Business ethics

Paper , Order, or Assignment Requirements

Introduction: In a complex, multicultural business environment, it is important that business professionals adhere to ethical standards throughout their daily activities. The goal of this course is to introduce you to concepts and guidelines for ethical courses of actions in business. In order to assess your understanding of the material and your ability to apply the required concepts, you will be asked to take on the role of the ethics director for the company in the scenario. You will be asked to design an ethics curriculum for new employees to address the rights and responsibilities of employees and the ethical relationship between employer and employee. You will also be tasked with developing an ethical dilemma for analysis, offering ethical decisions for evaluation, and examining the role of personal values and goals in the workplace. Scenario: You are the ethics officer of a media auditing firm. The company prides itself on only engaging in ethical business practices. In order to ensure that all of its employees understand corporate ethical policy, new employees must attend an ethics training as part of the onboarding process. Additionally, every employee must attend an annual ethics training. These ethical training programs are developed by the auditing firm’s ethics officer, the auditing firm’s human resources (HR) director, and an outside consulting firm. In a joint development session, the team works through the training development materials that will be presented at this year’s two-day ethics training session. This year, the focus is on two primary topics: employees’ rights and responsibilities in the workplace and employer’s ethical responsibilities toward employees. In addition, hypothetical ethical scenarios are developed to evaluate the employees’ understanding of company ethical standards, general ethical decision-making, and desired courses of action. Requirements: Your submission must be your original work. No more than a combined total of 30% of the submission and no more than a 10% match to any one individual source can be directly quoted or closely paraphrased from sources, even if cited correctly. Use the Turnitin Originality Report available in Taskstream as a guide for this measure of originality. The rubric provides detailed criteria for evaluating your submission. You are expected to use the rubric to direct the creation of your submission. Each requirement below may be evaluated by more than one rubric aspect. The rubric aspect titles may contain hyperlinks to relevant portions of the course. A. Take on the role of the ethics officer in the scenario and address the following: 1. Describe three employees’ rights and responsibilities based on the scenario. 2. Evaluate two ethical responsibilities within the context of the employer/employee relationship described in the scenario. 3. Develop one personal ethical business dilemma that can measure employee understanding of the company’s ethical standards. 4. Evaluate the dilemma from part A3 from a utilitarian and relativistic perspective. 5. Describe two common ethical decisions that the employees may face and develop potential actions to test their understanding of corporate ethics and responsibilities. 6. Explain why each ethical decision in part A5 presents an ethical dilemma and how an individual might justify unethical behavior (e.g., common excuses). 7. Create an outline showing how personal goals and values affect workplace decisions, including three supporting examples.
