10 Cases of corruption. Production and logistics ethics * A group of people or person responsible for finding and hiring, finding applicants, employee skills imporvement and benefits given to employees while following government rules. Gender discrimination: http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-us-canada-12601177
Women being mis-treated by managers in Walmart stores (Since Walmart owns Asda the same thing could be happening in asda stores too) Men recieving promotions was before female employees do. If people get offended by what Walmmat has been accused of then people might not want to go to their stores anymore which would also have a big impact on Asda because Walmart owns Asda. Sales & Marketing ethics are the rules and values that businesses follow when advertising their products or services to customers. http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/business-16002303
Shows 4 supermarkets including Asda about offers they provide customers that help be cheaper than the other supermarkets offer. * Asda needs to be careful with what they offer their customers, if they keep trying to be cheaper than other supermarkets they could start selling products at a price too cheap and either have to go back on their word which would be unethical or lose money because of the offers. How does Asda's production methods effect the environment. * It is important for Asda to be recycling on a consistant basis because it looks good on the business
* If Asda didn't recycle a big chunk of their customers would go to another business that does recycle in a method of protest http://www.kcra.com/news/green-energy-business-accused-of-dumping-hazardous-waste/-/11797728/20102242/-/e5usj6/-/index.html?absolute=true
Business accused of dumping hazardous waste which is a violation of state laws. Possibly resulting in the business being shut down or receiving a massive fine which is something Asda should hope to avoid if they want people to come to their stores.
