Ethically and Socially Responsive Business Kandida Noble Strayer University BUS100 Intro to Business Margaret Parrish September 2, 2014 For the Assignment 2: Ethical and Socially Responsive Business; I chose to write and give opinion on The Cheesecake Factory regarding “Code of Ethics or Code of Business Conduct.” I believe the first key area that is of significant importance to the business is the Second Title “Your Responsibilities” Section A “General Standards of Conduct”: I believe this is important to the company’s overall vision of the Code of Ethics because they make it personal to the employee that they have to identify with and be able to visualize these scenarios and be able to act according to the Cheesecake Factories standards. The Second area I believe is important to Cheesecake Factories Code of Ethics Section H “Posting Messages Regarding the Company on Internet Message Boards or Chat Rooms”: I believe the Cheesecake Factory has a right to protect themselves against Slander from a mad in the moment employee who is just wanting to vent about their hard day but doesn’t realize that in that moment of venting they can do so much damage that could potentially have long term effects/damage on Cheesecake Factories reputation. This code is really protecting the employee as well and helps to make the employee have knowledge and understanding that the company is looking out for both parties interest not just the Cheesecake Factories. Lastly Section K “Your Obligation to Communicate and Cooperate”: Basically states it is important for everyone to hold each other accountable and not be intimidated if you see a violation to report it to a supervisor. The only way the Code of ethics will be enforced is if we all take it seriously.

The atmosphere is always bright and inviting and IKEA also provides childcare centers and restaurants. All of these amenities allow the customer to feel more comfortable and contribute to the success of IKEA.
