Policy Elements

The Components of Sea Power’s Code of Ethics

We base Sea Power’s code of ethics on the following basic principles:

  • Respect for others. Treat people as you want to be treated.
  • Integrity and honesty. Tell the truth and avoid any wrongdoing to the best of your ability.
  • Justice. Make sure you’re objective and fair and don’t disadvantage others.
  • Lawfulness. Know and follow the law – always.
  • Competence and accountability. Work hard and be responsible for your work.
  • Teamwork. Collaborate and ask for help.

These basic principles are discussed below.

Respect for others

It’s mandatory to respect everyone you interact with. Be kind, polite and understanding. You must respect others’ personal space, opinions and privacy. Any kind of violence is strictly prohibited and will result in immediate termination. You’re also not allowed to harass or victimize others.

What constitutes harassment or victimization? As a general rule, try to put yourself in someone else’s place. How would you feel if someone behaved a specific way to you? If the answer is “I wouldn’t like it much” or “I would never let them behave like that to me”, then such behavior is not appropriate no matter the person it comes from.

If someone, be it customer, colleague or stakeholder, is offensive, demeaning or threatening toward you or someone you know, report them immediately to the owner or your manager.
Integrity and honesty

First, always keep in mind our organization’s mission. We all work together to achieve our business goals. Your behavior should contribute to our goals, whether financial or organizational.

Be honest and transparent when you act in ways that impact other people We will not tolerate malicious, deceitful or petty conduct. Lies and cheating are impermissible and, if you engage in such conduct, you will face progressive discipline up to immediate termination depending on the nature of your conduct.

Stealing from the company or other people is illegal. If you engage in such illegal conduct, you will be subject to immediate termination.

Conflict of interest

A conflict of interest may occur whenever your interest in a particular subject leads you to actions, activities or relationships that undermine our company. This includes situations like using your position’s authority for your own personal gain or exploiting company resources to support a personal money-making business. If it turns out you have created a conflict of interest for yourself, you will be terminated. If the conflict of interest was involuntary, we will take actions to rectify the situation. If you repeat the offense, you may be terminated.


Don’t act in a way that exploits others, their hard work or their mistakes. Give everyone equal opportunity and speak up when someone else does not.

Be fair and objective when making decisions that can impact other people, including when you’re deciding to hire, promote or fire someone. Be sure that you can justify any decision with written records or examples. Seek and use the most objective methods in any case; for example, when interviewing candidates, ask the same interview questions to all of them and avoid judging non-job-related criteria, like dress, appearance, etc.

Also, don’t discriminate against people with protected characteristics, as this is forbidden by legal statutes and regulations. Sea Power is an Equal Opportunity Employer.

When exercising authority, be fair. Don’t show favoritism toward specific employees and be transparent when you decide to praise or reward an employee.

If you need to discipline an employee, be sure to have prepared a case that you can present to the owner. You must not retaliate against employees or applicants (such as in cases when they’ve filed complaints) as this is prohibited by law.

Be just toward customers or vendors, too. If you think our company was in the wrong in a specific instance, do not try to cover it up or accuse the other side. Discuss the situation with the owner to find solutions that can benefit both sides.


You are obliged to follow all laws which apply to our organization. You must also treat as confidential any company, customer or supplier information that is confidential, proprietary or contains trade secrets. You must not expose, disclose or endanger confidential information of customers, suppliers or employees of our business.
Following all laws regarding fraud, bribery, corruption and any kind of assault is a given. You are also obliged to follow all laws on fair employment practices and non-discrimination and avoid doing business with unlawful organizations.

If you’re not sure what the law is in a specific instance, don’t hesitate to ask the owner or our legal counsel.

Competence and accountability

We all need to put a healthy amount of effort in our work. Not just because we’re all responsible for Sea Power’s success, but also because slacking off affects our colleagues. Incomplete or slow working might hinder other people’s work or cause them to shoulder the burden themselves. This comes in direct conflict with our respect and integrity principles.
Also, take responsibility for your actions. We all make mistakes or need to make tough decisions and it’s important we own up to them. Failing to be accountable on a regular basis or in important situations (e.g. a crucial mistake in our billing records) will result in termination. If you take responsibility and come up with ways to fix your mistakes where possible, you will be in a far better position.


Working well with others is a virtue, rather than an obligation. You will certainly get to work autonomously and be focused on your own projects and responsibilities. But, you should also be ready to collaborate with and help others.
Be generous with your expertise and knowledge. Be open to learning and evolving. If days go by without you consulting or brainstorming with anyone, you are missing out on opportunities for excellence. Instead, work with others and don’t hesitate to ask for help when you need it.
If you have any questions concerning Sea Power’s code of ethics, please raise them with the owner.
