TCEG strives to be a market leader in computer consulting, network administration (including Windows XP) and Linux consulting within Surrey, British Columbia, Canada, and eventually the world. We strongly believe that companies and individuals deserve to be treated fairly, and that responsible people and corporations must behave ethically for our society to be a just society. Therefore, TCEG is committed to adhering to the ethical standards of the following organizations, related to our field:
Independent Computer Consultants Association (ICCA) Code of Ethics
Better Business Bureau Code of Ethics (announcement)
The following principles outline in broad terms some of the values that shape the way we do business.
Confidentiality and discretion - We keep your information private, confidential, and secret.
Deep contemplation - It is better to take the necessary time to make a good decision than to risk error by rushing it.
Proportionality - There is no sense in using a sledgehammer to hang a picture. By keeping in mind the scope of our projects, we can allocate our time most effectively.
Balance - We try to spend enough time on the tasks that maximize our productivity and happiness.
Legality - We strive to comply with all applicable laws, and do not knowingly assist others in illegal activities.
Minimal response - Most problems can be solved without throwing everything away. It is often better to treat a problem on its own terms than to apply a cookie-cutter solution with potentially unwanted consequences.
Managing Conflicts of Interest - It is not enough simply to avoid conflicts of interest. Conflicts can arise through staff or officers of TCEG which have nothing to do with TCEG, and TCEG demands a first position in ensuring that, as a company, it is not in a conflict of interest.
