Ethics Education and Training Programs Can Assist Corporations Withstand Economic Downturn

Pompano Beach, FL, February 28, 2008 --(PR.com)-- Businesses and professionals who adhere to ethical values and standards during uncertain economic times will achieve long-term success. Although making ethically-questionable decisions during financially difficult times may produce immediate results, businesses and professionals stand to loose their ethical standing to be successful with the improvement of the economy. One way businesses and professionals can proactively promote ethical behavior during an economic downturn is to invest in ethical education and training programs. The Michael L. Buckner Law Firm today announced the offering of entertaining, hands-on ethics education and training workshops for business professionals to address the current economic environment.

The Michael L. Buckner Law Firm’s ethics workshops addresses recent high-profile cases involving deception, scandal, and crime in organizations across the country. The series consists of separate training programs, which are customized to meet the specific needs of businesses and professionals. The programs are delivered for clients in private sessions. Firm attorney Michael L. Buckner, who will apply his experience investigating alleged NCAA rules violations and educating lawyers, administrators, and other professionals on ethical issues, will conduct the workshops.

Programs can be conducted in a variety of formats (e.g., on-site, online) and lengths (e.g., 3-hour workshop, full-day/multiple-day training session). The series provides clients with a complement to an existing in-house ethics and compliance program. The Michael L. Buckner Law Firm also can develop ethics training sessions to assist clients with satisfying continuing education requirements.

Mr. Buckner, a licensed attorney and private investigator, advises organizations on compliance, investigation, ethics, training, and management enhancement issues. Mr. Buckner is author of The ABCs of Ethics: A Resource for Leaders, Managers and Professionals and currently is working on a leadership book. Mr. Buckner is admitted to practice before the United States Supreme Court and all federal and state courts in Florida. Mr. Buckner earned his bachelor’s degree in international relations and social sciences and communication from the University of Southern California and a law degree from Florida State University.

“The typical ethics seminar will cover a few rules and what a person can and cannot do under such rules,” observes Buckner. “Our ethics workshops assist organizations with decreasing unethical incidents by identifying the values and behavior of an organization, as well as opening communication concerning the stated values and behavior.”

The Michael L. Buckner Law Firm assists organizations with addressing allegations of non-compliance with regulations, ethical misconduct, and academic fraud, as well as providing solutions to professional development needs. The Michael L. Buckner Law Firm also provides legal advice to clients in the areas of appellate law, compliance & ethics, due diligence, education law, governance, leadership & teamwork, government law, internal investigations, professional development, and sports law.
