Project #59043 - International Widgets Code of Ethics

Confidentiality

 

International Widgets is committed to maintaining the highest degree of integrity in all our dealings with potential, current, and past clients, both in terms of normal commercial confidentiality and the protection of all personal information received in the course of providing the business services concerned. We extend the same standards to all our customers, suppliers, and associates.

 

Ethics

 

We conduct business honestly and honorably and expect our clients and suppliers to do the same. We train our employees to be ethical and expect them to always act in the best interests of International Widgets.

 

Duty of Care

 

Our actions and advice will always conform to relevant law and we believe that all businesses, including International Widgets, should avoid causing any adverse effect on the human rights of people in the organizations we deal with, the local and wider environments, and the well-being of society at large.

 

Conflict of Interest

 

Employees of International Widgets must act exclusively for the benefit of International Widgets. Employees should avoid providing services to a direct competitor of International Widgets, or engage in any type of business relationship that is not in the best interests of International Widgets.

 

Our contract will usually be in the form of a detailed proposal, including aims, activities, costs, timescales, and deliverables. The quality of our service and the value of our support provide the only true basis for continuity. We always try to meet our clients' contractual requirements, particularly for situations where an external funding provider requires more official parameters and controls.

 

Intellectual Property and Moral Rights

 

We retain the moral rights in, and ownership of, all intellectual property that we create unless agreed otherwise in advance with our clients. In return, we respect the moral and intellectual copyright vested in our clients' intellectual property. Employees are not to use the intellectual property of International Widgets for any means other than the terms and conditions of their employment and to advance the interests of International Widgets.

 

Quality Assurance

 

We maintain the quality of what we do through constant ongoing review with our clients, of all aims, activities, outcomes, and the cost-effectiveness of every activity. We encourage regular review meetings and provide regular progress reports. This consultancy has been accredited under a number of quality assurance schemes. Further details are available on request.

 

Professional Conduct

 

We conduct all of our activities professionally and with integrity. We take great care to be completely objective in our judgment and any recommendations that we give, so that issues are never influenced by anything other than the best and proper interests of our clients.

 

Equality and Discrimination

 

We always strive to be fair and objective in our advice and actions and we are never influenced in our decisions, actions, or recommendations by issues of gender, race, creed, color, age, or personal disability.
