The new age of ethics in the workplace

Many would agree that ethics in the workplace wasn’t taken seriously until the whole Enron and Worldcom fiasco. Now university and college professors hold classes and seminars that stress the importance of ethics in the workplace. Even up until now, employees and managers have a hard time defining their social responsibility and what it means to do the right thing. Yet it always comes down to the age-old question that everyone asks: Who can say exactly what is right and what is wrong? With the age of globalization and the concept of global business, many executives and employees have a hard times being ethical due to their cultural differences with other foreign companies.

In the end, it comes down to the individual’s responsibility as an employee and their honesty, commitment, and loyalty. As long as we still have humans running the workplace, the issue of ethics will always remain a factor.
