Levels at Which Ethical Issues May be AddressedPersonal level Situations faced in our personal lives outside the context of our employment. Organizational level Workplace situations faced by managers and employees. Industry or profession level A manager or organization might experience business ethics issues at the industry or professional level. Societal and global levels Managers acting in concert through their companies and industries can bring about constructive changes. © 2012 South-Western, a part of Cengage Learning
Personal and Managerial EthicsThere are three major approaches to ethical decision making Conventional Approach Discussed in chapter 7. Principles Approach Managers desire to make decisions based on more than is provided by the conventional approach to ethics. A principle of business ethics is an ethical concept, guideline, or rule that assists you in taking the ethical course. Ethical Tests Approach Discussed later in this chapter. © 2012 South-Western, a part of Cengage Learning
Types of Ethical Principles or TheoriesTeleological theories Focus on consequences or results. Deontological theories Focus on duties. Aretaic theories Focus on virtue. © 2012 South-Western, a part of Cengage Learning
Principles Approach to EthicsMajor principles of ethics Utilitarianism Kant’s Categorical Imperative Rights Justice Principles of care Virtue ethics Servant leadership Golden Rule © 2012 South-Western, a part of Cengage Learning
© 2012 South-Western, a part of Cengage LearningUtilitarianism A teleological principle that focuses on acts that produce the greatest good for the greatest number. Strengths Weaknesses Forces thinking about the general welfare of stakeholders Ignores actions that may be inherently wrong Allows personal decisions to fit into situational complexities May conflict with the notion of justice Difficult to formulate satisfactory rules for decision making © 2012 South-Western, a part of Cengage Learning
Kant’s Categorical ImperativeA duty-based, deontological, principle. Formulations: Act only on rules that you would be willing to see everyone follow. Act to treat humanity in every case as an end and never as a means. Every rational being is able to regard oneself as a maker of universal law. We do not need an external authority to determine the nature of the moral law. © 2012 South-Western, a part of Cengage Learning
© 2012 South-Western, a part of Cengage LearningPrinciple of Rights Moral rights Rights that we ought to have based on moral reasoning. Principle of rights Focuses on examining and possibly protecting individual moral or legal rights. A negative right is the right to be left alone. A positive right is the right to something. © 2012 South-Western, a part of Cengage Learning
© 2012 South-Western, a part of Cengage LearningPrinciple of Justice Involves considering what alternative promotes fair treatment of people. Types of justice Distributive Compensatory Procedural Rawlsian © 2012 South-Western, a part of Cengage Learning
© 2012 South-Western, a part of Cengage LearningEthical Due Process Process Fairness Have employees been given input into the decision process? Do employees believe the decisions were made and implemented in an appropriate manner? Do managers provide explanations when asked? Do they treat others respectfully? Do they listen to comments being made? © 2012 South-Western, a part of Cengage Learning
Rawls’s Principles of JusticeEach person has an equal right to the most basic liberties compatible with similar liberties for others. Social and economic inequalities are arranged so that they are both: Reasonably expected to be to everyone’s advantage, and Attached to positions and offices open to all. © 2012 South-Western, a part of Cengage Learning
Ethic of Care and Virtue EthicsEthic of care/Principle of caring Traditional ethics focus too much on the individual self. Views the individual as relational, not individualistic– similar to stakeholder theory. Virtue ethics Focuses on individuals becoming imbued with virtues. Based on Aristotle and Plato. © 2012 South-Western, a part of Cengage Learning

Managers many not consider tougher issues that a more ethics-focused approach might require. © 2012 South-Western, a part of Cengage Learning
