What You See Is NOT What You Get: The Myths of Ethics in Internal Audit
Level : Intermediate
Ethics represents a cornerstone of internal auditing, not only as a profession but also as providing assurance of an organization’s ethical practices. In this session, participants will:
be able to distinguish between the actual truths and myths about business ethics: (e.g.. the code of conduct supports ethical behavior; the compliance program helps the organization to become more ethical; whistle blowing tools reduce the risks of unethical behavior)
explore the tools (from behavior economics and neuroscience), how to better audit these myths and mitigate those risks;
develop ideas to help neuroscience become more ethical;
develop critical thinking about ethics in the organizations;
develop the sense of professional skepticism, that internal auditor need, in the other topics of internal audit.
