    • Baker Hughes Business Code of Conduct

      Baker Hughes (2002)
      The Baker Hughes standards of conduct have been in place for some time. This document, entitled the Baker Hughes Business Code of Conduct, is an expansion of those standards. It incorporates our guiding values and it highlights the types of ethical and legal issues that confront us in the marketplace. The Code of Conduct is intended as a useful guide on how to identify and resolve those issues. If you are a new employee, we urge you to familiarize yourself with the principles embodied in the Code of Conduct. If you are a long-time employee, we expect that you will revisit the Code of Conduct from time to time. The Code of Conduct means very little without the personal commitment of each of us.

      "Before commenting on some of the ethical issues raised by this case, one has to note that certain details about the trial are not clear. For example, it is not stated whether this is a multi-centre trial, but one may assume it is. It is also not clear whether the serious adverse events reported recently are from this centre or from other centres"

      Background: Every year many organizations formulate a Code of Ethics (COE) but when it comes to implementing, it does not achieve the desired purposes. Ineffectiveness of COEs can stem from different factors and surely, one of them is bad formulation. This research was conducted to identify the barriers to effective formulation of COEs in one of the main state universities of medical sciences in Iran. Methods: A qualitative approach using thematic analysis in three stages of descriptive coding, interpretative coding and overarching themes was adopted to analyze data collected through 27 semi-structured interviews. This study was conducted in 2014-15 at Shahid Beheshti University of Medical Sciences, Tehran, Iran. Results: Totally 135 descriptive themes, 12 interpretive themes and 3 overarching themes emerged through analyzing interviews. Conclusion: In order to have an implementable COE, 12 barriers in three categories including “goal-setting”, “approach” and “content” of the COE, must be removed. In “goal-setting”, real cultural conditions of the medical university must be considered. Moreover, the COE must be in response to perceived internal needs and its philosophy must be clear for all members of the university. Besides, the formulation “approach” of the COEs must be specialist, participatory and expertised. Finally, in “content”, different stakeholders with diverse values, levels of knowledge and needs should be carefully addressed. In addition, it is proposed to emphasize religious and humane values to encourage participation of people. as a final point, the university should avoid imitation in the content of the COE, and conceptualize the values in motivating, inspirational and guiding words.

    • Baseline Study for the Socioeconomic Impact of Tamadera Insurance Program in Jakarta

      Sulaksono, Bambang; Yusrina, Asri; Dewi, Rika Kumala; Sim, Armand Arief (The SMERU Institute, 2012-02)
      "The Tamadera insurance program is a female-targeted multifunctional micro-endowment saving plan with integrated life insurance and critical illness coverage that was launched in October 2010. Given the pioneering nature of the program, this study is being carried out as the first stage of an impact assessment study of Tamadera. The study is conducted in Jakarta Timur and Jakarta Utara. Using quantitative and qualitative surveys, the study found that sampled household heads are generally well educated as most of them are graduates from senior high school. Family size of the sampled households is higher than the BKKBN’s ideal family size. Family size is found to have a positive correlation with the position of the household within the quintile per capita expenditure. Health and education are found to be important aspects in influencing a household’s financial position. In accessing funds for medical treatment and their children’s education, sampled households tend to be dependent on the availability of their own money. Indeed, Jakarta Utara is found to be lagging behind Jakarta Timur. Large household sizes, high numbers of households receiving Raskin, and low education levels of household heads are some of the conditions found commonly in Jakarta Utara. Meanwhile, a widely held perception among households in Jakarta Timur about their ability to finance their children’s education shows that they regard this more highly than households in Jakarta Utara. The level of financial knowledge and ability of the community remains low. Respondents in the first quintile have the lowest percentage score in a financial literacy test compared to respondents in the other quintiles. Moreover, the respondents’ educational attainment and age are statistically significant in regard to their financial literacy score. Most of the respondents are interested in a savings program that provides health insurance and a death benefit. Amongst those who are interested in the program, the first priority for their Tamadera savings would be to provide finance for their children’s education. However, one of the rules of the program is that savings accounts can only be withdrawn from after five years and that there is a 15% reduction penalty if they decide to withdraw their savings before the end of the five year term. This penalty has shown to discourage respondents from joining the program."
