Using your own organization or one with which you are familiar, take the Corporate Culture Ethics Audit on p. 188.
1) Briefly describe the organization and report the score (the number of “yes” answers).
2) Choose one of the questions which received a “no” answer, and describe why that question is important.
3) Discuss the changes you would recommend over the course of one year to ensure that question would receive a “yes” answer in the future. The post should be a minimum of 250 words and your recommendation(s) should be supported with evidence from a minimum of two sources, including the book.
I recommend not choosing the question about happiness, job satisfaction, and turnover. Why? First, the question is really asking about three separate variables. Second, those variables can be affected by a number of factors that are not related to ethics.
Whatever audit question you choose, the recommendations should address the ethical aspects of that question. For example, employee turnover and job satisfaction might be influenced by low wages. Increasing compensation might reduce turnover and increase satisfaction, but that solution is more directly related to the management and organizational behavior courses. For this discussion, it is more important to address the factors that influence the relationship between ethics and turnover and/or the relationship between ethics and satisfaction.
4) Reply to the posts of two classmates, indicating where you could improve the effectiveness of their proposed changes. It is not necessary to disagree, but it is important build on their proposals and identify areas for improvement. Make connections to the text or other sources as needed to provide evidence for your suggestions. Be specific.
