Following the outbreak of COVID-19, the world is facing unprecedented levels of uncertainty. In this climate of fear and anxiety, our ability to make good decisions is being weakened.

Businesses of all sizes are seeing their markets disappear before their eyes, they face rapidly escalating costs, supply chain disruptions and multiple challenges in responding to the changing landscape of employee well-being, safety and job security.

The Ethics Centre’s deep expertise in ethics, ethical decision making, leadership development and ethics-based strategy, offer organisations and their leaders the critical support they require when navigating the ethical minefield that extends before them.

In deciding how to respond to the new and emerging challenges as a response to the COVID-19 crisis, leaders of organisations are having to address multiple ethical questions. Here are some of the challenges many are telling us that they’re grappling with:

Reviewing staff entitlements and obligations, and their implications

Identifying and responding to vulnerable customers, clients and staff

Deciding to provide pro bono offerings for the public good

Supporting, retaining and developing staff in a virtual new world order

Addressing workforce mobility, critical access and equity issues

Supporting vulnerable and strategic elements of the supply chain
