2007.11.02(Review of 2003.09.30 edition)
No corporate culture - and no weeklong series on the subject - would be complete without a set of rules to keep things running smoothly. So here's one more edition to close out the week with!
(DRESS) CODE （服装）規定
- A code is a set of rules regarding how people should behave. For example:
A dress code is a set of rules regarding what people can and can't wear (e.g., at the office).
A code of conduct for an organization is the set of rules that all members/employees are expected to follow.
A code of ethics is a set of rules regarding what is considered ethical (= morally correct) behavior.
- code は、人々がどのように振る舞うべきかに関して、いくつかの規則を集めたもの、という意味です。例としては、次のようなものがあります。
dress code は、（例えば、職場で）着てもよい服、着てはいけない服に関する規則、つまり、服装規定のことです。
code of conduct は、組織のすべての構成員、または従業員が守るべき規則、つまり、行動規範のことです。
code of ethics は、道徳的と見なされる行為に関する規則、つまり、倫理規定のことです。
- a: The dress code is pretty relaxed at my company. We only have to wear a suit if we're meeting a client.
b: You're lucky. We have a very strict dress code in my office.
- (training a group of new employees)
You each should have received a copy of the company's code of conduct. I'd like to spend a few minutes going over that with you now.
- (chairman of a professional society)
Due to the recent scandals, we think it may be wise to draft a professional code of ethics for the entire industry.
Have a happy Culture Day tomorrow!
