Corporate ethics is the knowledge of the difference between what is good and bad in the corporate world.
It is a form of ethics applied in the professional world, examining the ethical and moral principles that act as guides to the way business is being conducted.
Here are ten business ethics;
- Proper dress code: In as much as people are free to wear whatever they wish, the corporate world demands that workers should be dress in a corporate manner. This applies to both male and female.
- Communication: For one to be in a business world, communication is inevitable as long as a worker has colleagues in the office. Vulgar words should be avoided at all cost.
- Develop Professional relationship: Relationships in the business world should be kept professional by all means.
- Take responsibility: Workers should learn to yield to taking responsibilities, shying away from responsibility is not a sign of commitment.
- Be accountable: Being accountable builds trust between the employee and employer.
- Keep Company secrets: This is an ethic most people derail from, a company’s secret should be guarded at all cost, even when one is no longer working with a particular firm.
- Productivity: Being productive brings intrinsic motivation and help builds a firm.
- Dedication: Workers who are not dedicated may always find it difficult to be productive.
- Punctuality: Punctuality dies not end at going to work on time but also making sure that deadlines are met and break-time protocols are kept.
- Organising skills: Avoid crowded tables, files should be properly arranged and things should be done accordingly.
