General Information about Ethics for Meeting Planners and Prospective Clients.
Ethics is a part of philosophy that has its roots in antiquity, with Plato and Aristotle among the first thinkers attempting to build its foundations. In general terms, ethics deals with values, morals, and the relationship between concepts such as good and evil or right and wrong. Although ethics can often be highly abstract and theoretical, it also has a sub-field that deals with real-world phenomena: applied ethics. This branch of ethics investigates the moral aspects of private and public life, health, technology, leadership, law, and many other professions. In our daily lives, we all are familiar with ethical codes of conduct, since they are present in almost every type of organization, whether large or small.
Ethical decision-making in the workplace takes into account the individual employee’s best interests and, at the same time, the interests of those impacted by the employee’s actions. An ethical culture in a company can stimulate positive employee behaviors that lead to organizational growth. Reliance on ethics can promote employee performance, job satisfaction, organizational commitment, trust, and organizational citizenship behaviors (which include altruism, civic virtues, conscientiousness, sportsmanship, and courtesy). Ultimately, ethics entails doing what is right regardless of what the law says. This is main difference between ethics and compliance, which refers to law-abiding behaviors. Ethics is related to our system of personal values, including our character and the core principles that guide our actions towards others.
