Expected Ethical Behaviour

HONESTY

You should be honest in all of your actions and every communication you make. People appreciate the fact they can take you at your word, as members only ever do business with those they trust. If you have unintentionally given the wrong impression, ensure to provide the relevant information to your members and correct their misunderstanding as soon as possible.​

INTEGRITY

This is how you earn the trust of others, whether they are your members, team or your superiors. This requires you to have the moral courage to do the right thing, and it takes inner strength to live up to mistakes and admit when a fault has been made. Showing integrity means not sacrificing your honor for the sake of just getting the job done.​

LOYALTY

You need to be loyal to the organization, your team and yourself while operating within a strong moral compass. Showing loyalty builds trust and shows that you place a high value on advancing the interests of both the organization and your colleagues. You should not ever place loyalty above your other moral principles, or use it as an excuse for unethical behavior. Never use information that you have gained in confidence for your own personal advancement. Avoid situations of conflicts of interest, and if you ever decide to quit the organization, do it on the best of terms. Give reasonable notice, respect any information that was gained in your former office, and never engage in activities that take advantage of a previous position that was held.​

RESPECT FOR OTHERS

You must strive to treat others the way you would like to be treated. Human dignity, autonomy, privacy, rights, and interests of all those who have a stake in your decisions must be respected. You should be courteous and treat all people with equal respect and dignity regardless of sex, race or nationality.

PATRIOTISM

Your love, loyalty and obedience to the organization must be paramount.​

COMMUNICATION AND UNITY

We believe in teamwork to achieve our common and organizational goals.​​ Therefore, we strongly encourage teamwork and effective communication within and outside the organization. 

LAW ABIDING

To be ethical, one should always obey the law, and never break the rules, regulations, or laws surrounding the activities, vision, and mission of the organization.​
