Dear colleagues,

As you all know the topic of the web conference is the Georgian Code of Business Conduct. That is supposed to be a written statement of the principles of doing business, which will be accepted by the businesses residing here, in Georgia step by step.

We need not think, that as soon as we write the GBCC everything will be ethical. No way. Rather by GBCC we need to promote ethical business and goood governance based on the principles, standards, known to each of the players.

The biggest part of these principles I suppose already exist. They are utilized in the relationships right now. But they are not written down and the good practices are not promoted. Therefore, one of the serious part of our discussion regarding the GBCC can be the unwritten rules of doing business.

My question to you is the following. What are these unwritten rules and how can they be formulated? Or there may be just the values, which may or may not be realized for the moment.

For example,

We all know that trust can be one of those unwritten values.

What else?
საუკეთესო სურვილებით,

In my opinion these rules are: Cheating, family ties in business, using the rules they think is right, cutting standard Business ethical rules and Soviet Style of doing business

Two of these can be objectively addressed in the model - Business Code of Conduct - obviously the model will
need to be moduals (or sections of the template that will be published) - but cheating will obviously be addressed objectively. And we can have a section on nepotism - or family ties in business.

Many companies in the States (and probably all over the world) have specific rules that relatives of the management CANNOT be hired. regardless of for what position or role in the company.

Is this too much for Georgia at this point or should we include it in the final publication of our Code of Conduct?

I do not think it is too much at this point, if we consider local ethno psychology and adjust it to local needs, It can be included it in our final paper.

Nevertheless, please note that, we should make some exceptions for small business, where family ties between employees could be beneficial.

In my opinion, before whole system changes in Georgia, it will be impossible to fight off family ties or nepotism in business. As you all know, when one person works in family he is obliged some how to help all the other family members around. Unfortunately, it is well excepted Georgian phenomenon.
I think the above mentioned issue is very crucial, because it is a form of discrimination against others who maybe more suitable and qualified for the job.

p.s. Another unwritten rule in Georgia I think is an Autocratic management style in business. What do you think??

I thought of the painful one.

From my experience, having staff lacking professionalism and experience is another unwritten rule in Georgia. It is a disaster for many Georgian companies.

Dear Tariel,

I think it is the mistake that we are talking about unwritten rules of doing business in Georgia.
We need to say NO! To the "unwritten rules"

Better is discussing about the many cultural similarities (acknowledging many cultural similarities) between Georgia and other world, than Focusing on the few cultural differences
