    Dr Paolo Casadio
    Head, Centre for University of London International Programmes, HELP University

    The recent financial crisis has brought back under the spotlights important themes as integrity and ethics. In the pre-crisis era integrity was viewed as a necessary external constraint ‘imposed’ to business and limiting profits’ potential. Nowadays, we are heading toward a new idea and a new model of business, in particular in the financial business. It is essential to reaffirm rules, procedures closely inspired to ethics and morality. It is even more important that these values are embodied in the new human capital and inspire people working in financial industry. This will re-establish trust and a constructive environment needed for a new phase of growth in the economics and in the financial system.

    11.30 am Panel Discussion: Improving Integrity in the Workplace

    Integrity in the workplace is very important. The way your organisation conducts business with the public and the way your employees represent your business matters. To improve integrity in the workplace, specific actions must be taken. While the vast majority of employees are honest, everyone can make mistakes and what they feel may only be a "white lie" may be interpreted by a customer as something much more insidious.

    Hear how the leaders manage integrity crisis.
