Introduction
Ethics can be described as a set of principles and values that the organization or people
use to manage their actions and decisions. In other terms, they are the discipline dealing with the
bad and the good together with the moral obligations and duties. Most organizations have a code
of ethics that guides their decisions, policies, and programs. The philosophy of ethics used by an
organization to perform business activities can affect its development, reputation, and
