The Code of Ethics is a living document that is a tool to help employees navigate the ethical decisions they may face.
Georgia Tech’s Office of Ethics and Compliance is pleased to present a Code of Ethics, a resource to help employees navigate decision-making at Georgia Tech. The code of ethics is consistent with the policy of the Institute nine strategic values and a culture of ethics.
During the development of the code of ethics, the Ethics and Compliance Office convened a working group of faculty and staff members to share their subject matter expertise and review the content. They have worked to make the document easy to understand, eliminating legalese where possible. The code also includes visuals, such as flowcharts and other graphics, to make it visually appealing and reader-friendly.
“The Code of Ethics is not a rulebook or a policy. This is a living document that is a tool to help employees navigate ethical decisions they may face,” said Sally Robertson, senior counsel in the Office of Ethics and Compliance. “And while he can’t tell you what to do in every situation, he can provide a great starting point.”
Current employees are invited to attend the Employee Code of Conduct Celebration to be held Wednesday, April 13 from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. on Tech Green. Participants who download or obtain a hard copy of the Code of Ethics will receive a voucher for a food truck (limited to the first 100 participants), a free t-shirt or a free King of Pops popsicle (first come, first served because supplies will be last).
