Workplace ethics discussed on Fridays during ‘Donuts & Dilemmas’

CohnReznick — a nationwide firm offering audit, accounting, and tax services, succession planning, and more — will host the first in a series of three Donuts and Dilemmas discussions during fall semester at 9 a.m. Fridays.

The hour-long Penn State Smeal College of Business events provide students with opportunities to talk with company representatives about real ethical challenges in the workplace.

The two other companies that will host "Donuts and Dilemmas" events are Trunk Club, scheduled for Sept. 29, and Ricoh USA, slated for Oct. 2. Trunk Club is an online, personalized men’s clothing service. Ricoh USA specializes in office imaging equipment, production print solutions, document management systems, and IT services.

Prior to the events, students will receive an invitation to RSVP. Seating will be limited, so reservations are required.

“'Donuts and Dilemmas' provides students a small, informal setting to discuss a wide range of ethical dilemmas that they could encounter in the professional workplace,” said Jennifer Eury, Smeal’s director of honor and integrity. “The company representatives share personal stories, encourage students to ask questions, and highlight best practices for navigating ethical dilemmas in business.”
