Evaluating and Understanding Business Ethics Codes
To evaluate and understand codes of ethics in modern businesses I began by examining the precipitating causes of Sarbanes Oxley and its specific implications and requirements placed on businesses. For comparative purposes, I also looked at the effects that it has had on nonprofit organizations. My project also looked into the pressing need for ethics amidst a culture and instances of fraudulent and unethical conduct. By understanding the ethics and codes that an organization lives by, we can better understand and predict their behavior. In addition, we can look at their effectiveness and whether further implementation is beneficial for the market, the consumer, and for the environment.
