It’s becoming all too familiar. Turn on the news and we hear another corporation or company has been caught engaging in some sort of misconduct. Be it corruption, fraud, harassment or some other form of misconduct, the bottom line is “misconduct is disruptive and expensive.” One event can wipe out months of profitability, damage company reputation and result in replacement of key personnel.
