On this episode of the Principled podcast, host Dr. Marsha Ershaghi Hames interviews Ashlee Foltz, founder of ACF Consulting Solutions and the former chief ethics and compliance officer of Cintas Corp. Ashlee describes her own journey into the ethics and compliance field, her passion for business ethics, and how best to integrate the function into an organization. During the episode, trends in business ethics and drivers for socially responsible companies are discussed, as well as how to advance integrity as part of the business mandate. Ashlee explains how the industry is moving away from a top-down approach based on punishment, and toward a bottom-up approach, where the ethics and compliance program is seen as a competitive advantage and a source of pride.
