“Ethics is knowing the difference between what you have a right to do and what is right to do.”
-Potter Stewart, Former Associate Justice of the United States Supreme Court
Workplace ethics and business ethics refer to the ethical dimensions of organizations and commercial activities. Ethics, in general, are the set of rules that are important to be followed to be a part of society.
A company’s workplace ethics are the backbone of its company culture, guiding the decisions its management team makes. Workplace ethics are the moral principles that guide a person’s actions in the workplace.
The ethical principles like loyalty, Comradery, trustworthiness, integrity, respect, caring, responsibility, and accountability contribute towards elevating benefits for propelling any business.
To begin with, ethical policies in the workplace safeguard the fundamental human rights. This practice helps in protecting the employees from the issues such as racial or gender discrimination. The ethical standards also protect the company’s assets, stealing of office property, or breaching of confidential documents. The implementation of workplace ethics also elevates the overall atmosphere of the office providing the employees emotional, physical, or sexual security. Additionally, workplace ethics help in preventing any kind of psychological or sexual harassments within the office premises enabling the authority to take disciplinary action against the accused employee/s.
About the successful implementation of the Code of Ethics, it entirely depends upon the senior level authority and their management approach. However, many times it becomes evident that applying the ethical standards with the employees seems to be really critical for the higher authority.
Acknowledging and rewarding for employees sticking to the code of conduct proves to be the best practice; while imparting words of rejoice to the employees convicted of unethical behavior definitely promotes negative practice. A timely review and evaluation might definitely result in successful continuity of ethical standards in the workplace.
