Ethics: Am I really ethical in my professional capacity?
Author: Caryn Maitland CA(SA)
Study time: 1 hours
Professional ethics encompass the personal and corporate standards of behaviour expected by professionals.
As an accountant and/or auditor, you are a “professional” – but do you possess the characteristic of professionalism?
- How do you uphold your personal code of conduct in the workplace, as well as those of the organisation and profession you are employed within?
- What type(s) of behaviour(s) would make you unfit for being part of these professions?
- According to which principles do you judge your own professional ethics and those of others? And how do they form their perceptions of yours?
We are reminded daily that professionalism as a characteristic, lacks all around us in the business world.
Professionals often lack a sense of pride and purpose in their work and actions, which can bring an entire profession to its knees. So often perception is the only reality!
