One of the world’s most widely printed and quoted statements of business ethics is The Four-Way Test, which was created in 1932 by Rotarian Herbert J. Taylor. The Four-Way Test includes these questions: Is it the truth? Is it fair to all concerned? Will it build good will and better friendships? Will it be beneficial to all concerned? Cleveland Rotary Club President Sean Wessel said, “Our Club is proud to recognize these four outstanding individuals for the exemplary way they carry themselves in our community. They all clearly adhere to the principles of Rotary’s Four-way Test, and we’re happy to honor them in this way.” The Four-Way Test was adopted by Rotary in 1943 and has been translated into more than a hundred languages.
