Business is all about work ethic. Work ethic involves being honest, adhering to laws, conflict management, being fair, confidentiality, professional behavior, etc.
1. The Importance Of Professional Competence
Intelligence doesn’t determine success, your work ethic does. For example, if you do not set a regular schedule and work accordingly, you will end up working too much some days and accomplishing nothing on others. This will result in a huge pile up of tasks with you having no idea on how to progress. Not just this, if your employees are not honest, you have no clue on where you are with a specific business operation.
Moreover, if an employee doesn’t adhere to rules, it will affect the work of others in your company. In addition to that, your employees should trust you. To assure proper ethics in place, you will require a code of conduct certificate from your previous employers. If you are a member of non-profits or business organizations that conduct festivals, a code of conduct certificate issued by them will suffice.
2. Dealing With Non-Adherence Of Employees
There are bound to be discrepancies while handling businesses and some of them can be misconduct on the part of your employees. As the director of your business, you will need to be prepared to handle such situations. You can take the help of your legal team to come up with policies that are fair and just. You can present a copy to get accreditation.
Such a policy should include a process on how complaints are received, how the complaint is processed to be valid or not, how the relevant person is notified and asked to address the issue, how to solve the problem and the process to formulate a plan if ever there is a re-occurrence of the same kind of discrepancy.
3. Conflicts Of Interest Policy
Conflicts of Interest policies deal situations in which the personal interests of an employee are in conflict with the interest of the organization. As an employer, you should have dedicated responsibility to identify such situations and should also have proper legislation to handle the same. This policy should be fair and should safeguard the fundamental rights of your employee. It should also not damage the reputation of your organization.
The features of this policy determine the moral standards of your organization. A copy of this should be handed over for accreditation.
4. Confidentiality Procedures
Every business withstands on the confidentiality of their Intel. However, it is entirely possible for such Intel to be misused. Your organization should not only safeguard but also know how to deal with espionage. You will need policies in place for this too. All legal documentation should be verified by a legal expert. Again, a copy of these policies will help you to get accredited.
If you have no idea on how to begin preparing such policies, then you have to appoint a lawyer. They consult with standardization bodies and use their framework to create quality legal processes. This will help you conduct your business better and gain the trust of more customers.
