  1. Top 10 Principles for Positive Business Ethics By Philip E. Humbert
    This morning, I read about a company using on-line auctions to defraud customers. Last week, I consulted on an ethics complaint where a business coach betrayed a client’s confidentiality. And, recently a Physician was convicted of insider trading based on information from a patient, a violation of both business ethics and her professional ethics.Business ethics are the key to profits. If clients and customers don’t trust you, and your business ethics, they will not do business with you. Would …


  2. Enron’s Ultimate Victim: Ethics By Paul Shearstone
    FROM the 'MORAL HIGH GROUND', where we imagine ourselves, the Enron fiasco should have come as no surprise. Enron is simply a quintessential example of the degradation of principles such as trust, loyalty and ethical standards.Why it happened,however,is what really needs to be understood if business is to restore its ethical foundation and survive tumultuous times.Few will argue that business today is more challenging and competitive; most everyone accepts that the marketplace is more cutthro…


  3. Respecting Employee Privacy Rights in the Workplace When Using Video Surveillance By Alice Osborn
    The loss of employee privacy rights in the workplace is a growing concern among employees, attorneys, and civil libertarian groups. Although employers in banks, telecommunications, securities exchange, in hi-tech industries, and in other workplaces justify using video surveillance in the workplace to monitor employee behavior to chiefly promote safety, improve productivity, and stop theft, protecting employee privacy must be a top concern. For if the courts find that the employer’s surveilla…


  4. Are You as Unhappy as T.O.? By Mike Shannon
    Anyone that has been with me during the fall season at anytime in the past 40 years knows that I am a huge Philadelphia Eagles fan. Sundays start early on TV with the Donovan McNabb show, the Andy Reid show, ESPN pre-game, network pregame, the game itself and then postgame live on Comcast for a few hours. Like…don't call me on Sunday when the Eagles are playing. One of my biggest thrills as a kid was suiting up with the Springfield Boys Club and sitting in the endzone at old Franklin Field as …

  6. India's Power Troubles And Enron By Patrick Flaherty
    With severe power shortage problems predicted for the turn of the century, India was faced with finding a solution to this problem either domestically or through foreign investment in the early 90’s. India’s financial standing in the world markets was extremely low and had never been an attractive country for foreign investment. Enron Development Corporation, a part of American Enron, believed they could solve India’s power problem through the construction of the gas-fired power station, the…


  7. No Credit is Due: Bad Telemarketing By Greg Gagliardi
    Just a few minutes ago I was debating what to write about this week -- something interesting, perhaps, or maybe it was about time to give some credit to snails, I thought. Then, by some random stroke of luck, fate or writer's lightning (a term I created just now), I received a phone call from a credit card company..."We are all ready to complete your application," the woman told me. "We just need to ask you a couple more questions."In theory this makes a lot of sense. I mean, hey -- when som…

Charitable contributions enable us to support these values.2. It's tradition. Local businesses traditionally have been principal …


  9. Delivering The Goods: Keeping Your Word In a World Which Often Doesn't By Eric P. Barnes
    Perhaps I'm just getting crochety. Then again, maybe not.First, I'm hardly old enough to be in the "crochety" class. And secondly, I've been feeling this way for about 30 years.My complaint? Delivering the goods. Or the lack thereof.Growing up, one of the things stressed in my family had to do with keeping your word. When you said you would do something, promised to make good on something, you did it. Or made every good effort to do so. Mostly, you delivered the goods. You showed u…


  10. Ryan's Grill, Buffet, and Bakery Fires Manager over a Lingerie Catalog By James Newton
    I know, it's the 21st century and yet a lingerie catalog was considered reason to fire a manager of a restaurant. It's true, a manager that was just about to be promoted, did not have any other discrepancy reported, was known as a good performer, and yet a lingerie catalog cost him his job. Not only that, Ryan's also denied him the ability to collect his unemployment check. Here is how it happened; The company auditors came in to review the books and procedures of an Augusta Georgia store. Wh…


  11. The Collapse of Enron: Managerial Aspects By Anastasia Kurdina
    Executive summaryIts revenues made up US $139($184) billion, assets equaled $62($82) billion, and the number of employees reached more than 30,000 people in 20 countries around the world.While Enron Corporation was so highly praised by the outside observers, internally it had highly decentralized financial control and decision-making structure, which made it practically impossible to get coherent and clear view on corporations' activities and operations. Of course, the problem was not exclusiv…

