Observing Ethics in a Workplace

Ethics refers to an individuals ability to tell what is good or bad which will affect

what they do or behave. They are the morals one believes in according to the law, religious

believes or what a society says. Other than using their skills in the workplace, employees will

need to use such ethical issues to ensure peaceful co existence as well as long term

productivity. Proper ethical behaviors ensures smooth managerial leadership as well as good

interrelations between employers and their staff.

Some of the values that lead to observation of ethical behaviors include having self

control. This is the ability to make right decisions that will benefit the institution by goodwill

by avoiding being self-centered and acting with temperance. Being just and offering fair

guidance on certain issues also ensures ethical behavior. It involves giving all individuals

equal treatment irrespective of gender, age or tribe. One needs to have courage and integrity

so as to tell right from wrong and act accordingly.

Love and kindness also encourages ethical behaviors. Leaders/managers have the sole

role of ensuring individuals maintain ethical behaviors. It can be by making right choices on

who joins the organization. Employing people based on their skills is normal but it is also

advisable to choose people of good morals to. Institutional orientations in order to enhance

organizations values, fair allocation of resources, enhancing accountability and making

follow ups are part of the values that would ensure ethical behaviors. In addition to these

values, an institution needs to have a code of conduct which clearly will outline the behavior

standards within the organization.
