Ethics and Integrity Applied
Formulating and Implementing an Effective Code of Ethics
Both public and private institutions are making a paradigm shift from codes of conduct which are basically top-down and punitive to codes of ethics which are bottom-up and basically aspirational.
Institutional Integrity demands that including both junior and senior employees in the decision making of an institutional is the best way to go.
In fact organizations that have made a transition from codes of conduct to codes of ethics are doing better than the ones that have stuck to the punitive way of managing institutions.
This book will take you through the historical evolution of codes of ethics, types of codes of ethics, choice of codes of ethics and codes of ethics implementation.
Although the book gives more emphasis to public sector codes of ethics, the process of making codes of ethics for the private sector is very similar.
Are confused about codes of ethics and codes of conduct? This book is a must read for you.
