In business, there are times where you face decisions that test your moral code. Whether it is the need to cut costs, in which case leads to terminating an employee/employees, or if someone approaches you with a business proposition, all of which test your ethical code. A business world without ethics would be, well, unethical and void of the written code we all need to make the right decisions for our business.
Ethics are codes that provide a moral guideline to the judgments and decisions we make on a daily basis as business leaders. Without these guidelines, things like corruption and decisions that may harm the community come into play. I believe every company should have a code or an ethics guideline that they can draw upon to keep within the parameters, not of right or wrong, but of consistency and corporate culture.
