This 4 credit hour course is taught by Garland Granger, CIA, CPA, CFE.  This course helps with the ever-growing social aspects of companies, and how to keep them from becoming destructive to a business, not only financially, but also in terms of behavior. 

In this course we review the most recent COSO Framework which lists the Control Environment as the first component and integrity as the first step in achieving a good workplace environment. We then explore how to establish and control a culture of integrity from the top to the bottom of the organization, discover how to communicate the desires and expectations of the owners/management to promote a win-win situation for all employees, and identify how a poorly controlled culture can negatively affect both internal controls and fraud.

Then we explore how to establish a positive culture that creates a great work environment for all employees, discover how to monitor and evaluate potential new employees as well as existing employees for integrity and honesty, identify how to deal with a breach of integrity that might harm the organizational policy, explore the biology of humans in order to understand the needs of all employees in order for them to rise to their greatest potential and impact the organization in a positive manner, and discuss a variety of cases that address issues and circumstances that apply to the concepts discussed in the seminar.

To be completely honest, this was a long four hours. First on-line class I've taken where there were zero slides, and the speaker just talked into the camera--reading from the text and taking a lot of words to make his points. I did not enjoy or find the class helpful. My apologies if the criticism is too harsh, but it was just not an effective presentation.

This course provides a lot of information for creating a positive culture and goes into the impacts of a bad culture vs a positive culture in the workplace.

Content of this was good. I did not enjoy the presentation manner. The quiz had many, many typographical and grammar errors. This was very distracting.
