589 words - 3 pages

When I was sixteen years old, my dad let me take his 1972 XR-750 Sportster for a cruise around the block. It was one of the most exciting things I have ever done in my life. I was terrified by the movement without the security, and I was thrilled by it at the same time. It was like riding a roller coaster without a safety harness. At that moment. I fell in love with motorcycles, and with the name Harley-Davidson.Harley-Davidson is an American Icon. The name itself suggests a sense of class and style with a tough and rugged twist.

The Harley-Davidson Code Of Business Conduct is an outline for all its employees and their business behavior. It includes the Company's Values: "Tell the truth, Be fair, Keep your promises, Respect the individual, and Encourage intellectual curiosity" (Code 4), and how they are implemented into the business decision making process with such questions asIs my action consistent with the Harley-Davidson Values? Is my action consistent with approved Company policies or practices? Does my action conform to the spirit of this Code of Business Conduct and comply with the law? Could my action be perceived as improper? (Code 5).The Harley-Davidson Code Of Business Conduct also covers a broad spectrum of business conduct, such as communications, compliance with the law, environmental concerns, fair employment, and many more. This to me, as a consumer, is not only good business because of the ethical concerns that are more thoroughly investigated by consumers, but as a future manager and leader, I have learned of another way to bring about a sense of culture through sharing ethics and values within an organization.So when I finally can afford to by a Harley-Davidson, preferably a 2007 VRSCDX Night Rod Special, I will not regret my decision. Not only will I get to feel the excitement I did when I drove my dad's bike, and not only will I get to feel that I have achieved a sense of status, but I will feel that I have made an ethical decision in my purchase of a Harley-Davidson Motorcycle.Works CitedEveryday Values: The Harley-Davidson Code Of Business Conduct.
