Explain the role of ethics in human resources management. An ethics policy for employees may discuss working hours, wages and benefits. incentives, flexibility, safety and health issues, and termination procedures. Ethical operations will maintain fairness and safety for all employees and customers, be open and up-front about their policies, and handle problems promptly and equitably. Train your employees in safety and emergency procedures, then reinforce the training with signage in the workspace. Ethical behavior must be maintained in employee evaluation, as well as when giving consideration for promotions, transfers, and bonuses. Sources: Allen, K. R. & Meyer, E. (2006).

The criteria for selecting and evaluating vendors include production capabilities, past experience, product quality, the availability of special buying arrangements or services, and pricing. When dealing with a vendor for the first time, buyers might solicit references to determine the vendorâs reputation. Many businesses maintain resource files and journals that document past experience with vendors. Such a journal may include an evaluation of product quality, delivery performance, and customer service. Returns relating to the quality of products may cause a vendor to be dropped.
