Uncut Special presentation

From time to time, Frost Illustrated exercises its commitment to present voices straight from the community. Oftentimes, those voices insist on getting across a totally uncensored message to preserve their cadence and context. In an effort to honor such voices, we offer the following Uncut Special Presentation unedited and written exactly as the presenter intended.

Many businesses and employees of those businesses lack Business Ethics

Did you know that the ability to recognize and deal with complex business ethics issues has become a significant priority in twentyfirst-century companies? The field of business ethics deals with questions about whether specific business practices are acceptable. For example, should a salesperson omit facts about a product's poor safety record in a sales presentation to a client? New legislation and regulations designed to encourage higher ethical standards in business have been put in place.

Studying business ethics is valuable for several reasons. Business ethics is not merely an extension of an individual's own personal ethics. One may believe that a company/employer may hire good people with strong ethical values, but this is not always the case. The twenty-first-century brought about a new focus on business ethics. Companies must develop corporate values, enforce its own code of ethics, and strive to prevent misconduct. Arthur Anderson, a 'Big Five' accounting firm, was convicted of obstructing justice after shredding documents related to its role as Enron's auditor (Ferrell, Fraedrick, Ferrell, Business Ethics pg. 5, 10).

I write this to say that I am in the early process of starting my own business. And In my business, my house there will be no personal agenda from any one that I hire. Businesses are not keeping a good eye on their employees and are allowing them to mistreat customers for their own personal gain. Businesses are employing employees who can't separate personal from business. Behavior of such is unethical conduct, to withhold what a customer or client is rightly due because an employee don't like them, or don't like something that they have said is so unethical and justification for a law suit. In my business it will be as Al Green sings "love and happiness", are you will not work for me!!!

The ultimate measure of a man is not where he stands in moments of comfort and convenience, but where he stands at times of challenge and controversy. (Martin Luther King, Jr.)

Remember, in spite of what you see, walk by Faith that GOD is good all the time and all the time GOD is good. Keep your head up and may GOD continue to BLESS you?
