Towards elaboration of codes of conduct in the digital world

To begin have in mind some existing texts, for example :

1- …. «  As I will explain further on, to support largely autonomous decisions and processes and the coordination of them, we would have to

Code of conduct

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
image Look up code of conduct in Wiktionary, the free dictionary.

code of conduct is a set of rules outlining the social norms and rules and responsibilities of, or proper practices for, an individual, party or organization. Relatedconcepts include ethicalhonormoral codes and religious laws.

In its 2007 International Good Practice Guidance, “Defining and Developing an Effective Code of Conduct for Organizations”, the International Federation of Accountants[1] provided the following working definition:

“Principles, values, standards, or rules of behaviour that guide the decisions, procedures and systems of an organization in a way that (a) contributes to the welfare of its key stakeholders, and (b) respects the rights of all constituents affected by its operations.”

A common code of conduct is written for employees of a company, which protects the business and informs the employees of the company’s expectations. It is ideal for even the smallest of companies to form a document containing important information on expectations for employees. The document does not need to be complex or have elaborate policies, but the file needs a simple basis of what the company expects from each employee.
