This Week: Some of the key questions that you could ask

  •  Do I explain clearly what I promise to do and do I keep to that promise?
  •  Do I look at ways to improve the service I provide to my clients?
  •  How can I help my clients better understand the surveying services that I am offering?

  •  Am I providing a professional service for a professional fee?
  •  Would the client still employ me if they knew more about me and the workload I have? If not, why not?
  •  Do I put undue pressure on myself and colleagues (especially junior colleagues) to do more than we actually can?

But remember Ethics is not the easiest of subjects and not often immediately straight forward, but requires an element of interpretation and of course a good moral compass.
