We all have specific standards that must be met; in our home, life, or career. Constantly and consistently we are expected to meet these standards. It’s just something as a human we are trained and used to. As a student, daughter, and employee, there are many different ground rules that I have and will maintain for my life. These codes have established a reputable name for myself so far, and guarantee that I stick to the script. Throughout my life, up to this point, I have found a code of ethics that I strongly believe in and sets a good example of what my professional and personal life.

Whatever you do, put your best foot forward. Your clients expect the best quality of work from you. The quality of your work doesn’t only reflect your company’s reputation, but also your own.
Promise to always uphold and meet the job expectations and daily work duties. Self-responsibility is the most important, and an employee should always take responsibility for their actions, whether inside or outside of normal duties. Read and live up to the company’s code of ethics consistently, and self-evaluate annually.
This is related to responsibility, but the main difference is that employees should perform the required and assigned duties and to be there to work on time. If they are not completed and performed on the job, the employee is not being accountable. For a company to be successful, every employee needs to do their job, be present, and work together for the same goal: make the business more productive and efficient.
