#1. Avoiding Any Conflict of Interest
By conflict of interest, we refer to any competition between loyalties for your fellow colleagues, friends, families and commitment to the company or the customers. Such conflicts of interest should be avoided at all costs. There might also be situations in which an existing condition can develop into a conflict of interest.
In cases of such conflicting situations, you may deal with it by delving into three different questions.
- Is the activity you are going to embark upon come as an incentive to me, my friends or family, be it in reality or apparently?
- Does this action, in any way, tend to affect adversely my reputation in Jamkain Media Ventures or question my loyalty or ability to serve the company?
- Is it possible that this action could be thwarting for the company or myself if it got exposed in the media?
The key to determining a conflict of interest is answering these questions. If you answered with a ‘yes’ to any of the three questions above, the activity is more likely to prove to be a conflict of interest, and you should take steps to avoid it at all costs.
