Regardless of whether your organization is legally mandated to have a code (as public companies are), every organization should have one. A code has value as both an internal guideline and an external statement of corporate values and commitments. At AMS Networks we do just that! We help organizations meet their objectives from ground up. We firmly believe that if the foundation (regulatory compliance and ethics code) is strong, the company will excel in all of its ventures.
A well-written code of conduct clarifies an organization’s mission, values and principles, linking them with standards of professional conduct. The code articulates the values the organization wishes to foster in leaders and employees and, in doing so, defines desired behavior. As a result, written codes of conduct or ethics can become benchmarks against which individual and organizational performance can be measured.
Additionally, a code is a central guide and reference for employees to support day-to-day decision making. A code encourages discussions of ethics and compliance, empowering employees to handle ethical dilemmas they encounter in everyday work. It can also serve as a valuable reference, helping employees locate relevant documents, services and other resources related to ethics within the organization.
