As some of things that we have experienced

As people we have personal values and beliefs that are a part
of who we are as a humas. Some of these values and beliefs are things that we
have picked up from our parents, grandparents and other individuals that have
an influence our lives. We also gain values from some of things that we have
experienced in life. As we make our way through the workplace, we will come across
situations that could challenge our values and beliefs. When these incidents arise
we need to ensure that the right decisions are being made. Ethics in the
workplace is a responsibility of everyone who is a part of the organization. Dr.
Novak explains various responsibilities a business has in his article “Business
Ethics and the Role of the Corporation”. Novak refers to “the defeat of envy
through upward mobility” (Jennings, 2009) which basically is saying that
promotion within the workplace gives people a reason to continue working hard
because they will be rewarded. Reward is the basic premise for employment in a
capitalistic culture. The first set of definitions included internal business
strategies focused on satisfying primary stakeholders along with the needs of
the organization. Creating shareholder wealth, growth, satisfying customers
with quality products and job creation are mentioned in this first set of
responsibilities. Novak refers to “the defeat of envy through upward mobility”
(Jennings, 2009) which basically is saying that promotion within the workplace
gives people a reason to continue working hard because they will be rewarded.
Reward is the basic premise for employment in a capitalistic culture. the
second set of responsibilities refers to external stakeholder responsibilities
or secondary stakeholders. These include: the community which the business
serves, political views which shape this community laws, respect for these
laws, environmental issues, being responsible for which media the organization
supports and thus promotes via television commercials. Secondary stakeholders
are also important because they can take action that can damage or assist the
organization. Secondary stakeholders include governments (especially through
regulatory agencies), unions, nongovernmental organizations (NGOs), activities,
political action groups, and the media.  According to Novak, Social Justice describes a
unique balance of “laws and moral and cultural institutions”. How well a
company conforms to activities that benefit these cultural institutions while
abiding by the laws of society, and, at the same time, still managing to be
profitable, is the key to a successful business.
