Code of ethics policy statement Natural Animal Sense (NAS) maintains certain policies to guide all representatives with respect to standards of conduct expected in areas where improper activities could damage the business’s reputation. The purpose of this policy is to affirm the required standards of conduct and practices expected within NAS.
Any representative of NAS's actions under this policy are significant indications of the individual's judgment and competence.
Statement of policy NAS expects all representatives to use only legitimate practices when supporting clients. Any action or "bribes" intended to induce or reward favourable decisions are wholly unacceptable.
The provisions of this section are not intended to apply to ordinary and reasonable business gifts not of substantial value, customary in local business relationships and not violative of law as applied in that environment. When outsourcing specialised consultants, NAS will employ only reputable, qualified individuals who follow an ethos that incorporates non-forceful methods of work.
Principle behaviour that is strictly against NAS policy. MIS-USING COMPANY TIME: When working under the banner of NAS we will only carry out duties that we are qualified or duties that we have been designated to fulfil. Any other work will be beyond the boundaries of NAS and the business name cannot be used in any shape or form. ABUSIVE OR BULLYING BEHAVIOUR: We will always show respect to everyone we encounter, at all times, irrelevant to their actions. THEFT: Honesty and trust are at the forefront of all our relationships. LYING OR DECEITFUL BEHAVIOUR: Any and every representative of NAS and CHANT will work with integrity, honesty and respect at all times.
Our ethical principles Our ethical principles are the values that set the ground rules for all that we do as representatives of NAS. As we aim to achieve responsible success, we will be challenged to balance these principles against each other, always mindful of our promise that we will achieve responsible success. Our ethical principles are: HONESTY: We will not say things that are false. We will never deliberately mislead. We will be as candid as possible, openly and freely sharing information, as appropriate to the relationship. PROMISE-KEEPING: We will go to great lengths to keep our commitments. We will not make promises that can't be kept, and we will not make promises on behalf of NAS unless we have the authority to do so. FAIRNESS: We will create and follow a process and achieve outcomes that a reasonable person would call unbiased and nonarbitrary. RESPECT FOR OTHERS: We will be open and direct in our communication, and receptive to influence. We will honour and value the abilities and contributions of others, embracing the responsibility and accountability for our actions in this regard. COMPASSION: We will maintain an awareness of the needs of others and act to meet those needs whenever possible. We will also minimize harm whenever possible. We will act in ways that are consistent with our commitment to social responsibility. INTEGRITY: We will live up to NAS’s ethical principles, even when confronted by personal, professional and social issues.
The college of Holistic and Natural Therapies (CHANT) Anyone representing or acting on behalf of NAS or CHANT as an educator (and possible future educational leader), will follow the personal codes of conduct as well as the code of ethics. These encompasses COMMUNICATION: We will aim to provide relevant and clear methods of communication that are adaptable and in the best interests of the student. We will always show respect in our use of language and we will consistently use varying methods of teaching (visual, conversational and practical). SHARED GOALS: We will always strive to achieve common goals that are in the best interests of all parties involved. We will not look upon solutions or methods of teaching as our own or traditional. OPEN-MINDEDNESS: We will strive to work in a manner to which we teach. A holistic approach will be taught by example. Every student has a voice and an opinion, and they are encouraged to use them.
