Basics of Ethics

You have to learn the rules of the game. And then you have to play better

We all have our unique set of values and principles, it is important for us to bear in mind that certain conduct in certain contexts is universally the same. Hence, no matter what your own personal set of values and principles are, there are specific codes of conduct that one need to practice in certain specific context and one such important context is your workplace.

An organization is a social unit. It involves working with other individuals who are similar or different to us in terms of their culture, gender, race, educational background, age, religion, etc. Being surrounded with such a diverse set of colleagues and being a part of an organization that has its own culture about how it engages with its employees, customers, stakeholders, investors and the society in which it operates, it is imperative for us to conduct ourselves with propriety and integrity. By consistently displaying the right work ethics you will not only emerge as a valuable asset to your organization and valued by your colleagues but also establish a professional reputation for yourself that will stand you in good stead for the rest of your life.
