You can manage online ethics!
Communicating and working online enables us to hide behind a digital device. But that doesn’t mean that rules don’t exist or can be forgotten. There is a range of standards and practices that should be adhered to when working in a digital environment. If you are unsure what those are, or what is acceptable and professional, then this course will help explain and interpret expectations. Download course brochure.
