It about leading the follower in right direction by using right tool. Leader shall respect other people’s value, their decision, allow others to be themselves with creative wants and desires. Serves other: it’s about helping other and showing right direction. Ethical leader always link the personal goal with the organizational goal. They clarify the vision, mission and communicate coordinate to get result.
This also evident from above discussion that ethical leadership is also crucial in developing the ethical culture within an organization. The employee performance can also incredibly increased by ethical and moral behavior in a workplace that practice good ethics. Finally, the overall performance of an organization in term of its financial outcomes is also benefited from the ethic practice. The case study of L’Oreal also provides a good example of all
Conversely, poor management could have a negative effect on the employees' productivity. According to a study, in 2005 more than half of employees concerned (58 percent) point out that poor management has a negative impact on their productivity (cited in Nahavandi, R. Denhardt, J. Denhardt and Aristigueta 2015). A survey of the Gallup organisations shows that positive leadership behaviours are important in employee engagement. Employees are more engaged when managers provide rewards, encouragement and stay positive even when they deal with difficulties (cited in Nahavandi, R. Denhardt J. Denhardt and Aristigueta 2015). Finally, employers should value organisational behaviour because it could help them, for example, to reduce the number of employee turnover.
In the code of ethics, it states, “Social workers should treat colleagues with respect and should represent accurately and fairly the qualifications, views, and obligations of colleagues” (2.01 p.18). In doing so, this will give social worker’s the opportunity to have trust and respect for each other and will be able to go to them for advice. For example, if there is a case where a social worker does not know how to handle it, that person can go to their colleague and ask for advice simply because they trust each other and have respect for one another. Respect is an imperative quality that people must attain to acquire the quality of the dignity and worth of the human
I would argue that Wal-Mart’s employment practices are immoral based on different philosophies which are utilitarianism and justice. Utilitarianism seeks the greatest good for the greatest number of people. The “good” here can be referring to “happiness” (Fraedrich, 2013). Based on utilitarianism, Wal-Mart’s ethical standard is immoral as the consequences failed to benefit the employees. Although by underpaying the employees, the stakeholders would gain more profits, however it has resulted in significant unhappiness among the majority of the employees.
They are external and internal. In internal whistleblowing, a person that is whistleblower notifies or reports about the unethical or corrupt practices of a person or a group to his/her supervisor or department head or the Board. While in external whistle blowing, a person reports the wrongdoing to external organizations, institutions, Media and regulators. Often, employee is in dilemma whether to report the suspicious activities internally in the organization or to external bodies. In most of the cases, internal whistleblowing is better than external whistle blowing as this gives a company to rectify itself and monitor better while external whistleblowing hampers the organization’s reputation and the loyalty of the employer is questioned and the employee’s environment might become unfriendly in the organization.
Ethical behaviour is a common practice that related to moral behaviour of one’s personal value and social norms. Different people have different perception on ethical behaviours and sometimes one’s ethical value changes due to social pressure. Ethical means something that align with one’s believes or an organisation’s social norms. But in workplace ethnic, it depends on how the behaviour affect the productivity or an organisation or teamwork among employees. Thus, the million-dollar question is what are the important characters for an employee to have ethical behaviour in workspace.
Labor turnover and absenteeism increments are another disadvantage in a diverse workplace (Nadeem Iqbal et al., 2014). Workforce diversity increases labor absenteeism and turnover in the organizations for employee productivity and satisfaction. Employees who recognize themselves as valued associates of their organization are harder working, involved and inventive (Eugene Saltson et al., 2015). Unfortunately, minority-group associates often feel less valued than do majority-group members due to ethnocentrism, typecasting and prejudice (Badreya al-Jenaibi, 2011).The Mismanagement of diversity in the form of denied access or negative treatment can have undesirable significances, such as motivation and inhibiting
2.6 Theoretical and Empirical of the study According to literature, Ethics are the moral principles that guides an individual’s behavior in deciding on actions that are “right or wrong”. (Oraka et al. 2015). Ethics shapes the life of an individual in taking actions that are deemed to be right or wrong and also appropriate and acceptable to society. The actions that one takes are supposed to benefit society or stakeholders either positively or negatively.
Based on the study of Tian, Zhang, & Zou (2014), employees who experience job insecurity tend to turn to deviant work behaviors when they are experiencing high levels of stress. Therefore, this present paper aims to add to the literature by investigating the effects of job insecurity on deviant workplace behavior and how perceived organizational support (POS) will prevent or at least buffer the negative correlates associated with job
