The movie centers around Gekko making Bud Fox his apprentice and teaching him the makings of a powerful investor like himself. From the beginning until the end, Mr. Gekko enjoys his riches from greed which will then be the cause of his downfall. From the deontological ethical perspective, Gordon Gekko’s position is morally wrong because his insatiable greed for wealth, authority, and insight blinds him to the harmful consequences he creates for all those affected by his decisions. Mr. Gekko’s position is morally incorrect based on the deontological ethical theory. The prefix of the word “deontological” is a Greek word called “deon” which means duty.
In today’s employers exploit their staff to have profit in the company. Of course, this is done in most companies and employers pressuring sellers for more sales so as earn more money. Sometimes the sellers going off limits to please their bosses but also to get paid because the seller pays on the basis of their sales. According to The American Heritage Dictionary (2017), the psychopath is: “A personality disorder characterized by deceitfulness, manipulation, grandiosity, lack of empathy or guilt, and often aggressive or violent behavior. It is sometimes considered a subset of antisocial personality disorder."
Furthermore, this paper will establish that although initially Nardelli was very successful, his leadership style which he transferred from GE would be his downfall, as he succeeded to alienate his employees, shareholders and customers. An analysis into what alterations Robert Nardelli should have made to his leadership style in order to perform better as a leader and to improve his influence will be examined. These alterations would have allowed Nardelli to gain the true backing of the employees and shareholders within the company, which would have resulted in him gaining true followers.
This exemplifies that their claim is accurate because their evidence shows that teachers were willing to forfeit the opportunity to successfully teach kids for the financial incentive. Similarly, in Gregory Hamel’s article, “Negatives of Motivating Employees With Financial Rewards,” he explains that, when offered money, employees create an “every man for himself” tone which creates inconsistency within the workplace. Negative effects of an individualized workplace include a lack of communication amongst employees; coworkers will fight over work loads because the more work that is completed, the higher their bonus is. Furthermore, the inconsistency of monetary incentives may cause people to get a large bonus one year, and a small bonus the next: this can lead to a lack in confidence in their performance at work. This supports what the Braufman’s are concluding in their writing because it shows the negative effects monetary influences inflict upon people.
John Friedman’s purposes to write the text are demonstrating Milton Friedman’s failures about social responsibility and correcting the misguided businessmen’s opinions by taking recent conditions into consideration. Milton Friedman is targeting business managers to raise their awareness in their work life. Corporations, stockholders, executives, employees and customers are inseparable parts of business and they are definitely affected by the actions of executives in his opinion. The money of someone is always spent and the businessmen should know that and decide for corporation’s self-interest. John Friedman aims business managers similarly but also he is targeting general people.
Managers face many challenges in managing business; however, being competitive is very important because you will have to make sure that your business is doing better than the other you are competing against. You will have to make sure that the associates have enough cash in the registers to keep the business going because customers can always take their business somewhere else. We sometimes think that when a customer walks out and is not satisfied then everything will be alright but that one customer can really hurt the business because that customer may complain and tell others customers about the bad experience they had and then it will spread. Managers have to be calm when managing a business because sometimes managers can get out of hand
One of many reasons is to protect the company from information leaking to the competitors and if that were to happen, the competitors can easily take away market share/profit from the company; worst case scenario wipe out the company. Another reason is employees were to find out the pay of each employee, it will result in an unhealthy work environment, or employees may choose to quit. Clients exposed to the information can gain bargaining power of dictating how much they’re willing to pay if they’ve been unreasonably charged in the past. Also, if the intent is to keep the confidential information only to the president and not share with vital management, it may stunt growth and remove opportunities/ideas that some management may be able to provide if they could contribute. Therefore, most companies, as mine as well, the confidential information is built with rules of who can be provided with how much information, and where to draw the line when certain questions are asked; many a times I’ve been asked sales numbers of the company by curious salespersons and my response every time is apologetic that I cannot share that information and to seek to their
“A company can falsify its financial statements by overstating its revenue or assets, not recording expenses and under-recording liabilities.” (Nickolas, n.d.) WorldCom purposely overstated its assets to be able to dip into them to increase profits so it would meet profit projections. System fraud is the type of fraud that the management or the perpetrator will take advantage of the weak controls of the company. For example, at WorldCom, the control environment was very weak, and this made it much easier for the perpetrators to defraud the company. WorldCom’s internal environment was a mess waiting to happen. Even without the fraud, the company would have collapsed, yet perhaps sooner than it did.
