1 ENG 070 04 May 2017 Can Business and Ethics Coexist? According to Valdemar Setzer, “Ethics is not definable, is not implementable, because it is not conscious; it involves not only our thinking, but also our feeling.” Ethics are the values that govern morals and behaviors to know what is right and wrong, good or bad, fair and unfair. Ethics are also the religious beliefs, and what the law requires people to do. On the other hand, a business is an organization or enterprising entity engaged in commercial, industrial, or professional activities. Companies conduct business activities through the production of a good, offering of a service, or retailing manufactured products. A business can be a for-profit entity, or a non-profit organization that operates to fulfill a charitable mission. All these services, missions, and activities require honesty, energy, and intelligence. That means associating work and ethics. In a company, business growth and success occurs when ethics are followed efficiently and effectively. Both business and ethics can work together because they prove a company’s integrity, responsibility, and reputation. The first reason to show that business and ethics can work together is integrity. For most companies, integrity is critical for getting and keeping customers and vendors. But in a practical sense, integrity includes something like being honest and morally upright. In business, the only view that counts are that of the customer. For example, it may not be easy to see when one person is being blinded by money in closing a deal, but it’s easy for everyone else to see it. One secret to keeping integrity in a business as an entrepreneur is to treat everyone with respect.

    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.
