HR Ethics

HRCI: HR Ethics Certificate

Human resources professionals are charged with supporting the success of their organizations in ways that are ethical and socially responsible. Ethical organizations must consider questions about what is right and fair in all decision-making processes. Because HR professionals are involved in designing and enforcing policies that impact the people who work in an organization, they play an especially powerful role in shaping the ethical culture. In the HR ethics certificate offered at Loyola University New Orleans, students will explore the relationship between human resources and creating an ethical workplace.
