Discoveries from the Report

Our study of nearly 100 publicly-available Codes using an objective and standardized framework made one thing clear: a leading Code inspires principled performance, guides employees in how to live the organization's values, and enables them to be aware of risks and make ethical decisions.

Tone From the top

risk areas

Codes of Conduct are created as a resource to help mitigate risk through raising awareness, providing behavioral guidance, and enabling ethical decision making. Optimized Codes are 2.3x stronger in providing business rationale.
