Name: Vikas SinghCourse: EMBAUser: EMBA05-081HOW (UN)ETHICAL ARE YOU?Whatever work we do is bound to be classified as Ethical or Unethical behaviour/Decisions.In short Ethical behaviour is the doing the thing in a right way by following set of rules,principles and Moral and the vice versa/Reverse is unethical Behaviour/Decision.The below image clearly shows a person torn between whether a decision taken is Ethical ornot. As his decision/behaviour might be ethical for one group of people, but unethical forother.SUMMARYWe as individual’s have this habit of living in this perception that whatever decisions wemake are correct and in the interests of the organization along with being ethical.We are soself obsessed that we ignore the flaw in our decisions, which might lead to conflict of interestin the future. As David Armor deduced that we are free from the verybiases that we arequick to recognize in others: Illusion of Objectivity.As a start we must let go of the notion that we have that we are great at making good and fairdecisions for everyone.Implicit Prejudice:We judge people based on their looks, work they do, their behaviour and these judgementsare based on our thoughts which we have accumulated through life, i.e we would associateany labourers working in the constructions site to be either from UP/Bihar, which might notbe true or only people who are not good at studies take up commerce and Art and the scholarsopt for Science Courses.TheseImplicit Prejudices arises from our own unconscious Level and stereotypes. Howeverit does not mean that these thinking which we have is incorrect, it might be correct. It justshows that how we categorize the information which keeps flowing to us.This can also lead to loss for an organization, a study showed that when people sent theirresumes for a job, black applicants were half as likely to be called for interview whencompared to their white job seekers with equal qualifications.
In-Group Favouritism: Bias that Favors your Group:We always try to favour my friends, Family, well wishers and so on, whether that be anintroduction for an job, admission or anyother favour within our powers such as promotingsomeone. We do favors generally for people whom we know, like or love, the reason mightbe belonging to same nationality, social class, religion or race.For example, the people in the power allocate the resources such as jobs, promotions topeople effectively just like them or people they like they and are discriminating the others. Anexample can be an hiring officer in a company selecting a candidate who happens to be hisrelative over a well qualified candidate.
