Naming your Code of Conduct is a great idea. This can give life to your Code of Conduct rather than laying out a set of guidelines. Get the employees engaged and make it a contest!

I thought it was interesting to see the phrase "various levels of maturity." Organizations usually employ people ranging in age from 18 to 70. Some things have to be done across the board. Verifying best practices that work for everyone is a must. Great read.
