Under the Whistleblower Protection Act, employees who disclose illegal or improper activities are fully protected. The secretary is obviously troubled by the situation at her work. Refusing to prepare false expense reports for her boss is one way that the secretary expresses her feeling strongly that her company should do what is right. “The whistleblower profile is such that, if nothing is done to respond to their internal complaints, they often feel compelled to disclose to authorities outside the company-even to the media” (Halbert, Ingulli, 2012). In the primary interest of our entity, its incumbent upon employers to find a right balance between the exceptions to the employment-at-will doctrine to avoid liabilities associated with the violations of the exceptions.
It is important not to speak out of angry emotions, and again sometimes it is best to tell an employee that one may need to think on the matter first before responding. While it may not seem like a "big deal" it is important to make sure that the words that are used when speaking to employees are simple and clear. Some employees may not understand the use of large words, and therefore the message that the manager / supervisor is trying to convey may be lost. Good grammar is also a must for every type communication. Use of slang terms is not a wise idea, as what is acceptable in generation / culture could be offensive to the next.. We must make sure we are saying exactly what we mean to and clearly enough that so that others are going to hear exactly what the manager / supervisor is trying to say.
He decided to continue reconfiguring a complex but disjointed supply chain to produce a strategic asset. He expressed his reasoning to create a path for the company independent of all competitors. Copying what the competition has already been done was not helpful in his eyes. Creating the atmosphere to help company goals and objectives while opening paths to improve other factions was a good initial approach to the problem. He wanted a brand supported by process, a path that would be able to consume the markets now to be able to have enough capitol for another market to relieve them of its pressure.
This provides the most feasible resolution because of the ability to integrate the governmental regulations and for McBride to begin adhering to more ethical practices while maintaining some level of control and creating greater consumer trust. The current path of unethical practices, the insistence on maintaining total decision making control, and lack of corporate governance will lead McBride towards financial destruction and /or being removed as the CEO of his organization by the board
Scenario 1: 1. Bryan should stick to his instincts and return the clock. No one enjoys upsetting the ones they love; but keeping the clock could portray the company in a negative light, and possibly cost Bryan his job. 2. The ISM code of standards says that all forms of manifestations and commercial bribery should be denounced.
Conceptual blocking plays a huge role in today's organizational settings and everyday life. Conceptual blocking is a mindset that prevents people from seeing a problem from a unique perspective ("Habits that block creativity"). Conceptual blocks make problem solving difficult as it makes us think with a very restrictive criteria. Because of this, conceptual blocking leads to managers adopting solutions to problems that are a lot less desirable or overlooking ideas that would allow things to be done in an entirely different way. Reduction in conceptual blocking is heavily desired as it fosters outside-the-box thinking and leads to innovation.
During my research I have concluded the foundation of a good organization is regular and complete communication. Without it, confusion could easily arise, which leads to conflict and reduced productivity. My current work performance is clearly based on my resistance to change. My resistance was a direct result of feeling that my organization did not care about me or my input. After taking this course and getting a better understanding on how organizations function I can now make an informed decision
From Ethical system perspective, making and sustaining a strong ethical culture is key to creating a organization which encourages people to make good ethical decisions and behaving ethical every day. There are many factors, which lead people to take ethical shortcuts. But when factors increases or made to exploit ethical standards, ethical culture in whole corporate tends to failure of ethical standards at all level. Our perception of whether we do “what’s right” depends on things such as situation, time frame or (Oldhand, 2016)expectation of others. Ethics are like rules and when it is exploited for any reason which is as judged by us is right, can also be wrong to the others observing.
In consideration of the issue, the conflict of interest arises between the wish of the customers to use an application without advertising and the wish of businesses to have an opportunity to use the messenger for their marketing needs and sending advertisements. According to some considerations, the conflict of interests might appear useful for the company. However, in most cases, the conflict of interest “undermines trust” and ultimately tends to reduce the revenue (Lawrence & Weber 101). Nevertheless, with reference to the rights method of ethical reasoning and the identification of the right for privacy as the core human right, privacy of the users should be a primary concern of WhatsApp managers. Besides, identification of the right to privacy as the fundamental human rights supported by both international and national law systems, keeping privacy is the primary task of the company (Rotenberg).
If so, why? I believe that most managers probably use punishment when they feel trapped or pressured from people above themselves. Ultimately, punishment is used as a means of coercing someone into doing something they otherwise are not doing. With any sort of punishment, the offender must be convinced that the consequences of the punishment outweigh the benefit of continuing to do business as usual. If the offender feels as if it is more beneficial to continue to slack off because of the work required to put forth an effort, the punishment will be useless.
