Part 3: Debrief as class. adapted by Robert Thompson - Faculty of Management, VancouverIslandUniversity 10/19/2018 The Dilemma 8 Ms. Isakson is a middle manager at a multinational automobile manufacturer. She has become aware of a serious safety issue with one of the manufacturer’s vehicles that is the result of a design problem. The report that described this design flaw noted it would cost more than $300 per vehicle to fix the problem if the vehicles were recalled. Since approximately 8-million vehicles have the problem, the total cost would be more than 2.4-billion dollars! The report estimated that over the next five years, approximately 1000 people may die or be seriously injured because of the problem. However, the average settlement for each wrongful death or injury lawsuit related to this problem would be approximately one-million dollars. Therefore, the total costs that the company would face without a recall would be about one-billion dollars – less than half the cost of a recall! Since the company is already in financial trouble and may have to file for bankruptcy if a recall of this magnitude is issued, the report recommended that the company not issue a recall. Corporate management has decided to follow this recommendation and simply deny any problem exists. Ms. Isakson met with those who made this decision and tried to convince them to issue a recall, but they refused. She is morally troubled by this situation. adapted by Robert Thompson - Faculty of Management, VancouverIslandUniversity 10/19/2018 The Solutions - What should Ms. Isakson do? (Pick 3) 9 Drop the issue because she is a single mother and is afraid of being fired if she goes any further. 2. Try to work within company policies in an attempt to change the decision regarding a recall. If the decision could be reversed, the company, its employees, and the general public would all be better off. 3. Since not issuing a recall is a clear violation of provincial and federal law, she must report the situation to the proper authorities. 4. Do not press for a recall because her manager said not to. 5. Do not pursue the issue any further because she knows that her co-workers and employees would be unhappy with her if she does. 6. Drop the issue because a recall might push the company into bankruptcy, and many employees, including her and the people she manages, would lose their jobs. 7. Report the design flaw to the proper authorities because she truly cares about the people whom the design flaw might effect. 8. Report the design flaw to the proper authorities human life is much more important than company profits or keeping her job. 9. Follow her heart and make whatever decision her conscience dictates regardless of the consequences. 10. Contact the press and tell them about the situation because such an action adapted by Robert Thompson - Faculty of Management, VancouverIslandUniversity 10/19/2018 is likely to result in her being seen as a hero. 1. + 10 Factors that impact ethical behaviour: Individual factors Stage of moral development ◼ How do these stages compare to the different “solutions” from the activity? adapted by Robert Thompson - Faculty of Management, VancouverIslandUniversity 10/19/2018 + 11 Factors that impact ethical behaviour: Individual factors Individual characteristics ◼ Values, ego strength and locus of control ◼ How do these concepts relate to the different “solutions” from the activity? adapted by Robert Thompson - Faculty of Management, VancouverIslandUniversity 10/19/2018 + Factors that impact ethical behaviour: 12 Organizational factors ◼ Structural variables Rules, policies and code of ethics ◼ Rewards and performance appraisal ◼ Degree or autonomy/supervision ◼ ◼ Organizational culture Organizational values ◼ Cultural strength ◼ adapted by Robert Thompson - Faculty of Management, VancouverIslandUniversity 10/19/2018 + 13 Factors that impact ethical behaviour: Organizational factors adapted by Robert Thompson - Faculty of Management, VancouverIslandUniversity 10/19/2018 + 14 Factors that impact ethical behaviour: Situational factors ◼ Would you steal prescription medication from a pharmacy? ◼ What if a loved one was severely ill and unable to obtain the medication themselves? adapted by Robert Thompson - Faculty of Management, VancouverIslandUniversity 10/19/2018 + 15 Factors that impact ethical behaviour: Situational factors adapted by Robert Thompson - Faculty of Management, VancouverIslandUniversity 10/19/2018 ...
