So, where are we heading in this lesson?

As people professionals we must role model ethical behaviours, integrity, and professional values and principles. But how do we consistently and visibly demonstrate this?

In this lesson we explore how, as people professionals, ethical role modelling requires us to use our principles and values as the foundation for our actions and decisions and what this looks like when applied to our daily practice.

We'll get you to reflect on whether there is a process within your sphere of influence which could be more transparent and if so, what changes would resolve the problem. We’ll also get you to think about the CIPD principles; 'Work matters, people matter and professionalism matters' and in which of these you can act as an ethical role model. Remember to make notes in your interactive workbook.

We also encourage you to take part in the community forum which provides the collaborative space to share your thinking and ideas with others. In this lesson we'll ask you to think about the ways in which you have been successful in modelling ethical behaviour and to share your best tip on the forum.

Review what others have posted to gain wider understanding on the theme from people professionals working in different contexts. Support the learning community by reading the contributions of others, 'liking' those you find helpful and add your unique reflections to the conversation.
