The dictionary definition of ethics is:

  • Moral principles that govern person's or group's behavior
  • The moral correctness of specified conduct.
In basic terms, ethics is how a person, or an establishment, thinks people should act and behave. This could be with regards to how they act with each other or how you look at yourself.

  • Work ethics
You may have heard of the term work ethics, this is how a business or company thinks you should act and behave. This will most likely include; being polite, being professional, treating everyone with respect, not talking down to people and working as a team.

  • Personal ethics
You may have your own ethics, which means that you may strongly believe that you should act or behave in a certain way; which could be anything from good table manners to the way you speak to other people or even the way you react to others.

  • Ethics and morals
Ethics is similar to morals except that morals is more to do with right and wrong and ethics is your beliefs or the company's beliefs rather than what is right or wrong.

Ethics means different things to different people depending on what their ethics actually are, but there is no wrong or right ethic as we are all different with our own opinions and beliefs which we should all respect.
