Ethics Awareness
1. Explain the role of ethics and social responsibility in developing a strategic plan, considering stakeholder’s needs.
(A) Stakeholder can be a person, group, organization, or system who affects or can be affected by an organization’s actions. Society expects businesses to be responsible both socially and ethically. “Businesses are supposed to respect the environment, pursue fairness in dealing with internal and external customers, and strive to improve their communities” (Romani, 1998). Ignoring the ethical standards will have an adverse impact on businesses as well as the consumers.

In the Williams Institute for Ethics and Management there are four key elements that define how one uses personal ethics. The elements consist of “understanding and caring about what is good or right, comparing alternatives, formulating opinions regarding what actions are morally appropriate and acquiring necessary skills needed to make the decision. The role of ethics is influenced by our own moral values and experiences learned from behavior.” (Williams Institute for Ethics and Management, 2012)(Or own moral background is a big part of this ) Social responsibility and ethics will continue to play a vital role in developing a strategic plan. Today with the increase technology and communication organizations must proactively look whether the decision they make are ethical to its stakeholders
2. Explain how your ethical perspective has evolved throughout the program.
Charletta’s Ethical perspective has evolved from knowing about ethics and then going to a level of making statements about work that is being turned in from Charletta as being true. The Originality statement really brought Charletta to a place of looking carefully of what Charletta is saying and to be sure to cite and reference everything that was not from Charletta. (Very important) Charletta tries to always do what is right and being a UOP student has really opened up Charletta’s s eyes to see that it affects not only you as a person but how you view everything in your life. (and how it effects others around you) I am glad to have experienced ethical perspective because you see it not only from your workplace but from all aspects of being in the workplace, school, family or relationships. Charletta feels that UOP made a wise decision in implementing the Originality statements to attach to assignments to keep students accountable for what they are doing. (Good job!)
