Assignment Brief: Some corporations can undoubtedly bring benefit to society. The society, however, is questioning the existence of corporations, especially in the wake of the scandals and scams conducted by companies like EXXON, General Electric, Chevron, IBM, Kodak, Pfizer, SEARS, Rockwell, Roche, ENRON, GUINESS, WorldCom and many others. In response to it, the organizations around the globe are forced to wake up to the need for being committed towards Corporate Social Responsibility and Business Ethics. Following this line of thought, complete all 3 parts of the assignment, as they appear below:

Part A

Part C

As Sally Bibb suggests in our e-book (Page 8), as a manager you have a double role. The first is to ensure that you behave ethically yourself (‘bosses have more influence that they often realize in shaping others’ behavior aspe ople tend to consciously or unconsciously copy the boss’). The other role is that managers are responsible for making for making sure that those they manage do the right thing too. One way, moreover, to achieve that those they manage do the right thing, is through developing and introducing to employees a Code of Conduct (for more on Code of Conduct see Topic 1). In the same line of thought, this part of the assignment requires you to assume the role of a manager and develop a Code of Conduct for an organization of your Choice. This Organization may be a company you worked for in the past, or even the institution to which you are studying. In developing your Code of Conduct, you should demonstrate a critical awareness of real ethical issues that modern workplaces face. (Word Limit: 1500. Weight: 30%)