  14. Business Ethics: Functional Choices By Jan Verhoeff
    Years of experience have taught me there is no such thing as “Business Ethics”. If a person isn’t ethical in the rest of their lives, their business ethics aren’t worth the shoe leather they’ve worn out either.I stood beside a State Representative at college graduation recently, and heard him tell a gentleman shaking his hand that he had the utmost respect for the President of the college, because he knew who her friends were and they all had good solid “Business Ethics”. I raised an eyebrow a…

The most typical being the don’t kiss and tell type statements, often uttered by responsibly private individuals about their love life.Then there are the polar opposite, blabbermouth, tell all people (you know who you are) that just can’t keep their preverbal trap shut.Many may believe that there are specific gender biases towards kissing and telling, yet this remains unproven scientifically.…

You cannot know in advance what roadblocks or brick walls city planners, coun…


  17. The Armaments Industry and Holy (?) Roman Emperors By Robert Baird
    "The time for fixing every essential right on a legal basis is while our rulers are honest and ourselves united. From the conclusion of this war we shall be going down hill. It will not then be necessary to resort every movement to the people for support. They will be forgotten, therefore, and their rights disregarded. They will forget themselves, but in the sole faculty of making money... The shackles, therefore, which shall not be knocked off at the conclusion of this war, will remain on us …


  18. The Three Schools of Business Ethics By Michael Neill
    G. Richard Shell, author of Bargaining for Advantage: Negotiation Strategies for Reasonable People, identifies three primary schools of ethics in negotiation. To me, they are equally valuable in examining ethics in the context of business in general.1. The Poker School - "It's a Game"To poker players, business is a game and anything that can be done to gain advantage within the rules of the game (generally speaking, the laws of the land), is fair and just. If you love negotiating "gambits" (lo…

  20. Do Organizations Serve Us Or Do We Serve Organizations By Nick Arrizza, M.D.
    We have seen an erosion in the confidence that society has in organizational leadership and its integrity recently with the numerous accounting scandals that have become public.Clearly this has led to the demise of several large organizations.

  21. What is a Ponzi Scheme? By Mike Jolley
    This is for those who don't believe me when I talk about the dangers of "mystery money" schemes.The terms "pyramid scheme" and "Ponzi scheme" are used almost interchangeably. However, the scheme for which Charles Ponzi is most remembered was not a pyramid.If you aren't aware of the story of Ponzi, you'll likely find it familiar. This man promised to double your money in 90 days, and he kept his promise -- until the day he was arrested for fraud. He had created such a personal mystique that h…


  22. Minding Your Global Manners By Lydia Ramsey
    To say that today's business environment is becoming increasingly more global is to state the obvious. Meetings, phone calls and conferences are held all over the world and attendees can come from any point on the globe. On any given business day you can find yourself dealing face-to-face, over the phone, by e-mail and, on rare occasions, by postal letter with people whose customs and cultures differ your own. You may never have to leave home to interact on an international level.While the …


  23. Ethical Conflict Resolution By Doug Staneart
    Conflicts are inevitable, but the more we know about human nature, the more positive the outcome of a conflict might be for both parties. We know that different people have different priorities and different ways of dealing with situations that may occur, but in general, human beings have certain characteristics that are very similar – even across gender, racial, and socio-economic lines.· People love to be agreed with. · People hate to be disagreed with. · People like other people who agree …


  24. Is It Just Me, or are People Getting Ruder? By Mary Eule
    I’ve been wondering this for a while and have been dying to ask my business colleagues and friends. But whenever I’m get ready to pop the question, I manage to convince myself that it’s silly, reveals my cynical nature (or advance years!) and is probably just a figment of my jaded imagination… certainly not worthy of intelligent discussion.The question, however, continued to reside nervously on the tip of my tongue, eager to fly out (particularly just after leaving my apparently mute colleague…


  25. Companies Collect Data! By Emre Kizilkaya
    Globalization and technology developed at a rattling rate make our lives more comfortable but we are stranded in a tighter area in our daily lives, on the contrary. Future might be ahead that is worse than Georger Orwell’s “Big Brother”. This time private companies trace us more than the government does, ranging from GSM operators to web search engines, credit card data and survey forms.In the era of marketing, advertising and consumpiton, it does not matter so much to get data collected about…
