Values and Ethics 2 Professional Values and Ethics Paper Throughout the years, professional values and ethics have been thought of as a standard for all people to abide by. This standard can be viewed as indisputable. The verification of the standard is evident in many agreements between the organizations and their employees. The chain of command follows a belief pattern that flows through the Religious organization to the Governmental organization and on through the Business organization. The concept of professional ethics is partly comprised of what professionals should or should not do in the work place. As stated by J. Rajagopal, “Professional ethics concerns one’s behavior, conduct and practice when carrying out professional work” (2007, Para. 2). If a professional is to have ethics then that person would benefit from adopting the same code of conduct in all of his or her dealings ; especially within a large organization or business where a group of people may find themselves in a situation where their values are in conflict with another. Should this situation occur, the person with the correct values and ethics will be able to reference their actions as ethical and acceptable. A professional code of conduct should be implemented in the work place. Ethics and values that should be included are concepts such as professional respect, responsibility, balance, and honesty, as well as avoidance of fraudulent activity, such as plagiarism , in conjunction with professional development of the individual meant to obtain enhancement of the profession and of the industry within which the professional works. Ethics are defined internally while morals have a tendency to be superficially pre-disposed on other people.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    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.
