STEP 1To what extent should personal religious beliefs impact our decisions about business ethicsPersonal religious beliefs should have an impact on every aspect of your life includingbusiness ethics. If you are truly grounded into your culture, morals, and belief then they mandatehow you live your life whether it be at home or at work. There may be difficult businesssituations in which arise but your instilled beliefs are what you depend on when making the rightdecision. 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 yoursense of business ethics and personal decision-making?I personally feel that my personal beliefs very much impact my business ethics as well asdecision making. For starters it would be hard and probably not an option to accept a job thatgoes against what I believe in. As an example, computer hacking has become a popular yetillegal job for some but it’s the way they make their living. While although it may be rewardingfor some, I feel that computer hacking is morally wrong and an invasion of privacy and mypersonal beliefs would never steer me on the path to become involved with such. My religiousbeliefs have engrained a since of wanting to help into my character and has pushed me to want tobe 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 asupervisor who also possess this or her own individual beliefs. What they believe in may verywell affect the employees and the day to day operations and decision making.“Framework isproposed that describes how the personal spiritual beliefs of a top level leader operate in strategicdecision making like a schema to filter and frame information” [Phi12].
PERSONAL WORLDVIEW & BUSINESS ETHICS2My decision making is also affected by my personal beliefs. From small instances when Ireally don’t feel like going into work and wanting to call out, my morals and beliefs wont let mesimply because it wouldn’t be fair to my coworkers who would have to take on the extra loadwhile I stayed in the bed. I consider myself a team player and will do what I need to to ensure weare working productively to meet a goal.Provers 27:17 saysIron sharpens iron, and one mansharpens another(KJV). At the end of the day we are all working to reach the business missionand working together can not only result in the mission being met, but bring about a productiveand collaborative work environment.
