1.0 Introduction

Nowadays, society is governed by the implications of rules and legal restrictions. All of these rules were created to uphold and maintain the idea of ethical and moral values. Even children growing up were taught by some very important codes of ethics at school. These lessons learned as a youth growing up carry over into adulthood, as an employee or manager. Managers and workers both follow a similar code of ethics within the work place. Today, as a management consultant, I am going to prepare a code of ethics for my clients as they have recently started a restaurant called Knox, it is important to have a code of ethics in every company for their employees and also a circular by explaining the purpose and benefits of a good ethics. And finally, a brief report on the steps of strategic formulation and implementation.

2.0 The Code of Ethics

Knox expects every employee to seek and understand the truth in all aspects of their work. Staff members are to act the highest standards of honesty, integrity, respect and fairness when dealing with customers and employees. As an employee, you will be expected to read and follow these policies and sign a statement to that effect.

Code of Ethics Overview

All Knox employees and directors are expected to conduct Knox’s business in accordance with high standards of honesty and integrity, which include:

• Honest and ethical conduct, including the avoidance and ethical handling of actual or apparent conflicts of interest between personal and professional relationships and between personal interests and the business interests of Knox;

• Full, fair, accurate and understandable disclosure in the periodic reports required to be filed by Knox and in other communications made by Knox;

• Adapt to applicable governmental laws, rules and regulations, including product safety, and dealings with competitors and other employees

This Code also contains guidelines to assist employees and directors in acting and making decisions on behalf of Knox consistent with these standards and avoiding conflicts of interests. No guidelines can be all-inclusive, however, responsibility for proper conduct rests with each Employee and Director. If you are faced with making a difficult decision or have questions about the applicability of the Code, you are encouraged to discuss the matter with your supervisor.

Abuse of Position and Conflict of Interest

• An employee shall not use or attempt to use his/her official position to secure unwarranted privileges, advantages, or exemptions for the employee or others.
