  1 Introduction Boeing as a company was established by Mr. William Boeing in the year 1916 with its maiden flights being launched in the same year. After undergoing a lot of structural changes owing to the change in the law in US, the company’s largest aircraft Boeing 314  Clipper was first flown in June 1938. This aircraft could carry 90 passengers on day flight and 40 during the night flight became huge success and allowed the flight all across the world. The next model launched was of307 Stratoliner, the world’s first pr  essurized-cabin transport aircraft. The specialty of this aircraft was that it could fly at the altitude of 20,000 feet (Krugman 1986). The journey of Boeing never stopped after that. It designed bombers during the world-war. Military aircraft became its another advanced specialty (Leary, 1995). In 1950s the company started its first jet airliner with a design of four engines meant for the 156 passengers, making it a leader in the market. Next came Boeing 737 with three engines followed 727 with the twin engine concept. In 1970s, the Boeing 747 was launched which had increased capacity of 450 passengers. Further versions were discovered to meet with the increased air traffic and passengers load. The learning points from the Boeing case A code of conduct is a set of rules outlining the social norms and rules and responsibilities of, or  proper practices for, an individual, party or organization. Related concepts include ethical, honor, moral codes and religious laws. In its 2007 International Good Practice Guidance, Defining and Developing an Effective Code of Conduct for Organizations , the International Federation of Accountants provided the following working definition: Principles, values, standards, or rules of  behaviour that guide the decisions, procedures and systems of an organization in a way that (a) contributes to the welfare of its key stakeholders, and (b) respects the rights of all constituents affected by its operations. A common code of conduct is written for employees of a company, which protects the business and informs the employees of the company's expectations. It is ideal for even the smallest of companies to form a document containing important information on expectations for employees. The document does not need to be complex or have elaborate policies,  but the file needs a simple basis of what the company expects from each employee.  2 1. Non-Discrimination and Harassment It is the policy of The Boeing Company to attract and retain the best qualified people available without regard to race, color, religion, national srcin, gender, sexual orientation, gender identity, age, physical or mental disability, or veteran status. Our nondiscrimination policy applies to applicants as well as employees and covers all terms and conditions of employment, including recruiting, hiring, transfers, promotions, terminations, compensation and benefits. Discrimination or harassment based on any of the above factors is prohibited, as is retaliation against a person who has made a complaint or given information regarding possible violations of this policy. The purpose of Ethics Recommitment events is to reinforce the importance of ethics and good  business conduct at all times. Recommitment offers the opportunity to learn and to share knowledge and understanding at individual work sites. It provides a place and a time for employees to ask questions about ethics decisions, to learn more from real life case studies and to have meaningful discussions on how to deal with ethical situations or matters. In some instances, we are including our annual ethics refresher training the Ethics Challenge as part of the Ethics Recommitment event this year. That training, which includes real-life work examples from our  business units, will occur annually instead of three times a year. We plan to unify our efforts into a single enterprise wide Ethics Recommitment event in 2005. 2. Work Environment and Compensation They are committed to promoting a work environment that fosters communication, productivity, creativity, teamwork, and employee engagement. As a global company, we seek to provide employees with compensation and benefits that are fair and equitable for the type of work and geographic location (local market) where the work is being performed, and competitive with other world-class companies. Their ethical climate is healthy but continues to get healthier. We have had several isolated failures that have hurt us in a very public way. On the other hand, this has also raised the awareness of how important it is for all of us to be watchful and to protect our company from undue harm. When you read news articles regarding Boeing’s failures, it is important to remember that there are many instances of positive news about our company, and that we are growing healthier every  3 day through increased awareness such as training, education, improved processes and recommitment sessions. Every Boeing employee plays a part in our ethical climate by learning more about ethics, by asking more questions, by “doing the right thing” and by seeking h elp when necessary. 3. Expected behaviors The Boeing Code of Conduct outlines expected behaviors for all Boeing employees. Boeing will conduct its business fairly, impartially, in an ethical and proper manner, and in full compliance with all applicable laws and regulations. In conducting its business, integrity must underlie all company relationships, including those with customers, suppliers, communities and among employees. The highest standards of ethical business conduct are required of Boeing employees in the performance of their company responsibilities. Employees will not engage in conduct or activity that may raise questions as to the company’s honesty, impartiality, reputation or otherwise cause embarrassment to the company. There are many ways an employee can get help; all are good. An employee can go to their supervisor or Human Resources, call or write the Ethics Line anonymously, if they want or seek out their Ethics Advisor.
