April 16, 2012 - PRLog -- It is clear from stories you read in the newspapers and watch on TV that businesses violate what many people would perceive as ethical standards. Could they avoid these missteps if they had thought ahead about how they should behave – in relation to clients, employees, suppliers and the general public? Should all businesses have a written Code of Ethics? If so, what should it contain? Nancy Crawford will present the BBB Code of Business Practices, the ethical code BBB Accredited Businesses pledge to uphold. Nicole Walthour will talk about IP’s Code and give tips and advice on writing your own Code of Ethics for your business.

The Ethics Council was formed in 2010 as a Career Emphasis Group (CEG) under the Society for Human Resource Management - Memphis Chapter. The Ethics Council meets once a quarter and meetings are open to all businesses, industries, professions and individuals.Ethics Council Goals:
