Here’s something I read that stuck with me this week. It’s from Ethics4Everyone – The Handbook for Integrity-Based Business Practices. It’s the 8-point Ethical Action Test:

  1. Is it legal?
  2. Does it comply with our rules and guidelines?
  3. Is it in synch with our organization’s values?
  4. Will I be comfortable and guilt free if I do it?
  5. Does it match our stated commitments and guarantees?
  6. Would I do it to my family or friends?
  7. Would I be perfectly Ok with someone doing it to me?
  8. Would the most ethical person I know do it?

How often do you find yourself taking this test?
