Looking for a sample code of conduct? Or want to see how provisions of your code of conduct stack up against your peer companies? Check out the Ethisphere Institute’s new Code of Conduct Dataset (free registration required):
The Ethisphere Code of Conduct Dataset is an aggregation of code of conduct content and policies from the 500 largest corporations by revenue. The information contained in the dataset, which was collected between January 2011 and September 2011, breaks down key aspects and content areas within each code of conduct by 42 criteria. The online, searchable dataset contains and policies benchmarked by industry.
The dataset is designed to provide compliance officers with a centralized tool for reviewing peer practices in code development to improve their own codes of conduct.
Created in partnership between Ethisphere and attorneys Ryan D. McConnell, Katharine Southard, and Charlotte Simon.
