Rotary is a worldwide organization of business and professional leaders
that provides humanitarian service, encourages high ethical standards
in all vocations, and helps build goodwill and peace in the world.
Approximately 1.2 million Rotarians belong to more than 31,000 Rotary
clubs located in 166 countries. The Object of Rotary is to encourage
and foster the ideal of service as a basis of worthy enterprise and, in
particular, to encourage and foster:
- First. The development of acquaintance as an
opportunity for service
- Second. High ethical standards in business and
professions; the recognition of the worthiness of all useful
occupations, and the dignifying of each Rotarian's occupation as an
opportunity to serve society
- Third. The application of the ideal of service in
each Rotarian's personal, business, and community life;
- Fourth. The advancement of international
understanding, goodwill, and peace through a world fellowship of
business and professional persons united in the ideal of service.
From the earliest days of the organization, Rotarians
were concerned with promoting high ethical standards in their
professional lives. One of the world's most widely printed and quoted
statements `of business ethics is The
4-Way Test, which was created in 1932 by Rotarian Herbert
J. Taylor. Of the things we think, say or do:
- Is it the TRUTH?
- Is it FAIR to all concerned?
- Will it build GOODWILL and BETTER FRIENDSHIPS?
- Will it be BENEFICIAL to all concerned?>
