Business Ethics in the Fire Service Research Paper

… Business Ethics in the Fire Service

The fire service in most countries is held in high esteem and widely regarded as a paragon of ethical business practices. Because the fire service is funded with scarce taxpayer resources, though, it is vitally important that the lofty perceptions of ethical practices in the fire service are supported by consistent applications of ethical principles in their day-to-day operations. Although every public service organization is unique in some fashion, fire service managers and firefighters alike encounter a number of ethical dilemmas in the course of their work that require an informed, professional response. To gain some fresh insights regarding these issues, this paper provides a review of the relevant peer-reviewed and scholarly literature concerning business ethics in the fire…. [read more]


Business Ethics Focus on Merrill Essay

… Ford's senior management calculated the cost per life lost on the basis of the National Traffic Safety Administration's data and stated that recall for correcting the problem with the Pinto would cost $121 million as compared to only $50 million for injuries and deaths caused by the problem.

The decision-making process in this case was flawed in that the Ford Motor Company attempted to place value on the life of a human being. How could it possibly be that lives lost totaled less than the cost of a recall and modification to the company's vehicles? This happened because of the failure of the Ford Motor Company and its employee to assign intrinsic value to the life of human beings which would mean that the company…. [read more]

Ethics in the Workplace Organizational Essay

… However, they would also be at risk of getting laid off unless they bring in some business to the hotel.

The management of the hotel could face a cut in its salaries if the request is rejected and business continues to suffer. If the request is accepted, they would benefit from the increased revenue and raised profile of the hotel. However, it could lead to grievance issues and complaints of discrimination against black employees. Negative media publicity would also result in public humiliation and probably litigation and termination.

The guests would experience comfort as a result of compliance with their wishes. It would also give them the leverage to gain acceptance of further requests during their stay. They would also suffer from the service quality…. [read more]


Home Depot and Business Ethics Essay

… One of the main problems with Nardelli was his bluntness, because it turned off not only employees and investors, but also the public. Once the public decides it does not like a leader and his company, that is a serious problem. A company in that position that wants to survive needs a new leader, and that is precisely what The Home Depot got -- but not until 2007. Among the most-criticized decisions made by Nardelli during his time as CEO was to fire many of the knowledgeable, full-time people and hire a lot of people who were part-time and did not really understand the departments in which they were working (Grow, 2008).

That hurt the value of the company in the eyes of investors and…. [read more]


Environmental Issues, Business Ethics Research Paper

… In addition, Lebanon lacks analogous regulatory elements that uphold ethics programs. Companies in the region focus on their initiatives that contribute towards the long-term sustainability of the company.

Corporate integrity and ethics can also fall on this focus, but they hardly focused on it. The type of business here aims in moneymaking. The initiatives include good governance within the company and corporate responsibility including some ethic programs. Their main aim is to improve the country's operations, and ignoring the ethical needs. The companies forget about the workforce as being a powerful asset (Herde, 2005).

… Business Scenario

[Type the document title]

The internet has impacted nearly every form of daily life. This includes everything from the way that people interact with each other socially (through social networking), to how they purchase various goods and services. As a result, a shift has occurred in the way that consumers are utilizing this new technology to perform a variety of tasks. Evidence of this shift can be seen, by looking no further than the increasing number of wireless devices that are being used by consumers on a regular basis.

Management and Ethics

In this paper, the author investigates the ethics of business management. After reviewing the literature to determine the concerns mentioned by business ethicists, the author compares those concerns with the concerns of a small business man, as revealed in a case study. The first part of the case study involves a covert participant observation of the ethical practices of a privately-run small business. The second part of the case study consisted of an interview with the small business owner, to determine whether or not he perceived ethical conflicts in the course of his business, and the nature of any ethical conflicts that he perceived. Finally, the author compared the ethical concerns described by the business scholars and commentators to…. [read more]


Business Ethics Pattern of Ethical Essay

… And so forth; these are all options. The devil is of course in the details, the practical application and implementation details. How one manager defines gender-neutral pay or a fair competitive wage will differ from another's, particularly if they feel that there is a potential conflict with their own compensation objectives. For example, any manager who is told he or she will get a bonus for cutting costs is not going to be very receptive to the notion of giving their minority employees pay raises or increased work schedules just to achieve parity with other employees.

This is a guideline and template. Please do not use as a final turn-in paper.

In today's world, anyone in business who doesn't live in a cave knows that "business" and "ethics" just don't seem like two terms that go together. It just does not seem as if you can read the Wall Street Journal -- or the Peoria Journal Star for that matter -- and not see a story of three about some violation of business morality and ethics. Sad but true, it is a statement of our times and of greed gone amuck.

Perhaps that makes it even more appropriate that we discuss that subject in some moderate depth to discover what it is supposed to be, what it used to…. [read more]


Personal and Organizational Ethics Case Study

… However, they were not as well-financed as the Red Cross. Because of that, the British agencies needed to charge their military members for the same things U.S. military members were getting for free from the Red Cross. Since the British were hosting thousands of American troops and they might be embarrassed by the differences in their funding statuses, The Secretary of War at that time requested that the Red Cross start charging service members for things like donuts and coffee (Bennett, 2005). The organization complied because it believed the request was a wartime demand. The items were sold at cost or below it, and no profit was actually made by the organization based on those sales. That was also the last time any military personnel…. [read more]

In order to be successful in the business world one must have a broad range of up-to-date business skills.

According to our instructions, the mandate we must follow is to increase the company presence in Kava. The primary objective is to benefit this company in a manner that also confers some meaningful benefit to the people of Kava. The government and various other entities in Kava also apparently hope to benefit by virtue of our establishing what they have referred to as our "business culture" in Kava.

