CODE OF ETHICS


FEIEA, the European Association for Internal Communication, is dedicated to supporting and encouraging co-operation and best practice among its national member associations.

As professional communicators, we promote the highest standards in working together and in dealing with business, economic, academic and social organizations across Europe.

FEIEA and its member associations have an obligation to maintain and uphold these standards of ethical conduct, across nationalities and borders.

The general principles in this code of ethics set out the professional standards expected of FEIEA and its member associations.

  4. Integrity. We do not use confidential information gained as a result of professional activities for personal benefit. We are honourable and fair and do the right thing.
