Why We Are Rotarians

 Members share why being a Rotarian enriches their lives.

The History of the 4-Way Test

The 4-Way Test is at the forefront of the culture for the Chagrin Valley Rotary Club members. From the earliest days of our organization, Rotarians have been concerned with promoting high ethical standards in our professional lives.
In 1932, when he was asked to take charge of a company facing bankruptcy, Rotarian Herbert J. Taylor created The 4-Way Test. This 24-word test was created as a statement for employees to follow both in their business and personal lives. It became a guide for sales, production, advertising, and all relations with dealers and customers. The survival of that company is credited with this philosophy.
Taylor would later serve as Rotary International President and this test was adopted by the Rotary organization 1943.
The 4-Way Test asks four simple questions:

1. Is it the Truth?
2. Is it Fair to all concerned?
3. Will it build Goodwill and Better Friendships?
4. Will it be Beneficial to all concerned?

The 4-Way Test has been translated into more than a hundred languages and published in thousands of ways. It’s a philosophy that guides the interactions of Rotarians in their personal and professional lives and is the driving force behind the actions they take within their communities.
