Join us for our June membership meeting, Business Ethics - Appropriate Decision Making, presented by Joyce Chastain, SPHR, on Wednesday, June 11, 2014 from 11:30am - 1:00pm at the Capital City Country Club.

Are business ethics just a matter of opinion? Are they rules that govern how we behave in a group or business setting? How do you know what’s expected?

This session answers those questions and provides guidelines for communicating business ethics in a clear method to all organizational stakeholders.

Specific areas to be covered during this session are:
  • The history of and necessity for ethics in the workplace
  • How workplace culture governs ethics
  • The changing (evolving) nature of ethics
  • Unconscious bias

While human resources professionals may not have sole responsibility for guiding the business ethics of their organization, they can be a strategic contributor when armed with the information about why ethics matter.

Attendees will be provided with a clear understanding of the strategic value to the organization of a clearly defined set of business ethics and their role in its establishment. Examples will be provided of organizations that have flourished where deep seated values have been evidenced by their principles, strategies and practices and organizations that have failed when ethics were not clearly defined and practiced.

"5 for 5" Program
Big Bend SHRM’s 2014 goals for Workforce Readiness and Community Relations will include a special project called “5 for 5.” The project kick-off took place at our May membership meeting when special guest Beth Burns, Co-Founder of the Chelsea House, providing insight as to how BBHRM members can assist displaced women and single-mom families with much needed consultation on applying and interviewing for jobs in greater Leon County.

As we hear more about the mission of Chelsea House and the “5 for 5” program, BBSHRM members will be invited to donate funds to help provide a safe home for women who are getting back on their feet. Your generous donations help sponsor expenses for daily/weekly/monthly living, depending on the needs of these women in crisis. Please plan to bring your donations with you to the June meeting.
