In 1932, Herbert J. Taylor wrote down four questions on a small white piece of paper to serve as an “ethical yardstick” for his employees. His simple creation has come to be known as The Four-Way Test. Revered by Rotarians; it has been translated into more than 100 languages and recited weekly at club meetings around the globe. Since it was developed in 1932, it has never ceased to be relevant. Its four brief questions are not based on culture or religion. Instead, they are a simple checklist for ethical behavior. They transcend generations and national borders.
