Let us assume you work for a mid-size company. You have been there for six years, and your future with this
company is bright. Just yesterday, you caught a co-worker, who is also a friend of yours, packing up some office supplies to take home. At the end of the day, your supervisor asked you to sign off on an expense report that you know is padded with personal expenses. What do you do?
How you handle these ethical dilemmas largely depends upon your own personal values and personal code of conduct. Your personal standards of behavior should align with your professional standards of behavior.
- Create personal values statement.
- Relate your personal code of ethics to your professional career path.