Setting the basis for the new Federal Express office in Kava is a more challenging task than initially assumed. For once, there is a growing need for a more organized and well structured logistics system -- this element is pivotal in any economic entity, but even more so with PacEx (Pacific Express), since delivering packages and general logistics represents the main focus of its business operations. Then, another issue is given by the necessity to train people, which is sadly expected to generate some shortages. The desire to train the indigenous population and introduce it to the concepts of organizational culture, as forwarded in the western parts of the globe, represents, in its essence, a…. [read more]


Business Ethics Whether or Not Some Countries Research Proposal

… Business Ethics

Whether or not some countries have more corrupt business practices is a delicate question. Corruption is in the eye of the beholder.

To Western eyes, some countries are more corrupt than ours. This can derive from a number of reasons. One is the culture, which in many countries accepts certain behaviors we would define as corrupt. Another is that corruption has evolved as a means to overcome shortcomings in the economic system. For example, some officials demand bribes because their governments do not pay them enough to live on -the bribes may appear corrupt but are essential within the context of that country's economic system to maintain qualified individuals in positions despite a bankrupt government.

Economics and culture are two of the main…. [read more]

Business Ethics Term Paper

… But her actions, and her corrupt sense of "duty" make her drive to create happiness an illusion, a risky business indeed. As to the deontological considerations, Maria had a right to speak her mind (through her promises), but she failed in her correlative duty to see the big picture; her action in falsifying her company was "permissible" only because no one knew, but she did not have a moral right to do what she did.

Ethics and Morality Case Analysis Morality Pertains Term Paper

… Ethics and Morality Case Analysis

Morality pertains to moral conduct or standards, which in turn, determine the rightness or wrongness of one's conduct (Perle 2004). Ethics is the study of standards of conduct. It is also called moral philosophy. Ethics and morality are often used interchangeably because of their connectedness. It is generally believed that morality is ethics in action. Ethics has been categorized into descriptive, normative, analytical and applied (Fieser 2006). Descriptive ethics describes human behavior. Normative ethics establishes norms on human conduct. Analytical ethics or metaethics investigates how people determine norms of their own behavior. And applied ethics examines specific controversial issues, using analytical and normative ethics as conceptual tools.(Perle, Feiser).

Ethics establishes norms and evaluates when a moral act is right or…. [read more]


Ethics and Information Technology Essay

… There is not equal access to even basic technologies such as a stable Internet connection. Should Internet and technology access be a basic human right such as water, literacy, shelter, and freedom? Property is further an issue. Mason contends:

One of the most complex issues we face as a society is the question of intellectual property rights. There are substantial economic and ethical concerns surrounding these rights; concerns revolving around the special attributes of information itself and the means by which it is transmitted. Any individual item of information can be extremely costly to produce in the first instance. Yet, once it is produced, that information has the illusive quality of being easy to reproduce and to share with others. Moreover, this replication can take…. [read more]

El Dorado Hills Fire Department Essay

… El Dorado Hills Fire Department

The issue regarding ethics is a subject of great importance in the business environment, but also within governmental institutions. Given the fact that ethics is a somewhat abstract notion, it is quite difficult for organizations to establish a code of ethics intended to address all issues that interfere with the organization's activity, to control the manner in which the code of ethics is respected, and to establish what measures should be taken in order to counteract such actions.

The same situation applies to El Dorado Hills Fire Department. The activity of the department and the fact that their actions affect the entire community determines the need of thorough enforcement of ethics in this case. The department is an example regarding…. [read more]

… The only way to ensure that the rules are followed is to provide some form of independent accountability.

The government needs to ensure that the rules are enforced and that accounting firms do not find ways to break the rules. In addition the government must protect investors from corporate vultures who seek to devour every dime that investors provide. The government must also take aggressive action because the unethical behavior of businesses and accountants affect consumer and investor confidence which ultimately affects the health of the economy.

Code of Ethics in the Department of Justice Term Paper

… Code of Ethics as Applicable to the Department of Justice

The topic of ethics from the aspect of a professional and scientific viewpoint has emerged as a topic of significant concern in recent years, both for the Department of Justice and for other organizations as well. Ethics is generally a term used to describe a set of values that describe what is right or wrong, good or bad. As a result, guidelines and discussions surrounding ethics should be applicable to a broad range of cases, as conflicts are likely to arise between ethical principles. Any system of ethical principles is derived from philosophical reasoning, and research in this area indicates that if we have a system of a few principles that apply in all cases…. [read more]

She should remember that this is her first job since college and if she were fired now, this may have a rather unpleasant aspect on her career in the future, because it will look as if she was fired by incompetence and not by ethical principles.

The Enron scandal has probably been the most prominent of its kind in the history of wide scale business fraud. Enron's history before its downfall was impressive: in 15 years, it grew from a practically non-existent entity to the seventh largest company in the United States. By this time, it employed 21,000 staff and had a presence in more than 40 countries. There was a good reason for this appearance of prosperity: Enron was deceiving the world.

The company compiled its financial statements in such a way that huge debts were concealed, thus inflating the company's true value. In order to help them achieve this, the accounting company, Arthur Anderson, shredded documents that indicated the true state of…. [read more]

… Corporate Ethics / Responsibility

Over the last several years, the issue of corporate ethics and responsibility has been increasingly brought to the forefront. Part of the reason for this is from: a host of different disasters and events that would have a major impact upon public policy. At which point, a backlash occurred against the corporation in question and their overall practices. Where, the company was trying to make it appear as if they were acting an ethical manner. Yet, beneath the surface, executives and employees were lacking these attributes, leading to an inevitable crisis. A good example of this can be seen with the Exxon Valdez oil spill. What happened was the company would knowingly overlook the supervision of the captain and crew on…. [read more]
