Business Ethics

The Dallas Area Chamber of Commerce recently received an email from an involved citizen. We felt it was important to share with our community.

Good morning Mr. Shinn!

I just wanted to send the Dallas Chamber some positive feedback- a student I tutor on the weekends was working on a business project at our session, and she ended up on the chamber website… She thought you would like to know that we explored it and found excellent info for her project, so she says thank you 🙂 And- Sophia and I thought we could return the favor by sharing another educational business resource we found, so she picked one out and I told her I’d send it today… “Guide to Business Ethics” — https://onlinebusiness.northeastern.edu/neu-msf/guide-to-business-ethics/

Sophia thought it would be a good addition to the DACC’s Business toolkit page (this one https://dallasoregon.org/business-toolkit/) because “it has really helpful information on business ethics and why it’s important.” I hope you can add it-Sophia would be so proud to see that her research & contribution were helpful… and I’d love to show her at her next tutoring session 🙂 Thanks so much JD and Happy Thanksgiving!!

Sincerely,
Sophia & Miss DeCesare

The Dallas Area Chamber of Commerce strives to help grow and educate our business community. It was great to hear how our site was helpful and even more encouraging that Sophia is looking into concepts for business.

The article that Sophia was so kind to recommend discusses the importance of having a code of ethics, and how it can negatively or positively affect a business’s reputation. People want to work with companies, and with people who uphold strong ethics concerning both their customers and their employees.

Businesses will, at times, find themselves needing to validate, and assess their code of conduct. “When there is public trust in an organization’s actions, the company can succeed. And when the employees who participate in creating and sustaining the company culture believe in what the business stands for, then the company can continue to thrive from the inside out…” The Dallas Area Chamber of Commerce strongly recommends following the above link.

We are so grateful to receive feedback from young, involved citizens such as Sophia, and Edith. Thank you again Sophia for passing on this information, and to Edith for helping to educate our youth!
