of twelve "discussion-trigger" case studies. Examples include possible conflict of interest; inquiries from regulatory agencies; software copyright infringement; and destroying documents in violation of company policy. After each scenario, there is an opportunity for the facilitator to guide employees through an analysis of the issues involved and a discussion of actions that could be taken to resolve each concern and maintain the organization's integrity.
Unethical behavior and legal violations by business, government and professions have been much in the news. People who received compliance training have still failed their organizations and themselves. "Most legal compliance training teaches do's and don'ts," observes Paul Shay, Vice President of VisionPoint. "That is an important part, but still only part, of a complete training program. Effective ethics training can communicate values, foster thinking and influence behavior in order to improve openness and reduce the risk of inappropriate or illegal acts. If you don't have an ethics component in your training, you are not fully protecting your company and its reputation."
The video includes both a narrated version and a vignettes-only version of the program with multiple agendas--allowing the trainer flexibility to use what's best for their organization. The program also includes a Facilitator Guide, Reproducible Participant Materials and a Reproducible Self-Study Workbook. The new SMART-START(TM) Business Ethics Meeting Opener Integrity at Work is also available and is designed to strengthen the training message.
VisionPoint produces business training programs in a wide range of important and urgent workplace topics. These programs include the new business ethics program A.C.T. with Integrity: Real Situations for Discussion, the new harassment and discrimination program It's Not Just About Sex Anymore, the comprehensive six-part employment law series Legal Briefs, the best-selling program on respect and diversity M.E.E.T. on Common Ground, and many more.
VisionPoint was created by the spin-off of American Media's production arm. Through many years at both companies, the VisionPoint team has produced hundreds of custom and off-the-shelf training programs in video and other media, winning nearly 100 awards and creating many corporate training best sellers.
