Our Vision

To promote ethical leadership for sustainable business growth.

Our Mission

Our Values

Our core values include respect, compliance, transparency, trust and profitability as outlined below:

Our Core Values


Borrowing from the holy bible scriptures; “my people perish for lack of knowledge”; at EIZ we believe in the continuous improvement of the conduct of humanity through a needs aligned training and development program.


In our pursuit of best business practices we believe in a corporate culture that recognizes its stakeholders’ values and admires their worthy abilities, qualities and achievements.


Corporate systems, procedures and business legislature become effective business tools only through stakeholder compliance. At EIZ, we value corporate compliance as a sustainable business growth enabler, hence our tagline – fearlessly ethical.


At EIZ, we thrive on honesty and openness in our everyday business conduct. This value is clearly captured by the famous Dalai Lama in his famous quote “A lack of transparency results in distrust and a deep sense of insecurity.”


Because stakeholder trust builds workmanship and reliability; it also builds profitable brands. It is our primary objective to promote trust amongst our corporate stakeholders through effective business ethics interventions.


It is every business’ objective to yield a benefit or financial gain. Through our culture defining ethics initiatives, we are committed to building profitable organizations for economic and societal gain.
