From handling sensitive issues such as discrimination and
harassment to determining compensation plans and reward systems, HR managers
often face serious ethical dilemmas. In this LAP, students will delve into the
issues facing human resources professionals in today’s modern workplace,
gaining an in-depth understanding of how ethics play a role in HR management.
In the activity
Hershey’s: An Ethical Chocolate Company, students will
discover how a real-world human resources department uses an organizational
code of ethics to foster ethical behavior among all employees.
LAPs are comprehensive instructional packages that include all elements of a performance-oriented lesson plan. This LAP includes a student handout (with CopyIT! permission) that includes information about ethics in HR management, a (So What?) discussion of why it's important to learn, ideas (Make it Pay!) for immediate application, and a short (Gray Zone) case addressing ethical issues. The instructor section features a comprehensive discussion guide, complete practice- (short answer) and post-tests (multiple-choice) with descriptive keys, student activities, and more.
As an added bonus, instructors will receive a second version of the student guide—in color and designed specifically for use on electronic devices. This additional student guide is easier for instructors to share with students via email, shared drive, or learning management system and easier for students to view and read electronically.

Bring your discussions to life with our PowerPoint presentation featuring a broad range of graphics and special effects to help keep students interested. This professionally produced presentation consists of 29 slides.
"Great job. The most effective part of this LAP was the focus on the legal aspects of human resources."
