As a function, HR has a role to play in developing talent and protecting employees. But it's also responsible for disciplining and dismissing staff, as well as implementing and enforcing top-down policies. Does this put it in an ethically precarious position?  

This week on the podcast, Ross D is joined by James and guest Gary Cookson of EPIC HR to discuss: 

  • what 'ethics' mean in the workplace
  • the role of HR as the moral heart of organisations
  • the ability of HR to foster ethical behaviour
