“ Ethics was a course in which students had the chance to speak their mind about what they thought about the work environment. This course taught me how to act and maintain ethical thinking at work. We had debates, and in these debates we all had different opinions. Some people might think, “Those kids are in high school they just follow the crowd everyone thinks the same. Well, we all had voices in this class. There was a way for my classmates to acknowledge my perspective and now I know that I can make a difference in my Latino community by taking a chance to make a change. I have nothing to lose and everything to gain.” -Marianna Ramirez, Class of 2010
Ethics in Business: Student Learning Artifacts Lesson 10: Ethics in Finance and Accounting
Your company’s questionable ethics shouldn’t stop you from getting ahead in your career as long as you make a positive contribution to society in other ways, such as charitable donations or volunteer work.
Even if you are told to do something that goes against your better judgment, as long as you are not being asked to break the law, you should just keep quiet at work.
