based on hard work and diligence.
 It is a belief
in the moral benefit of work and
its ability to enhance character.

In essence, WORK ETHICS implies :
Before You Act --- ASK:
①Is this fair ?
①Is this legal ?
②Is it against corporate policy ?
③Could the action cause loss or
harm to anyone ?
④If everyone I knew saw me,
would I feel uncomfortable ?

~ NOT JUST IN ENVIRONMENT,
BUT IN THOUGHT, WORD AND ACTION,
