CII Guidance: Ethically Resilient Culture »
We live in an increasingly volatile world where the pace of
change is speeding up and its consequences are transmitted with
immediacy and globally - all the faster when it's bad news.
Customers, employees, regulators and shareholders now look
beyond financial results and growth prospects. They want to
have confidence that the company they have a relationship with does

resilience. This guidance looks at what constitutes a resilient
ethical culture and how it might be sustained.
