In week one, we learned about the Seven Ethical Principles (see table 1-4) from the chapter: Organizational Behavior: The Quest for People-Centered Organizations and Ethical Conduct. Describe four of the seven general ethical principles, and explain how the ethical principles you chose could improve an organizations' ethical climate. Please provide examples to support your statements. Maintaining a strong code of ethical conduct is important in all organizations. Violating ethical standards can lead to mistrust by employees and customers and can ultimately lead to disintegration of a business. Ensuring that leadership upholds an organization’s ethical code helps to ensure that employees will also be more likely to abide by the ethical code as well. Additionally, organizations with a strong ethical code will be more likely to be profitable. Several of the moral principles are described in further detail below. Honesty is highly important in any organization. Management within any organization should ensure that maintaining integrity and telling the truth is one of the top priorities for all employees. When a situation arises, regardless of how good or bad it may be, honesty is generally the best policy. If a mistake is made, lying and covering it up will only lead to further distrust by consumers or staff when the truth eventually surfaces. Additionally, when employees feel comfortable in being honest without fear of retaliation, potential problems can be more easily identified and corrected.

    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.
