The 4-Way Test

From the earliest days of Rotary, Rotarians have been 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 (who later served as Rotary International’s president) when he was asked to take

charge of a company that was facing bankruptcy. This 24-word test for employees to use in

making decisions in their business and professional lives became the guide for sales, production,

advertising, and all relations with suppliers and customers. The survival of the company is

credited to this simple philosophy. Adopted by Rotary in 1943, the 4-Way Test has been

translated into more than a hundred languages and published in thousands of ways. It asks the

following four questions:

Of the things we think, say or do:

1. Is it the TRUTH?

2. Is it FAIR to all concerned?


4. Will it be BENEFICIAL to all concerned?

The Purpose and Goals of the Contest

The purpose of the 4-Way Test Speech Contest is to foster the principles of ethics in every day

life as well as in business. The Contest is designed to introduce high school students to Rotary by

creating interest through a competitive speech contest, sponsored by their local Rotary club.
