Ethics refers to the concept of what is right or wrong, ethical behavior is considered behavior that is in line with the accepted moral code and that which is proper.
When faced with immediate monetary concerns, we encourage people to act in a moral perspective by:
Having integrity: integrity connotes strength and stability. It means taking the high road by practicing the highest ethical standards. Demonstrating integrity shows completeness and soundness in your character and organization.
Being responsible: refusal to take responsibility erodes respect and cohesion in an institution, ethical people take responsibility for their actions. Actions show the ability to be responsible both in the little and big things.
Quality: it should be more than making the best product but should extend in every aspect of your occupation. A person who recognizes quality and strives for it daily has a great sense of self-respect, pride in accomplishment, and attentiveness that affects everything.
Trust worthy and respectful: trust is a hard thing to earn and even harder to get back when lost. Everyone who comes across you should have trust and confidence in you, whatever field you’re in. Respect is a demonstration of honor and value for something or someone, you give respect to earn it.
Leadership: a leader provides an example that others will follow and that includes all the good qualities and also treating others with civility. Also by being a team player, it’s good to work openly and supportively with people.
Self discipline: acting with reasonable restraint and not indulging in excessive behavior
Fidelity: an allegiance to the public trust, loyalty to your institution and profession and faithfulness to God
