Week 4

Task 5: Scenario based case studies on ethical values and cultural diversity. (10 marks)

Situation 1: You work for ABC company and you are invited by a private sector company XXX (who is also your supplier) to join in a corporate "box" at a local National Soccer League arena for a game in the Stanley Cup playoffs. You reflect that the cost of these boxes may average to about $1000 or more per person in the regular season, but often exceed $5,000 in the playoffs because of the food and drinks attached with the tickets. In previous months you watched that some of your co-workers attend those events and dinners. You are now in dilemma whether to accept that gift or not as your organisation is yet to have a policy on accepting gifts. 

Key Issue: Personal values and ethical decision making. Understanding the extent of gifts, donations and bribes.

Question: Use your personal opinion to describe what should you doas an employee. 

Question: If you were the manager of those employees, how would you ensure that you are implementing ethical values in your organisation?

Situation 2: The annual BBQ of your organisation is a big event for networking and getting to have face-to-face time with one another. Everyone in the team was sure to invite the newest employee, stressing how important and fun the traditional company event was. The new employee is Hindu. She arrives and when it's time to eat inquires about a vegetarian option? A co-worker responds, "Come on! This is a BBQ, hot dogs and hamburgers! That's a real BBQ!" She smiles, nods, and stays at the picnic. But you notice she doesn't eat anything. 

Key Issue: Dietary considerations employees based on religion, cultural, health requirements or personal preferences.

Question: You have identified that there is an issue. What is that issue?

Question: As an operational manager of the organisation, what would you do to ensure that you are implementing cultural diversity in your organisation?
