Ethical Systems offers a range of services for companies. We invite you to explore an introduction to these services below and contact our Interim Executive Director Noel Boyland to learn more and discuss your initiative.

 

Executive Education Behavioral Science and Ethics Intervention

Ethical Systems can provide custom education sessions for your executive team.  Sessions range from 1 hour to all day programs during which executives can learn about the social science of ethics.  We teach across a range of topics including:

  • the business case for ethics; 
  • cognitive biases and ethical decision-making; 
  • behavioral ethics research and findings; 
  • workplace formal and informal systems; and
  • a framework for ethical organizational culture

The sessions are interactive workshops, including case studies, group discussion, and lectures on research findings.  

Behavioral science can be a powerful way for your company to create a choice architecture that enables more ethical behavior.  For example, nudging for ethics has been shown to help people make more ethical decisions. Our researchers can help you design interventions and systems that use behavioral science, data, and rigorously generated evidence to advance the goals of your ethics, compliance, or risk management efforts.  

We will develop targeted experimentation tailored to your company’s needs, measuring their impact on your organization’s goals -- testing what works, and what doesn’t advance the outcomes you care about.
