Ethics involves knowing what is right and wrong, and then doing the right thing -- but "the right thing" is not always straightforward . Many workplace ethical dilemmas are not simple and like most organizations, we have found that we need standards, supporting guidelines and a process to assist us in working through ethical issues.
With the input of many of you, we have developed a Code of Workplace Ethics for UHN. The Code provides direction and advice on how each and every one of us is expected to act at UHN, guidance on how to handle ethical dilemmas, and information on how to report ethical concerns. If you find yourself facing a workplace ethical dilemma and you are asking yourself, "how do I proceed?" The Code of Workplace Ethics will provide you with direction in managing ethical dilemmas such as those involving employee relationships, accounting practices, supplier relationships, conflicts of interest, and fulfilling job responsibilities.
There are several compelling reasons for introducing a Code of Workplace Ethics at UHN and I want to highlight a few. The Code will:
We have several services that provide assistance in managing ethical issues at the workplace. Legal Affairs, Risk Management, Human Resources, Bioethics, and the Privacy Office all provide expertise and assistance to deal with issues in our complex environment. The Code of Workplace Ethics expands our commitment to building a culture of integrity and empowers all staff to apply ethical standards when making decisions everyday.
There are various ways to report this, including speaking with your manager, completing a Patient/Visitor Incident Report Form or contacting a Human Resource Advisor for advice.
For more information please visit the new Workplace Ethics website located on the left hand column of the Intranet home page. Copies of the Code will be distributed to employees through their managers.
