As with most things having a clearly defined outline reflecting the rules of conduct within the company manifesto is helpful in creating the necessary guidelines of everyone concerned to act and assume roles as uniformly as possible. The principals, values, standards or behavior patterns are all encouraged to follow the rules of conduct in order to provide the common platform for decision making, procedures, and any other systems within the organization.
Many elements will eventually have some impact on the general operations of the company. These rules of conduct should also include the proper practices and concepts which cover both ethical codes and honor codes.
From a supervisory aspect based on the rules of conduct the company is able to have a certain amount of control over the vital aspects of ensuring negative practices that are unethical are kept out of the daily running of the business dealings. Any negligence, misleading conduct and fraudulent practices can be instantly detected and addressed with the implementation of effective set of rules of conduct.
By following the outline given within the rules of conduct all those involved will be able to be better focused on the positive elements that would benefit the company such as being as competent as possible in all dealings, giving due diligence to all tasks, effectively communicating and addressing concerns, handling all processes with discretion and confidentiality, and many more contributing attributes.
Having the rules of conduct in place and clearly understood also helps to eliminate any unnecessary negative vibes that may arise from the various and sometimes opposing views within the company, as everyone now focuses on common goals instead of individual agendas. These rules of conduct also allows everyone to act in a fairly uniform manner when it comes to addressing end users as all the guidelines are already present.
