Organizational Ethics and Social Responsibility


The principles through which people live by create the world they live, and when these principles change the world around them also change. Without strong ethics ??people are flirting with disaster, with strong ethics companies can face the international markets. Ethics can be define as it is a set of principles and values ??that makes human and worthy of living among men. The principles are based as moral paradigms to be applied by a corresponding need for public discussion and clarification, these are known independently and in advance before implementation. Ethics ??are abstract ideas governed by thought and action to support culture, vision and mission of a person. In this paper the ethics of a company would be discussed and the social responsibility company bears in relation to ethics. In an organization, would become rooted belief in the business and its people to guide organizational strategy. Business ethics is set to fade conflicts in the organization through moral reflection to help the stroke of the discussions and exercises with appropriate arrangements to conduct justified (Nelson, 2005).

Reason to Study Organizational Ethics and Their Importance

Hunt and Osborn (2006) provided many reasons to consider the need for organizational ethics as an area of ??specific study of applied ethics. One of the most remarkable is that corporate ethics should be made public, cannot be as usually happens in individual moral beliefs in the "internal forum." Faced with their responsibilities, organizations cannot accommodate "feelings" moral (guilt, shame, pride, sense of duty) is what happens to people who have had a moral education. Organizations have to respond to their responsibilities through collective decisions. The fact that an organization should take responsibility for their actions is not new. In all countries, there is detailed legislation, civil, criminal, labor, administrative, commercial, specifying that responsibilities do individuals and corporations. In developed countries there are also sufficiently reliable judicial systems that try to impose legal responsibilities when necessary. What is new is the social consciousness that there is corporate responsibility, and must be paid even when the law fails to impose. For example when it concerns acts committed outside the borders of the country of nationality of the corporation, where no law protects the property affected or when the process of legal redress is so slow that it is useless. In these cases, and in many fights, both external and internal pressure agents directly to the organization, as they can to take responsibility for their actions, regardless of whether or not a legal obligation to do; (Shaw, & Barry, 2009; Badiner, 2002; Field, 2007) indicate that business ethics is a branch of applied ethics which deals with the study of policy issues of a moral nature that arise in the world of business which is concerned with business management, organization of a corporation, the behavior in the market, business decisions, etc.
