Ethical business dilemmas discussed at Chamber/CISI workshop

Date: Friday 29 March 2019

What should a manager do if a member of their sales team has used a competitor’s pitch book to win a tender? Should a senior person be promoted if it is discovered that they lied on their CV over 30 years ago?

These and other real-life ethical dilemmas were discussed at a workshop jointly organised by Isle of Man Chamber of Commerce and sponsored by the Chartered Institute for Securities & Investment (CISI)

Simon Culhane Chartered FCSI, Chief Executive of CISI, delivered the ‘Integrity At Work’ interactive workshop which was attended by 100 guests from a broad cross-section of the Island’s business community. During the event attendees used individual voting machines and had to decide on how they would respond when faced by a number of different ethical challenges.

Mr Culhane said that the strong turnout and active participation through the seminar demonstrated the high level of importance of integrity and ethics for Manx professionals. 

Rebecca George, Chief Executive, Isle of Man Chamber of Commerce, thanked Simon for leading the workshop, CISI for sponsoring the event, and all the guests who supported the event which was held at the Claremont Hotel.

The Chartered Institute for Securities & Investment is the leading professional body for securities, investment, wealth and financial planning professionals.
