PROFESSOR’S GUIDANCE FOR THIS WEEK’S LE:
Most US companies that have a code of ethics do not violate ethical values, norms, and principles. Unfortunately, only 14 percent of companies have a code of ethics. In order for everyone to begin from the same starting point, the organization’s commitment to ethical behavior must be documented in a code of ethics. A well-written code of ethics that not only will be developed and also enforced. The enforcement is everyone’s responsibility.
