Rotary District 5190 sponsors business ethics forum


As part of their 2014 conference, Rotary District 5190 and Wells Fargo are inviting business owners to Successthics: How Ethics = Business Success, a Robust Business Forum Open to Business, Professional and Community Leaders. The event will be held at John Ascuaga’s Nugget on Friday, May 16 beginning at 8:30am. Continental breakfast and lunch are included and the program should end about 2pm. The cost is $49.00.

Keynote speaker and forum moderator Michael Josephson will guide attendees in a discussion on ethics in the workplace. Learn how to incorporate ethics into your mission statement, values, vision, job description, performance reviews, etc.

In today’s workplace, human capital is central to most of the world’s great companies – managing it effectively becomes job one – yet, it is much subtler than classic forms of capital. How do you get the most out of your most valuable resource? One key is business ethics, an essential driver of productivity. The benefits are irresistible. At very low cost, business ethics boosts output, promotes recruitment and retention, and reduces misconduct, employee fraud, and absenteeism.

Business ethics is one of the best investments you can make.

During a portion of the program, Michael Josephson will be joined by a panel of highly regarded business and community leaders, including Michonne Ascuaga, Chair of Washoe K-12 Education Foundation, Norm Dianda, Founder of Q & D Construction, Helen Lindholm, CEO of St. Mary’s Hospital, Chad Osorno, President, Nevada Business & Government Banking, Wells Fargo and Mary Simmons, Vice President NVEnergy

Speaker and moderator Michael Josephson is a former law professor and businessman who founded the Josephson Institute in the name of his parents, and serves as its president on a volunteer basis. Often featured in the news media, Mr. Josephson has become one of the nation’s most sought-after ethicists. He serves as Josephson Institute president without salary. The Institute has conducted programs for over 100,000 influential leaders including public officials, school administrators, military and police officers, journalists, senior corporate and nonprofit executives, and judges and lawyers.
