Executive Summary

“Nowadays people know the price of everything and the value of nothing” Oscar Wilde
This research report analyses and discusses workplace ethics and social responsibility. The purpose of this research is to help you and my coworkers understand how an ethical and socially responsible workplace increases efficiency. Ethics are very important in our everyday lives. Ethics exist in all aspects and should be followed accordingly. Ethics exist in the workplace too which is what my main focus will be on.
The concept of ethics mean different things for various people but generally it is to understand what is right or wrong in the workplace and ultimately doing what’s right. This research is not to teach you how to stay out of trouble or how to make more money. It is about how to take moral and values and engages it on the activities in the workplace. Workplace ethics is the code of conduct which people need to follow in any work place. The ethics in the workplace is what determines the behavior and culture of the people and organization.
Ethics is what allows each person to respect each other and for relationships within a company to be strong and to be based on loyalty, trust, respect and honesty. These are the core elements which need to exist for an organization to be run smoothly and efficiently. The good relationship between employer and employee and between the organization and customers are the most important
