E-Learning on Ethics and Integrity Management
The project on Ethics and Integrity Management in the public service took the first important step towards its implementation on September 12, 2011. The Royal Institute of Management (RIM) and the ACC hosted a training session which introduced the prospective administrators of the project to its IT platform and facilitation of group discussions on ethics. It was interesting to note that most of the participants were actually discussing the civil service code of conduct for the first time.
The project is a collective effort of the Royal Civil Service Commission, RIM and the ACC towards fostering an ethical culture and behavioral change in the public service. A number of e-learning modules on ethics and integrity will be rolled out across all public agencies to afford online individual or group learning (initially 20,000). Ethical training by means of e-Learning brings the Bhutanese ethical management in line with international best practice.
The high attendance at the training session at the RIM, 44 human resources managers from 10 ministries, and 25 agencies (including parliament, judiciary & constitutional bodies), illustrates the enthusiasm and commitment of the primary players, which is crucial for the success of the project. The participants had never used e-learning before the training session.
This program is expected to be rolled out in December 2011. It is funded by DANIDA and the Global Advice Network is its consultant.
