Code of Conduct Defines the Significant Values and Beliefs of a Business and how to develop:
A Code of Conduct is a written collection of the rules, principles, values, and employee expectations, behavior, and relationships that an organization considers significant and believes are fundamental to their successful operation.
A Code of Conduct enumerates those standards and values that make an organization remarkable and that enable it to stand out from similar organizations. The Code of Conduct is named by an organization to reflect the culture that is present in the organization and to make a statement.
The written code of conduct provides guidance for employees, customers, and any other stakeholders as to what is deemed most significant, valued, and desirable in relationships, interactions, and the organization's worldview.
The Purpose of the Code of Conduct:
While Code of Conduct is a popular title for this written document and its series of expectations, other companies call it their Code of Business Ethics, Code of Ethical Business Conduct and Code of Ethics and Standards. The last is popular in professional associations.
No matter what an organization calls it, the Code of Conduct serves as a framework for ethical decision making within an organization. The Code of Conduct is a communication tool that informs internal and external stakeholders about what is valued by a particular organization, its employees, and management.
The Code of Conduct is the heart and soul of a company. Think of a Code of Conduct as an in-depth view of what an organization believes and how the employees of an organization see themselves and their relationship with each other and the rest of the world. The Code of Conduct paints a picture of how employees, customers, partners, and suppliers can expect to be treated as a result.
