Scenarios for Team Discussion

2020
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.
 
Our commitment to responsible and ethical business conduct – as a Company and as individuals – underpins our reputation for being a trusted and reliable business. Our success depends on maintaining the standards of conduct that our customers, shareholders, partners and colleagues expect.
 
To do that, we need to have a shared understanding of what’s expected of us all and create an environment in which all employees feel they can ask questions and be supported in making the right decisions.
 
This conversation-based training offers everyone in our business an opportunity to consider some of the challenges we face in our workplace, focusing on those that are particularly relevant to each team.
 
In the scenarios – as in real life – the issues can be complex and the right answer may not always be obvious. Rich and open discussions about what the implications might be for individuals, our customers and the Company will help build the awareness and confidence we all need to raise issues and manage real situations when they occur.
