The Need for a Code of Ethics 2 Over the past ten years, there has been a dramatic increase in the ethical expectations of businesses. Customers, clients and even employees are deliberately seeking out companies who actually define the ground rules for their day to day operations. (Ethics Web, Year Unknown) However, in our company today, our employees are constantly acting very unethically in their business practices. On a daily basis, they are lying, stealing, cheating, harassing each other mentally and sexually and using their positions for more personal gain instead of for our company’s goals and profits. We must take action ourselves to define ground rules for our company’s employees. Other companies establish this by putting into place a written code of ethics. At this time, I’d like to suggest and propose that our own company create, implement and enforce a written code of ethics for our own employees to adhere to daily in their business practices. An effective code of ethics establishes the ethical expectations for our employees and management alike. It will set forth the mechanisms for enforcement and the consequences for noncompliance. (Bankers Online, 2002) There are several reasons for our company to create a written code of ethics. When our company follows proper ethics, it will cultivate stronger teamwork and productivity. This will support employee growth and meaning. It will help our employees face reality, both good and bad within the organization and themselves, giving them full confidence that they can admit and deal with whatever situations they might face day to day. (Scribd, 2009) Most of our employees will welcome guidance and structure within the company. It will give them a sense of job security as well.
