Not only did the company bid adieu to its former name, but it also ditched the age-old, “Don’t be evil” well-known motto, replacing it with, “Do the right thing.” The new parent company, Alphabet, has drafted a new set of protocols and code of conduct, and posted yesterday in the afternoon for employees.
