Overview

Delve into corporate culture


Every organization has a unique set of beliefs, ethics, attitudes, and personality. This means that each company has its own corporate culture, something that is vital to establish to ensure every employee knows the core values and vision of the organization.

On this four-week course from Bloomsbury Academic and authors V. Ann Paulins and Julie L. Hillery, you’ll delve into corporate culture to understand what it is, how it affects business decisions, and how it can be used to promote productivity and a positive company image.

You’ll evaluate how a company mission statement reflects the company values and corporate culture, and identify the relationship between corporate culture and corporate social responsibility.

With this understanding, you’ll be able to explain how these practices affect decision-making within a business.


Explore ethics in the workplace relating to fashion and retail


Finally, you’ll identify the role of ethics in the workplace. You’ll explore how ethical decisions can affect workplace positivity and productivity and start to unpack the variety of ethical workplace issues relevant to the fashion and retail industry.
