Assignment 1: Do you believe that employees are more attracted and committed to ethical
organizations? Are you? Why or why not?
Assignment 2:
Select/Choose and respond to 2 of the following 3 discussion questions:
1-Does your organization (or former organization) address ethical issues in a formal, systematic
way? If so, is it a cookie cutter, one-size-fits-all approach, or has the organization customized an
ethical culture to match its unique needs? (If you have not worked in an organization, select an
organization to research and use it for your example in your response).
2- Imagine that it’s your responsibility to select an ethics officer for your organization (or other
organization from your research). What qualities, background, and experience would you look
for? Why? What approach do you think the ethics officer should use to encourage ethical
behavior and why?
3-You joined one of the country’s largest retail chains, and already you’ve been promoted to
department manager in one of your employer’s largest stores in an upscale shopping mall.
Imagine your surprise when you log on to Facebook and see that one of your ‘‘friends’’—a
young woman who heads one of the other departments in your store—has posted confidential
store sales on her wall and has also posted sexual comments about a young man who reports to
her. What should you do about this issue? Why?
Assignment 3:
Please address one of the following two questions:
Steven F Goldstone, Chairman and CEO of RJR Nabisco (one of the largest US cigarette
manufacturers) said in a 1998 magazine interview, “I have no moral view of this business…I few
it as a legal business. You shouldn’t be drawing a moral judgment about a business our country
says is perfectly legal and is taxed like crazy by it.” Think about his comment in terms of ethical
awareness. What might change if you think of your business in terms of ethics and not just legal
terms? What about the class action lawsuits that were settled for billions and set aside for future
claims even while cigarettes are still sold avidly? What about applying these principles to the
legalization and sale of marijuana in several US States?
Should a person be permitted to place a value on human life? Should a company? Should the
government? If not, how are decisions to be made to compensate individuals for family
members lost?
