Evaluate the extent to which ethical learning in the workplace should condition employees to conform to the organisations existing policies Ethics provide the ground rules that determine how people think about what is right and wrong and then how they act. Ethical qualities are honesty, fairness, respect for others, promise keeping and trustworthiness. There are many benefits of ethical learning in the workplace. One is that it reduces the amount of disputes between employees which enables them to conform to the organisations existing policies. By using ethical learning in the workplace employees will feel more independent enabling them to work with and improve on the policies that have already been put into action in the workplace. Ethical learning involves building on employee’s current knowledge and finding out what they already know and what they will need to learn in order to comply with current policies. Employees can learn how to make ethical decisions in order to work with existing policies. By using online tests employees can see how they would cope with difficult potential problems that could arise in the workplace. Group work could also aid ethical learning as discussions on how one another would deal with predicaments that could arise may be helpful. References
