The importance of being ethical
This is a guest contribution by Diana F. Costales:
Being ethical is not a dilemma you should face, you just have to be ethical. First, you owe it to yourself, and second, you owe it to your workplace.
Just to explain the way I understand this core principle, the organisation that has recruited you had a large number of qualified candidates to choose from, and they chose you. They have made it possible for you to eat every day, to pay your monthly bills, and to have the standard of living you enjoy. Besides, they provide you with something intangible but very valuable: experience. Do not forget that you are learning everyday… even something insignificant. Please do not take me wrong, this does not mean you have to do anything at any cost. But what you have to do, is being ethical. Do not do things that will compromise the company´s reputation or your own values because you have to pursue excellence in everything you do, at least this is one of my goals in life.
By having high ethical standards, you just win. You probably have weaknesses like being impatient, or you are not focused, or do not know how to delegate…you name it, but unethical…???? That should not be a word in your vocabulary. By being ethical you´ll gain trust, credibility, loyalty and respect from others and that is being a true professional.
