It is increasingly important for companies and community leaders to adopt and follow an ethical framework. Making the “right” decision is not always easy, but having a code of ethics or policy guidelines in place can certainly help. What kinds of gifts, if any, can be accepted? What behaviors are encouraged and fostered and, conversely, what actions are frowned up—or can even jeopardize your job, credential or position? This publication offers guidance on how to create and implement tools and policies to ensure that ethical behavior is clearly defined and that consistent practices are employed in your workplace or community.
The report includes four case studies, a survey of management company executives and large-scale managers on ethics, CAI’s various codes of ethics and related policies and standards, a sample code of ethics from two
organizations and a comprehensive list of resources offering more information on ethics.
Ethics is also available as a free PDF download. However, for those who want a printed version, it is available here at cost.
