Ethics Policy: Vendor Relationships
Ethical behavior is something most people practice every day. It’s rare that an organization will need to enforce an ethics policy, but having one in place is a good idea.
This ethics policy, written by Mark W. Kaelin for TechRepublic Premium, outlines areas where interactions with vendors might be questionable.
- Featured text from the policy:
STANDARDS FOR CONDUCT
Any short-term benefit gained by unethical conduct will be offset by the long-term harm that such actions bring. Employees will maintain exemplary ethical standards in all dealings with suppliers and vendors and will refer to this policy if they have questions or concerns about employee-vendor relationships.
OBEYING THE LAW
Employees will conduct business in accordance with all applicable laws and regulations. However, compliance with the law does not comprise the entirety of ethical responsibility. Compliance with the law defines the minimum, absolutely essential performance of duties.
