Ascentis announces the addition of HROffice Ethics Trainer to the HROffice product line.

Ascentis’ VP of Sales and Marketing, Mike Hayes, says, “Enron. MCI. Martha Stewart. You’ve seen the headlines. Companies are paying large penalties for unethical and illegal behavior. These scandals have spawned a wave of new legislation that has placed added responsibilities on the shoulders of HR executives at companies of all sizes. In addition to helping our customers remain compliant, we’ve created HROffice Ethics Trainer. HROffice Ethics Trainer offers organizations a complete one-stop ethics program to ensure all employees are meeting Sarbanes-Oxley and U.S. Sentencing Guidelines and Exchange requirements.”

HROffice Ethics Trainer includes (1) Code of Conduct training as required by new U.S. Sentencing Guidelines, and (2) Code of Conduct communication as required by NYSE and NASDAQ exchanges. Topics covered include: conflicts of interest, confidential information, use of company resources, accurate books and records, and preventing harassment.

HROffice Ethics Trainer requires low bandwidth and desktop requirements and was created to be easily deployed. Customers receive customizable launch materials for their ethics training rollout. Employees take the training online at their desk when it’s convenient for them and receive a certificate upon completion. Administrators of the program will have access to a secure website where they can download a variety of reports and see who has completed training.
