What would happen if you leaked your company’s confidential information to a competitor just because you had a crush on someone at the opposing firm?

This was one of the topics discussed at the Open Ethics Mock Trial held by the Korea East-West Power Company (EWP) on Tuesday.

The event took place at the Dangjin Coal-Fired Power Complex in South Chungcheong.

The event has been hosted since last year to broaden employees’ understanding of ethical business management by having them role-play different scenarios and characters, including defendants, prosecutors and lawyers.

During the event, the company’s CEO Chang Joo-ok played the judge. He explained the rules that should guide employees in sticky situations and encouraged employees to be more aware of ethical issues.

EWP has received the top grade in the policy assessment conducted by the Anti-Corruption and Civil Rights Commission for three consecutive years, since 2012.
