  • Christian professional formation at Uganda Christian University : a reflection

    Opol, Samuel (Globethics Publications, 2024)
    This book describes the way Uganda Christian University (UCU) pioneered the efforts on Christian professional formation in Uganda. After being established by the Church of Uganda in 1997, UCU's purpose is to foster Christian professional formation through education programs rooted in the Anglican evangelical Christian tradition. As an institution of Christian higher education, it has drawn on the rich dual traditions of Christian formation to give it its unique identity. We find in both elements of this tradition the integration of character and the diaconal focus on professional formation. The exploration offered by this book will show that the first side is championed by Bishop Alfred Tucker, the first bishop of the Anglican Diocese of Uganda, while the second follows the American-based Christian higher education.

  • The code of ethics as a tool for managing ethical conflicts in the service sector organizations in the same way as in financial institutions in St. Petersburg, Russia

    This paper is devoted to the code of ethics as a tool for ethical conflict management in service sector organizations in the same way as in financial institutions in St. Petersburg, Russia. It was compiled on the basis of three previous studies: a pilot survey among service workers in 2014 (N 135) that identified problems, set goals and objectives, facilitated developing and testing methodological tools; formalized interview in 2015-2017 (N 483, including 64 managers and 419 employees), when primary empirical information was accumulated; analytical and project research in 2017-2018, whose purpose was to process and analyze the data obtained, to identify the conditions for the establishment of a behavioral ethics for service workers, and to develop practical design recommendations and social technology to build a behavioral ethics for service employees. Thus, this study determined that the code of ethics design and implementation will prevent conflict occurrences at a service sector company. The conclusion was that the introduction and operation of a code of ethics require the involvement not only of company frontline employees, but also of the CEOs.
