一早收到公司合规同事发来的邮件,原文如下:

Dear All,

March is Ethics Awareness Month. When your child asks, “What did you do at work today?” … are you proud of the answer? As XXXXXXX reinforces the importance of ethical behavior to our business, here’s some practical advice you can use in your everyday activities when deciding how to make the “right” decision.
三月份是职业道德宣传月。当你的孩子问你:“你今天上班都做些什么?”等类似问题时,你的回答会让你觉得自豪吗?XXXXXXX强调职业道德行为对我们业务的重要性,这里有一些切实可行的建议,它能够用来帮助你在日常业务中如何去做“正确”的决定。
 
Ethics is one of mankind’s oldest disciplines. The term “ethics” was introduced by Aristotle, the Greek philosopher, who remarked that ethics helps us know what to do and what to avoid. Yet, centuries later, the choice between right and wrong usually isn’t as obvious as we might think – particularly in a business environment. Many business decisions are made quickly or under pressure, sometimes before we even realize that the situation has ethical implications.
道德是人类最古老的原则之一。“道德”一词是由希腊的哲学家亚里士多德提出的,他认为,道德观念有助于我们判断什么事是该做的,什么事是要避免的。然而,几百年过去了,在对与错的选择上,却常常不像我们认为的那样显而易见,特别是在商业环境中,很多业务上的决定要么过于草率,要么是在受到压力的情况下作出的,有时候,甚至是在我们已经认识到存在职业道德问题的情况下作出的。

In addition, even though we all have our own ethical beliefs and standards, we also need to pay attention to other factors, such as the law or our company policies. Complicating the issue even further is the fact that being ethical isn’t always as simple as following the letter of the law or a company policy. Some situations involve a personal judgment of right or wrong.
另外,即便我们都有自己的道德信仰和标准,我们仍然需要注意其他一些因素,比如法律或者我们的公司政策。更为复杂的情况是,遵守法律或者公司政策的书面意思并不总能保持道德高尚,这并没那么简单,有些情况需要凭我们个人的是非观念来判断。

Confusing? It can be. Important? Certainly. As we all know, as the insurance company that provides a personal safety net® for customers, XXXXXXXis a company whose ability to grow and thrive relies on the public’s trust that we can and will live up to our commitments. Our reputation for ethical behavior is imperative in building and maintaining that trust.
这让你感到迷茫吗?是的。职业道德重要吗?那是肯定的。我们知道,作为向客户提供人身安全保障的保险公司,XXXXXXXX的发展和兴旺有赖于公众的信任,我们能够,也应该信守这样的承诺。在建立并维护公众信任的过程中,我们具有的诚信声誉会起到重要作用。

So when it comes to an ethical decision, it’s important to examine it from all angles. The following ethics “quick test” can help you determine whether to take a particular action:
所以,当作出一个正确的决定时,从方方面面审视是很重要的。下面的职业道德“快速测试”会帮助你决定是否需要采取一些特别措施:
1. Will my actions violate the law or company policies?
我的行为会违反法律或者公司政策吗?
2. Could my actions harm others?
我的行为可能伤害到别人吗?
3. Would others feel that I owe them something, or that they owe me something?
别人会觉得我欠他们什么,或者他们欠我什么吗?
4. Could my actions appear improper?
我的行为看起来是否不妥当?

If any of these questions raises a red flag in your mind, you should seek experienced advice in making the decision and in providing transparency to anyone looking back at the situation later. So if you are faced with a difficult ethical situation, speak up. Seek help from company resources, such as your supervisor or Corporate Ethics and Compliance.
如果上面任何一个问题使你的脑海中亮了“红灯”,你就应该在决策时寻找更为成熟的建议,并在事后向有关人员坦诚相告。所以,在你面临职业道德困境的时候,请说出来,向公司相关人员需求帮助,比如你的主管或者公司合规部。

Being ethical not only benefits MetLife, it benefits you. Honesty and trust create a more productive working environment. Think how much more efficient you are when you can trust the people around you to do what they promise. When everyone plays by the same rules, we all win.
遵守职业道德不仅使MetLife受益,也会让你受益。诚信会营造一种更高效的工作环境。想一想,当你确信你周围的人能够践行他们对你所做的承诺时,你的工作效率会有多高!当所有人都依此行事,我们大家都将无往不利。

The bottom line is that each of us must accept personal responsibility to understand the laws and policies that affect our work. But beyond adhering to laws and policies, we must also recognize our obligation to make the right choice and have the conviction to act on it, no matter how tough that action may be. It takes all of us, operating every day in an ethical manner, to preserve what is certainly one of XXXXXXX’s greatest business strengths: our reputation for honesty and integrity.
每一个都应当理解与我们工作相关的法律和公司政策,承担这个责任是我们的底线。但是,除了遵守法律法规和公司政策,我们还必须认识到,作出正确的选择并切实履行也是我们的责任,不管履行这种责任有多么难。每天的工作都要按符合职业道德的方式进行,这是我们每一个人都应当保护的XXXXXXX最大的商业优势之一:我们诚信正直的声誉。
