I choose The Cheesecake Factory and its code of conduct. A code of conduct is a set of rules outlining the responsibilities of or proper practices for an individual, party or organization. The code of conduct is expectations from the staff and expectations from the company to staff. The code of conduct is basically simple and easy to understand.
Our Company encourages a relationship of trust, loyalty, honesty, and responsibility among staff members at all levels. We believe that all staff members deserve to be treated with dignity and respect. We are committed to celebrating the diversity of our workforce and our guests, and respecting each staff member as we work together to achieve excellence in our business. In turn, as a Company staff member, whether you work in a restaurant, the Corporate Center, our Bakery Production Facility in another ...view middle of the document...
We also have no tolerance for drug or alcohol abuse among our staff members in the workplace. Compliance with these policies is essential to our corporate philosophy. Accordingly, all staff members must understand and abide by our policies relating to sexual harassment, drug and alcohol abuse, diversity and nondiscrimination.
All staff members have responsibilities with respect to our Company and its stockholders. Accordingly, staff members must avoid situations that create a conflict of interest or the appearance of a conflict of interest with the Company. A conflict of interest often arises when an individual’s personal interests conflict with those of the Company.
Your responsibility in upholding our Code of Ethics does not end with your separation of employment. Unless compelled to do so by applicable law, former staff members of the Company may not disparage the Company or its officers during or after employment in an attempt to discredit the Company, its assets, and/or future growth.
Every Company staff member has a responsibility to help enforce this Code of Ethics. Additionally, staff members are expected to ensure that all of our suppliers and contractors are aware of, understand and adhere to these standards, as well. If you have a question concerning a potential or possibly existing conflict of interest involving you, another staff member, or any supplier, contractor, or customer, or you otherwise have a question regarding this Code, ask your supervisor or the SVP of Human Resources. If you observe a staff member, supplier, or contractor who has taken, or is planning to take, an action which could be a violation of our Code of Ethics and/or Company policy, or you believe that you may have taken any action, intentionally or otherwise, in violation of this Code, you have the obligation to promptly report the action to your supervisor or a Vice President responsible for your restaurant or department.
