Organizational Ethics 2 Introduction Organizational ethic issues are dramatically different depending on the organization and its environment. Business ethics are designed around the goals and objectives that an organization would like to have in order to meet their overall goals. The business ethics of each organization will change depending on the company. Some organizations will have ethics that include productivity over accuracy, while others are more focused on being the most efficient as they possibly can. These are objectives that each organization will choose and apply to their company. The ethics that are noticeably different in each organization are examples of diverse approaches to reaching company goals or objectives. Diversity is very common in an organizational culture. It is very common to have different types of cultures, ideas, outlooks, and approaches when working in an organization. Diverse situations become more or less important depending on the company and its guidelines. Many organizations have ethic issues that need to be handled before negative outcomes occur. There is a lot of discrimination among the workplace that can cause harm to employees and ultimately cause harm to the employer. Age discrimination is one of the huge ethical issues present in many different companies around the world. Age discrimination takes place in the everyday workplace environment. Many organizations and the companies that they work for tend to want to hire someone that will be able to be with them for awhile; this brings a sense of security to the company. Employers will try and hire the best person for the job. The people that an organization hires are usually the employees that can be as productive as possible. Employers want to get their money’s worth when they hire an employee.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
