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Some organizations’ codes of conduct are out-of-date; for example, many fail to address social media and #metoo issues.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.

Learning Objectives

• You will be able to recognize why some topics are more appropriate for addressing in a global code of conduct, while others are best addressed in stand-alone global HR policies; and others are best addressed locally.

• You will be able to explain the difference between a global internal code of conduct/ethics and a global employee handbook.

• You will be able to discuss how to structure and project-manage a global code of conduct launch or update.

• You will be able to review global code “launch logistics “and how to implement a code of conduct across overseas workplaces, so it sticks.
