Personal Code of Ethics
Are codes of ethics different between societies and individual people? What I mean by this is, is a
personal code of ethics necessarily any different from that of the society they keep and the societal
standards which are around them?
It’s a good question, and it makes all of us think, individually, about how we have set up our own
personal codes of ethics. After all, don’t we all think constantly about our ethics? The answer is, not
really. It is usually not required to think about these things. Unless you have an inherently philosophical
nature, you probably haven’t thought more than once or twice about your own personal ethics. It’s not
exactly the grocery list, the interesting book you’re reading, or your love life, nor would it hold your
attention as long as these things would.
It’s necessary, therefore, to think about it now, when the subject has been broached. Think about what
you believe about your rights to do things, and whether or not your version of “right” and “wrong”
directly correspond with the laws of your area. This is not a political article. It is merely to get
businesspeople thinking about how they go about presenting their business to the public.
You will need to make sure that your employees are exhibiting the same professionalism that you
exhibit. And, if they cannot do this, are they working in a part of your business where this would still be
acceptable? Looking at drug testing program, such as an onsite drug and alcohol testing program, would
naturally be a part of your job as the owner or manager of your business. It is necessary to set an
example, so being visibly active in your business’ drug testing program is a good idea.
If you would like to make sure that your employees maintain a strong personal code of ethics, well you
cannot read their minds, but you can employ a regular onsite drug testing system from Mediscreen. We
