Business Conduct Training

Ethical business conduct is a fundamental element of what makes BAE Systems a company we are all proud to work for.
We have all worked hard to build a reputation as a responsible and ethical business.
Maintaining our reputation as a reliable, trustworthy business depends on our individual and collective conduct. In order to make the right decisions when faced with complex, ambiguous or difficult situations, we need to be able to recognise the issues, understand our responsibilities and the potential impacts for the business, and respond appropriately.
Many of the decisions we face are complex, and sometimes it feels like there is no right answer. It may be that, on occasion, the single best thing to do is to speak up and ask for help.
The Business Conduct Training is designed to stimulate conversations about the conduct expected and the personal and workplace pressures that may influence decision-making.  Discussing these issues during the training helps maintain an environment in which ethical and behavioural discussions happen as part of our day-to-day working lives.
