Abstract

Changes in social life tend to put life away from the principles of traditional morality, but not from the need to build modern, gradually sustainable ethical principles, as a condition for finding new ways of building civic behaviour. Adapting the ethics and ways of bringing people to the present is not a process that can be accomplished without proper ethical knowledge and without the presence of educational institutions that have as their primary task the perfection of man's moral behaviour.
Ethics in work for an institution are seen as a good promoter of performance, because the ethical identity of the public servants, especially the state-related ones, is very important for the public as well as for the other stakeholders for that institution. To define the ethical actions of public servants, it is necessary to clearly understand the purpose and mission in the public service.
Observance of the law and ethical procedures in the public administration, as the only and the most accurate way to follow, undoubtedly leads to the progress of work and achievement of performance as an individual as well as the public administration as one.
