BC Business Students Host Ethics Workshop
Members of Benedictine College’s Students In Free Enterprise (SIFE) organization recently met with area insurance agents to discuss ethics and the insurance business. A team of six students, along with BC business professor Dr. John Bunch, presented their annual ethics workshop for 15 insurance agents in Atchison, Kan., on Feb. 8. The workshop provided the agents with continuing education credit necessary for them to maintain their insurance licenses.
Dr. Bunch led the meeting while SIFE members Mitch Fiala, Casey Lemke, Megan Denny, Dack Cain, Katie Volmer, and Will Juelich helped the agents interact through small group discussions. Each group discussed how they would deal with various case studies regarding business ethics. The small group activities allowed for a lot of interaction between the agents. The workshop used tests prior to beginning and at the conclusion to gauge how much the agents learned and how the presentation affected the way they looked at insurance ethics.
“It was one of the more interesting classes I’ve had because of the hands-on discussion and participation, instead of just sitting in your seat,” said agent Robin Jones.
