Code of Ethics
Begin by preparing a Code of Ethics for a fictional company which should include at minimum ten elements. Include an introductory paragraph to present your company’s code of ethics. You may use bullet points or headings for your ten elements, but be sure to use complete sentences, and provide citations as necessary. Be sure each element clearly addresses employee behavior and what the company expects.
Once you have compiled the Code of Ethics, respond to the following questions:
- Why did you include each of the ten elements?
- Why is a Code of Ethics an important part of every business from an employer standpoint?
- Why is a Code of Ethics an important part of every business from an employee standpoint?
- Once you have written the Code of Ethics, how would you implement to ensure compliance?
Your completed assignment should be a minimum of three double-spaced pages (one page for the Code of Ethics and one page for question responses). Please use a minimum of two credible sources from the CSU Online Library to support your reasoning. Referenced sources must have accompanying citations complying with APA guidelines.
Format your essay response in accordance with APA style. For step-by-step instructions for formatting a paper in APA style, please refer to the CSU Citation Guide. (http://www.columbiasouthern.edu/downloads/pdf/success/citation-guide).
