Ethics 101

Business Series - Ethics Lesson

Ethics to most people are almost like laws. They would not break them because of the serious consequences. The same applies in business. Employees/Employers have ethical standards that they are expected not to “break” or otherwise there will be consequences. Business ethics is necessary and important in every career, every position, and every task. The ethics of a business applies to not only individuals throughout, but also the entire company. Unethical behavior can destroy relationships, terminate jobs, and can become illegal, while ethical behavior develops trust, integrity, and loyalty. Strong ethical behavior is desired by everyone involved in a business- the employer, employees, customers, and consumers.

In our new study, Business Series, you can learn the difference between etiquette and ethics, what ethics is, and what unethical behavior is in business. Below is just a glimpse of some of the behaviors discussed in the Ethics 101 lesson:
