JIM Edge (e-Magazine), Vol. 1, Issue 7

  1. 1. JIM EDGE Ethics at Workplace VOL 1 ISSUE 7 During challenging economic times, the relationship between employees and employers is often tested. Frequently, executives are forced to make decisions that broadly affect their workforces and alter what matters in the workplace. Today’s business environment is no exception; it appears that the recession has diminished two important forms of business currency: trust and ethics. Ethics are making a comeback. To begin with, more and more corporations and businessmen and women are now realizing that ethics are not checked at the door when entering the workplace. Ethics have every bit as much a place in the public as they do the private. How it is there should be separate sets of ethics, depending upon whether it is your personal life or your work life? The answer is that there should not be a separate set and in light of recent events that we see on our television sets as of late, more and more companies are realizing this fact. Ethics are about making choices that may not always feel good or seem like they benefit you but are the right choices to make. They are the choices that are examples of model citizens and examples of the golden rules. We've all heard the golden rules: Don't hurt, don't steal, don't lie, or one of the most famous: Do unto others as you would have done to you. These are not just catchy phrases; these are words of wisdom that any productive member of society should strive to live by. In our personal lives, most people try to do exactly that. Ethics are thought of by many people as something that is related to the private side of life and not to the business side. In many businesses, having ethics is frowned upon or thought of as a negative subject. This is because business is usually about doing what's best for number one, not about what's really the right thing to do. You probably are already feeling uneasy just reading this. Had ethics been considered in the first place by the leaders of the company, there would have been no scandal. If ethics were used on a daily basis in every company, there would never be scandals. Today, it has become utmost important to develop ethical competence in employees and it is a long process. The primary requisition for ethical competence development right understands. The competence can be build by following methods-  Clarity about the comprehensive human goal  Confidence in oneself as well as confidence in the harmony, co- existence and self-regulation,  Competence of mutually fulfilling behaviour, clarity and confidence in ethical human conduct  Competence of actualizing one’s understanding in real life. With the help of these methods the employees can be made more ethical and trust can be build among them. Ms. Bhavna Malik Faculty, JIM, Vasundhara, Ghaziabad
  2. 2. Corporate Resource Center PAGE 2 INTERVIEW ETIQUETTE Amrita Mishra MBA-II Sem, HR Club Member One of the most dreaded words in the English language for job seekers young and old. Your etiquette and people skills can make the difference between an adequate performance and one that will launch your level 2 of the hiring process. How do your manners measure up? Here are some tips related to INTERVIEW ETIQUETE- NO DO-OVERS IN FIRST IMPRESSIONS In a job interview you’re given a bit more time to shine—approximately 30 seconds…since there’s no rewind button to undo a false start, don’t blow this opportunity. Enter the interview room with enthusiasm and energy, it’ll help to mask your nervousness. Smile, eye contact and try to maintain an open posture. AVOID WARDROBE MALFUNCTIONS Always dress up and dress conservatively for a job interview. Remember how your parents told you to dress up in-front of your elders? Their reasoning was that we show respect for the organization or an individual by dressing up. Your polish indicates that you think the interview and potential employer matter and that you respect them and the situation. DON’T UNDEREESTIMATE THE POWER OF SMILE A smile shows not only confidence, but a pleasant nature. It invites others to get to know you, so always have smile on face while interview. BODY LANGUAGE SPEAKS VOLUMES Tips-make eye contact and maintain an open posture. This means aligning your shoulders with the shoulders of the person to whom you are speaking, whenever possible. Do the best you can in a situation where a number of people are interviewing you. MASTERING THE ART OF MEET AND GREET Maintain an open posture when shaking hands, smile, make eye contact, and say your first and last name. EXIT STRATEGY When interview is over, reiterate your interest in the position, and thank the group for spending time with you. Keep a smile on your face and your cell phone turns off until you leave the building.
