Module 2 Article Sharing: Ethics in the Workplace

Part 1: You will find an business related article from the past 180 days relating to the topic we are covering in this module (Ethics in the Workplace) and provide to a 2-3 paragraph review of the article which includes the title and source of the article, a link directing to the article or an attachment of the article and what your top three takeaways were from this article. As a supervisor or manager, how would you apply these points? Part 2 (Respond to this peer, Karen): After reading this article domestic Violence do become a workplace issue. Each year growing number workplace violence on site are increasing and this can affect employees, customers and clients. The Bureau of Laboinfr Statistics Census of Fatal Occupational reported 4,679 deadly workplace injuries had taken place in the United States in 2014 and 403 were workplace homicide there is a safety concern in today”s work place. Company”s should put into place new policies and training for all employees to look for warning signs, change in behavior and a support group for employees. The information that I have taken away from this article is to be more visual around my peers, to be aware of my surrounding, look for warning signs like depression, anger, the person not enter acting with their peers. Report to the manager any complaints or threats and take it as a serious problem. As a manager I can be proactive by creating an in site committee to assist with educational materials, assist help line for employees to remain anonymous. To make sure all security equipment”s and training policies are update in the employee”s manual because all staff members should feel safe in their work environment also make sure all managers and employees view all policies and procedure every quarter to learn preventative measure when violence becomes a workplace issue. Part 3 (Respond to this peer, Jaclyn): I found this article interesting because the authors took a psychological approach to understanding repetitively unethical behavior, as evidenced in recent scandals like Mitsubishi and Volkswagen tampering with emission test results. The basis behind the study”s results is human nature; the human mind tries to soften the stress or guilt of the questionable act by blurring the memory of it. The researchers called this unethical amnesia. The study, or more accurately nine studies, involved “diverse sample populations, ranging from undergraduate students to online panels of adults. In our studies, we compared individuals” memories of different types of events to examine the quality (including vividness and level of detail) of their memories of their unethical acts as compared with other acts.” The nine studies tried different approaches to put the participant at a crossroads to make either ethical decision. The one study that stands out to me was when the participants read a story, either in first or third person. Those that read in first person were asked to place themselves in the author”s shoes. Even in this scenario people are more likely “to forget their “own” unethical acts but remembered those of other people.” This can be used in a managerial setting by getting accounts from any witnesses or accomplices. Another take-away from this article is the fact the memory of those who behaved unethically is diminished only a few days later. As a manager, I would use this evidence in the way I handled questionable behavior. I would make a point to get my employee to write down their account as soon as I am made aware of the situation. The final takeaway is the fact that once a person has started down the slippery path of unethical behavior, the more likely they are to continue on that path. It reminds me of when my parents warned me of the unending cycle when a person lies. First, it is one lie, until you need another lie to keep the first lie going; and so forth. As a manager, depending on the situation, the unethical employee would have to be dealt with – from training and coaching to termination. Please note that all parts are to be completed as SEPARATE entities.
