ETHICAL ISSUES 2
Ethical issues
Introduction
Ethics is a word used to refer to the habit of meticulously performing and executing one's
obligations with honesty, accountability, integrity and most of all without reproach. In most
organizations, achieving the threshold of ethics has proven to be time and again beyond the reach
of a majority of employees and even top managers or business owners themselves. Without a
guiding policy or regulations on the issue of ethics, many are swayed and find themselves falling
way below ethical standards. Therefore, it goes without saying that policy is of utmost
significance in an organization.
As much as there could be negative ethical issues that bedevil organizations, positivity in
ethics can't be ignored and should be compounded. Team culture as a moral issue is a factor of
ethics that defines the organization to its members, customers and even partners hence any
company would strive to their level best to present an organizational culture that is not only
marketable to consumers but is also workable to partners and desirable to admirers
(Mason,1986).
Parameters of ethical decision making
During analysis of an ethical or moral dilemma, the first step is always straightforward,
getting the facts. Unfortunately for us, facts only tell us what is not should be done. It is for this
reason that some philosophers came up with a five-prong approach that seeks to simplify the
decision-making process that involves ethical matters. These approaches are therefore known as
the parameters of decision making in ethics. When forming a policy on ethics, the methods that
could be used are the utilitarian, rights, justice/fairness, the common good and the virtue
approaches (Slade & Prinsloo, 2013).
