Respond to the following for this discussion:
1. Visit the websites of at least two high profile companies or organizations and locate their code of ethics. Identify the common elements that you see in these codes.
2. Consider your personal score from the personal business ethics questionnaire that you completed and respond to the following scenario. What decisions would you make?
You are a senior level manager who is in the process of expanding your companyâs business to overseas markets. The company will be buying an existing manufacturing facility in the far-East that employs roughly 500 local people. Salaries are very low and working conditions are poor. There is evidence that human rights have been violated. You want to improve this situation for these employees that you will inherit, but you have been warned that other companies in this area will consider you a threat. And, such improvements will also increase costs and make the companyâs expansion less profitable.
Additionally, if the president of the company tasked you with revising the companyâs code of ethics, what would you write as the top five items in your code of ethics? Explain.
