STEP 1 To what extent should personal religious beliefs impact our decisions about business ethics Personal religious beliefs should have an impact on every aspect of your life including business ethics. If you are truly grounded into your culture, morals, and belief then they mandate how you live your life whether it be at home or at work. There may be difficult business situations in which arise but your instilled beliefs are what you depend on when making the right decision. Personal beliefs should never have to be compromised in a business setting. To what extent do your personal religious (or non-religious) beliefs about life impact your sense of business ethics and personal decision-making? I personally feel that my personal beliefs very much impact my business ethics as well as decision making. For starters it would be hard and probably not an option to accept a job that goes against what I believe in. As an example, computer hacking has become a popular yet illegal job for some but it’s the way they make their living. While although it may be rewarding for some, I feel that computer hacking is morally wrong and an invasion of privacy and my personal beliefs would never steer me on the path to become involved with such. My religious beliefs have engrained a since of wanting to help into my character and has pushed me to want to be involved in projects where I can give back or help other people for the greater good. In a different aspect of beliefs and decision making you may use the example of a supervisor who also possess this or her own individual beliefs. What they believe in may very well affect the employees and the day to day operations and decision making. “Framework is proposed that describes how the personal spiritual beliefs of a top level leader operate in strategic decision making like a schema to filter and frame information” [Phi12].
PERSONAL WORLDVIEW & BUSINESS ETHICS 2 My decision making is also affected by my personal beliefs. From small instances when I really don’t feel like going into work and wanting to call out, my morals and beliefs wont let me simply because it wouldn’t be fair to my coworkers who would have to take on the extra load while I stayed in the bed. I consider myself a team player and will do what I need to to ensure we are working productively to meet a goal. Provers 27:17 says Iron sharpens iron, and one man sharpens another (KJV). At the end of the day we are all working to reach the business mission and working together can not only result in the mission being met, but bring about a productive and collaborative work environment.
