Ethics Training

New Employee Orientation (NEO)

On the first and third Monday of each month, we provide new employees with an overview of the City Ethics Policies. Participants engage with scenarios, such as those below, to challenge their understanding of the policies. In addition, attendees learn why City employees are held to a higher ethical standard than City residents, what obligations and protections they have as whistleblowers, and how they can be proactive in avoiding conflicts of interest.

Internal Flyers

Each month, we create flyers, such as those below, to promote awareness either of a particular component of the ethics policy or preventing fraud, waste, and abuse. These materials run on the City's electronic message boards and as part of the screen saver function of City-issued computers. They also appear in City Week and City Connect, formerly known as the City Manager's report.

Training Videos

The video linked below serves as a quick reminder for employees of the City Ethics Policies and why they matter. We have also developed a series of videos for internal use to address the most frequent finding we make during audits: incomplete or absent standard operating policies.
