Deborah Menasha November 29, 2006 Janet Ornstil Intro to Management The word ethic means, the discipline dealing with what is good and bad and with moral duty and obligation (Merriam-Webster). In today’s society, ethics is a very important aspect in a company that can be all the difference from a smooth running company with happy employees, to a company full of corruption and dishonest people. Companies are made up of the employees and if you choose the wrong ones, then you could have a very bad situation on your hands. To help keep a company running ethically, most managers have certain rules and a Code of Ethics for their employees and themselves to follow.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
