The theme of this year’s training focuses on three factors that influence our behavior; Workplace pressure, Opportunity, and Rationalization. The experience of workplace pressure can cause a person to believe that doing the wrong thing is necessary. This provides a window of opportunity through which the shortcut or misconduct can occur. Rationalization is how the individual affirms to themselves that the bad behavior was warranted. This year's training gives us an opportunity to have meaningful conversations about how we can recognize pressure-based concerns, address them responsibly, and work through the situation with a spirit of integrity.
