Nowadays consumers have become more aware of ethical business practices than before. Because they can easily access information about businesses and the way they perform business. Consumers are immensely conscious of this information and they decide to invest their money accordingly. Because of this easy access to information, individuals have become very conscious of ethical businesses and their impact. Staying away from unethical business practices not only helps to develop a good reputation but also keeps the business safe from lawsuits or litigation.

Unethical business practices and money scandals can result in a huge loss in profit leading to a decrease in employee motivation and ultimately bankruptcy. Fulfilling and maintaining productivity and quality can develop a suitable reputation and keep a healthy code of ethics for the business. For all these reasons ethics training programs are essential for a successful business.
