Certification / Company Secretaries - Module 8 - Company Secretaries Leading through integrity
Description
Course highlights
Integrity means the respect of a consistent framework of ethical or moral principles based upon a core group of values, beyond formal codes of conduct and regulations. As scandals have decimated share prices and Board credibility, integrity became one of the critical elements of corporate governance that companies are looking to reinforce. As a result, the Board’s approach to integrity has to spread outward from the Boardroom in order to permeate the whole culture of an organization. Indeed, it is more than ever required to be considered nowadays by a Company Secretary.
