When times are tight, training is one of the first functions to go. Typically, the authors argue, this happens because learning officers do not communicate as they should with the executives who make the decisions! not because the C-level executives think training is irrelevant. This no-nonsense book teaches learning executives how to boost communications skills and ensure that management understands the true importance of training: its strategic value.

Almost daily you read about organizations where people fail to behave ethically and the consequences of that failure: bad press, loss of market value, lawsuits, jail time, and even bankruptcy. But fostering ethics in organizations has more benefits than just avoiding negative consequences; one of these is increased job satisfaction. Professionals in the human resource arena are often regarded as the seat of ethical expertise in an organization, but they may not always be equipped to handle ethical issues. That is where this Infoline comes in. It provides a model for understanding ethics, ways to raise awareness of ethics in organizations, and a case study to get the discussion started.
