Deviant behavior in the workplace undermines an organizations culture and puts them at risk of loss due to decreased productivity, property damage and even fraud. When an organization understands the causes of deviant behavior and commits to proactive steps that empower its people to behave ethically, the organization can reduce incidents of deviant behavior, create a more positive work environment, and improve its bottom line. During this course, we will explore how to build an ethical culture to mitigate deviant behavior and prevent fraud.


The major topics that will be covered in this class include…

  • Fraud detection
  • Fraud prevention
  • Ethical challenges in organization culture
  • Common examples of fraud in the workplace
