ETHICS LEADERSHIP MOMENT: Your project manager asks you to use your company-owned pick-up truck to transport some scrap metal from one of our projects to his house. He tells you that he intends to recycle the scrap and use the money he receives from a local metal recycler to donate to his son’s little league program for new uniforms for all of the players. Does that sound right?
Answer: No! Any materials recycled from any of our projects and the proceeds are Company property and must be properly accounted for. Taking those proceeds for one’s personal benefit is theft.
