The corporate communications

Several examples of a Code of Conduct were so powerful in guiding the behavior, standards, and ethics of an organization that they became famous in and of themselves. At Johnson & Johnson, for example, Robert Wood Johnson, company chairman from 1932 to 1963 and a member of the organization’s founding family, wrote their famous Credo in 1943. William Hewlett and David Packard long managed Hewlett-Packard (HP): The HP Way.

A Code of Conduct can also be a document that details an organization’s expectations and requirements of their vendors, suppliers, and partners. Also commonly called a supplier code of ethics, the Code of Conduct lays the groundwork for the organization’s relationship with its partners.

For example, Apple’s (and the Electronics Industry’s) Supplier Code of Conduct states that “Apple is committed to ensuring that working conditions in Apple’s supply chain are safe, that workers are treated with respect and dignity, and that manufacturing processes are environmentally responsible.”

Another frequent component of the Code of Conduct for suppliers is that they are discouraged from offering gifts to employees who, by their Code of Conduct, are unable to accept them lest there be any questionable use of their services.
