Why Ethics Matter
At Alltrade, we believe our progress, success and legacy depend on our good name. An excellent reputation is a differentiating competitive advantage.
Customers are looking for people with character – character that enables them to differentiate between what is honest and dishonest.
There are many areas of business that involve ethical protocols and ethical behaviour including:
- Compliance with laws
- Record management
- Trade secrets
- Accounting for funds
- Conflicts of interest
- Use of company assets, such as software, tools and equipment
Companies with good reputations do more than follow the law; they treat people and businesses fairly – whether the law requires it or not.
There are many benefits of strong ethics. When we operate ethically, we create an atmosphere of trust and increase collaboration – ultimately, leading to better projects and earning customer loyalty.
Firms that operate ethically are respected in the industry, which makes it easier to recruit and retain top talent. Good people attract other good people.
While ethics include the moral code we live by and our personal reputation, the fact is that respected ethics are good for business.
