Ethics Codes: Describing Expected Ethical Behavior

 

Ethics Codes are Recommended

You don’t have to be a big business to stray (intentionally or unintentionally) into unethical business behavior. That’s why ethics codes are recommended for any size business these days.

Do you have a code of ethics?

Does it support the ethics code for your industry, which you are also bound by?

Does it describe the ethical behavior that your organization expects?

Are employees held accountable for following it?
