Abstract:

This paper focuses on the existence and practice of organizational code of ethics and its relationship with the perception of employee professional integrity. The rational for this study is to examine whether there is a correlation between codes of ethics and the perception of employee integrity in a not-for-profit business environment. The complexity of our global environment requires most businesses to compete in international markets. Corporate officers are frequently presented with strategies to enhance company income which may produce immediate positive results, yet can harm the corporate image in the long run. This study will illustrate how code of conduct impacts business practices represented by company employees, their ethical beliefs and knowledge. The purpose of this research is to demonstrate the balance between codes of ethics and the perception of employee integrity in not-for-profit organizations.
