Over ninety percent of people in the workplace make unethical decisions. Of the accounting profession, 43 percent are honest at work.

On Tuesday evening from 6 to 7:30 p.m. in Kepner-Hall room 40, Beta Alpha Psi and the Student Center for the Public Trust invited guest speaker, Gaylen Hansen to share his experience regarding ethics. Hansen is currently the Chairman of the National Association of State Boards of Accountancy and has almost 40 years of experience in accounting.

Throughout the course of the speech, Hansen discussed the importance of ethics, ethical issues in business, improper accounting practices, and many other aspects involving ethics in the workplace.

Following the opening lecture, Hansen passed out six of ten true story cases in which ethics were violated in the workplace. Audience members worked in groups to discover which method would be the most ethical solution for resolving the issue at hand.

Resolutions to the cases were revealed and discussed further in depth. The cases proved to be helpful to students by allowing for them to have a grasp for ethical conflict and how to resolve a similar issue in the future.

Look for the full story on guest speaker Gaylen Hansen in the next print issue of the Mirror, on stands Monday, Oct. 29!
