Transcript of Recognizing an Ethical Issue

Integrity: Further Explained
These are related by what we call values. First, our values should result in actions that result in “good” things; second, people like to have a consistent response. Both of these make up integrity.
You are more likely to make a similar decision in similar circumstances, which is what we call integrity. Imagine laughing at a child’s use of a particular word one day, then scolding her the next for the same thing – that’s unfair, and you would truly lack integrity.
Ethical Issues
A problem or situation that requires a person or organization to choose between alternatives that must be evaluated as right (ethical) or wrong (unethical).
Honesty refers to a facet of moral character and connotes positive and virtuous attributes such as
(1) integrity
(2) truthfulness, and
(3) straightforwardness

The absence of lying, cheating, theft, etc. Furthermore, honesty means being trustworthy, loyal, fair, and sincere.
The quality of being honest and having strong moral principles; moral uprightness.
Fairness is the quality of making judgments that are free from discrimination. Judges, umpires, teachers, and businessmen should all strive to practice fairness.

Fairness is the most important trait of a boss for who whom they would want to work.
When you treat your employees fairly they spend less time worrying about who else is getting an unfair share. They don't spend a lot of time looking for ways to increase their own share. They spend less time looking for another job. And they spend more time working for you and getting more done.
The Result of Being Fair...
When you treat others fairly two things happen. Your own employees notice and respect you for it. It reinforces their belief that you are treating them fairly and will continue to do so. Second, the other people who you treat fairly will respond in kind. You will get better cooperation from them. That makes your job and the job of your employees easier too.

Integrity in Business
The company strives to maintain the highest standards of ethical conduct and corporate responsibility worldwide through the application of the principles within its Business Integrity and Ethics Policy. These issues are further safeguarded through corporate governance processes and monitoring by the board and its sub-committees. All employees have a duty to follow the principles set out in the Business Integrity and Ethics Policy. It is integrated into the Group Control Manual and is available to staff at all sites.
Why Is Honesty Important in a Business?
Honest business practices inspire staff and customers with respect for your mission. Honest business practices build foundations of trust with colleagues, competitors, staff, customers and every other individual and entity. When employers deal honestly with their staff, employees are motivated to drive the business forward. Creditors and investors express confidence by funding company development and consumer confidence is positive.
Why Is Honesty Important in a Business?
Treating employees, partners, investors and customers in the ways the business owner would want them to treat him creates an environment of trust and support. An owner can resist the short-term gratification at the expense of long-term commitment to the web of relationships in which his business is involved. He can avoid the blinding trap that crops up when dishonesty clouds perception. The Golden Rule helps to diminish greed, envy and the actions that accompany those less than virtuous qualities.
Integrity: Further Explained
Integrity usually means that a person is trustworthy, reliable and has a set of values that make them respected by their friends and colleagues. More literally, integrity means a consistent combination of attributes that work together.
You and I decide what kind of cultural world we live in. Do you want to make things better? Live with courage and integrity in your everyday life—be strong, kind, effective, just, honorable, and polite; stand up boldly and unequivocally for individual liberty and limited government—and set the example for others to follow. If you pay attention, I think you’ll be pleasantly surprised at how much power your own honesty, fairness, and integrity actually holds.
