Almost every week there's a front-page story about a company or a company's employee, or an elected or non-elected official, engaging in an activity that presents a conflict of interest. Without a doubt, the surge in conglomerates and joint ventures has increased the potential for conflicts of interest to arise.

It is imperative that companies adhere to the highest levels of integrity and fairness in the way they conduct their business. Only then can they maintain public trust and confidence.

As an employee, you are in a position of trust and it is your duty to act in the company's best interests. Private and personal interests that could interfere with your objectivity are a matter of legitimate concern to those who rely on you—clients, customers, colleagues, and the company.
