Our actions affects not only ourselves, but also those around us. Many professional decisions involves ethics. Without transparency, trust and honesty we undermine our own integrity. If we use shoddy materials or workmanship on the job, we can jeopardize the safety of others.
Questions of morality and ethics can be found at all levels of society. Ethical behavior is equally important in the workplace as it is in our personal lives. Everywhere business is conducted, ethics matters as ethical leadership is the only way for good governance.
A successful business depends on the trust of various parties – Employees, managers, executives, customers, suppliers, and even competitors. In essence, your code of ethics reflects your core values.
