Though procurement departments are largely responsible for selecting and managing a company’s suppliers, other employees of a company frequently interact with those same suppliers and most of them don’t know anything about procurement ethics. This leaves those companies vulnerable to the large number of ethical traps that can get even the most honest of business people into bad situations. A new online Express Course, “15 Rules For Ethical Supplier Interaction,” from Next Level Purchasing will comprehensively teach all employees, not just the procurement department, to identify and avoid ethical supplier interaction traps- even the most subtle and tricky ones.
