The review of United Air Temp by the Ethics in Business Committee said in part that “United Air Temp, Inc. is a company of principle-centered professionals who believe that their most valuable asset is the trust of their customers. While it does not have a written ethics policy, the company has a long established culture of doing the right thing – always. United Air Temp believes that being ethical is a very easy-to-understand principle that does not require extensive analysis, as most people have a solid grasp of what is right and what is wrong. The difficulty comes when applying the principle when it has a negative short term implications on the company, or an associate.”
The basic principles United Air Temp employs in ensuring that it does the “right thing” include: if something is done wrong, it is fixed, no matter the cost; if people have the perception that the company did something wrong, the company removes all finanical reward from the equation; United Air Temp always crosses the bridge to understand its customers point of view.
