I will also give a real world example of an ethical issue which affected me in the hiring process. In the role of management managers themselves play a vital role.
Morals are the beliefs of a person’s perception of right and wrong. Ethics and morals in most instances can be interchanged but the words are confusing if the person does not have the right understanding. Weber (2008) states, “Morally, one can support anything, while ethically we require reason and justification for what we believe.” A person’s morals help the person decide what is ethical right or wrong. As a person has personal ethics he or she has to follow, the person also has to follow the business ethics of the company he or she works. Personal vs. Business Ethics Personal ethics is one’s mind determines what is right or wrong.
2. What are some possible explanations for the hesitancy to discuss ethics in the workplace? Conversations about ethics and values can be challenging. We struggle with openly disagreeing with other people on moral grounds, since it may appear that in doing so we place ourselves on the “moral high ground.” In addition, there is a perception that someone who is willing to talk about ethics lacks the toughness to be an effective leader (Adenle, 2011). This is based on the assumption that making tough choices means, making choices that are unethical.
Another possible disadvantage is the recruiter has no idea or feel for the company and its culture. By doing the hiring yourself, it has implications of providing better quality employees that fit the company’s ideal employee profile. It will be easier to screen candidates since you know the strengths you would like an employee to possess. This will help preserve

Some employees will try to produce more for fear of losing their jobs, but this does not provide positive motivation which, in my opinion, is a better means of motivation. I do not feel that these ranked appraisals necessarily boost morale by pointing out an employee’s ranking in production when they are hardworking, show up on time, and don’t miss days. For employees that don’t try and don’t want to work, this an excellent tool for trimming the fat, but not a motivational technique. It could also help to make short-term production goals, but could serve to further disgruntle employees without a perceived positive motivational enforcements. From an expectancy theory point of view, in my opinion, the forced ranking performance appraisals would still need to be coupled with goal setting and rewards to motivate the employees to step up their efforts to work harder, and to be more efficient and productive.

the products that are supplied are of a certain quality. By doing this it will help a business to flourish as consumers are more likely to buy a product because the business has made it to a certain standard. Another key aspect of Kantian ethics is doing something because of one’s duty, not because they have been influenced by others. For example, if a business man gave a customer the correct change he should be doing it out of duty as it is morally right, not out of selfish reasons because it will make him and his business look impressive; this would make his doing morally wrong.
In order to become a great leader, you need to be a follower first. Here are the three reasons why a leader should be a follower first: Better understanding of the plight of subordinates A leader who came from the ranks usually knows and understands the plight of his or her underlings. You won't only be able to empathize with your teammates, but you will also know the tricks under their sleeves. You will know when to show compassion and when to be strict. It is a known fact that employees or followers have tendencies to procrastinate, look for ways to make their jobs easier even if the quality isn't good, and try to steal company resources, such as time and supplies.
