How to Develop a Global Code of Conduct

Multinationals have been issuing global codes of conduct for so long that these documents, in many cases, have gotten sloppy.

Some organizations' codes of conduct are out-of-date; for example, many fail to address social media and #metoo issues. Some organizations' codes blur the line between employee conduct and the conduct of workers in the supply chain - people the organization does not even employ. Some organizations' codes got drafted nicely at headquarters but never got correctly implemented globally, and do not "stick" at operations and offices overseas. This material reviews how to draft or update, and then how to launch, a state-of-the-art global code of conduct or business ethics. It flags the traps, mistakes and shortcomings that bedevil multinationals as they try to impose detailed global rulebooks on staff across many countries at the same time.
