Institute of Directors Nigeria (IoD Nigeria), is set to launch its IoD Code of Ethics 2020 for Members and Staff of the Institute at a high profile Hybrid Virtual Event on Thursday 6th August 2020 at 11 am prompt. These Codes of Ethics, will serve as a guide for all the Institute’s members and its personnel on the practice of sound business ethics and principles.
The Code of Ethics of the Institute will standardise the practice of sound ethical values and principles among Members and staff of IoD Nigeria and induce voluntary compliance with the highest ethical standards. It is aimed at better positioning the Institute to monitor the conduct of its members and employees. It is also the aspiration of the Institute that the IoD Code of Ethics will also serve as a guide for other stakeholders on Ethics.
The Code, amongst others, addresses and guides a number of issues for its members such as whistleblowing framework, a Conflict of Interest policy and a Gift and Hospitality policy. It also provides illustrative ethics examples and case studies to showcase the impact and effect on institutions of poor governance practices and ethics and the positive impact and business benefits of good ethical practices on organisations to inspire good practice. As an Institute with a focus on Corporate Governance, best practice and Ethics, we are committed to ensuring that our members who are directors of Institutions, subscribe to the tenets of this aspirational code, and ensure that as leaders, they are properly enabled and guided in their conduct and behaviour in their personal and business endeavours.
