Ethics as stated early is about your moral attitude of good and bad behavior, and what does that really mean in everyday life. Ethics has to do with how you would react to a situation you may become involved in, such as would you take a pen from work, that is not yours, the company you work for purchased that pen, it belongs to the company.
I know that this is something very small, such as a pen, but ethics encompass those activities and behaviors. That very small pen costs the company money and when it is remove from their premises, they have to replace the pen. For you to do your work you need writing instruments, so the company will have to spend more money on those pens in large amounts and the costs could be exorbitant in supplies if they have to keep replacing pens. Are you trust worthy, to be counted on to do the right thing.
When you are placed in a position of power or authority, can you be ethical in your interactions with others, who may work for you. Would you favor one employee over another because they are better looking, dress better, or because a employee may have done favors for you. Would you give an unfair advantage to someone, because of those favors, or just because you know them personally.
Ethics has to do with honesty, will you keep your word and do what you say or would you not keep your word and betray a confidant of their secret. If a confidant asked you to keep a secret and you stated that you would keep their secret. Once you were informed of your friend's secret, you turn to another friend and told them, the secret, that you stated that you would keep secret. Would this be ethical?
Ethics encompass everything you do in life, so when you are outside of your home, interacting with others, all ways keep good ethics at the forefront of your mind, as to how you would treat others and hopefully others will return good ethical treatment to you as well. Also remember that ethics goes both ways good and bad moral behavior or character.
