Event Description

Ethical behavior is not a destination it is a journey with twists and turns, and bumps in the road. We are faced with ethical dilemmas every day. Do I speed to make it to a meeting? Do I call in sick just because I need a break? When does “helping my child with their homework” become “doing it for them?”  Most CPAs are ethical most of the time but staying ethical is hard. And it gets harder when we are under stress. Stress saps our strength and our will, leaving us exhausted. In addition, COVID has left many people working from home so they do not have their normal support network to help them decide to do the right thing.  Smart organizations recognize the connection between extreme stress, burnout, and ethical lapses.  (LIVE VIDEOCONFERENCE)
