Causal Argument – theintern

Ethics determines the profits/losses

People don’t realize but their so called “morals” change once they get exposure to the business world. Normal morals are different from business morals. Normal morals are the principles or habits taught by our parents/guardians to understand and state what is the right and wrong choice to make or do. While business ethics falls under different standards; it is mostly the rules of conduct that a company gives to their employees which usually affect their morals because sometimes we are unwilling to do the tasks of what the company we work for ask us to do. We ask ourselves why do we follow these unethical rules the reason is why we want to keep our jobs and keep supporting our families. The effects of telling the company we work for that we will not follow these unethical rules will end in either getting fired or told that there will be changes but most likely lose the job.

In the business world we won’t hear too much about business ethics, though another term we do hear is corporate social responsibility which is somewhat like ethics just a more narrowly concern about the company’s obligations. CSR plays an important role in every firm or company in the United States. CSR and business ethics go hand in hand if either of them are tampered with or in another terms, people change the rules and make it their own the business will be corrupt and there will not be as much profit. Word gets out when businesses do not perform well and lack in any of the four axes such as being a committed employer, build relationships with our customers, serve civil society, being an environmentally friendly player. I believe that the CSR is like an insurance for business ethics, CSR is there to provide people with guidance on how to act within the firm with everybody. However if CSR starts to lack no customer will seek guidance from that firm/company again because of how their service lacked. This effects the business tremendously for example if customers stop recommending others to come to our firm we can not make profit and worse run of out business. That is why having the right kind of ethics is important and should always be looked upon and checked every now and then.

One Response to Causal Argument – theintern

    First of all, TheIntern, both your Definition and your Causal arguments are very shy of the 1000-word count. This one isn’t even 400 words. A good paper on a topic this big would have to been tens of thousands of words, while your ultimate budget will be a mere 3000, so you SHOULD be in a position of having to radically CUT your material down to squeeze it into your short arguments. If you can’t find 1000 words of cause and effect about business ethics, you aren’t doing enough research.

    Your links don’t work, but a Google search led me to this page:
    https://www.esi-group.com/company/investors/news/formalization-csr-approach-line-esi-groups-values

    It’s not an academic source, TheIntern, but a bit of corporate public relations (PR) in which they tell the world that they are a responsible organization with a strong commitment to their business and social responsibilities. Every company will say this about itself, but it doesn’t tell us much about how the company actually operates, does it? Undoubtedly Enron spoke about itself in similar fashion before its massive fraud was exposed.

    You need to find some sources that quantify something.

    In two minutes, with a simple Google Scholar search for “corporate ethics violations” I found this entirely relevant source for you:
    https://link.springer.com/article/10.1007/s10551-015-2868-x

    Title: Corporate Social Responsibility Failures: How do Consumers Respond to Corporate Violations of Implied Social Contracts?
    The premise is that the type of social contracts or standards in place may determine how consumers, through their individual and collective behaviors, can play a direct role in influencing corporate behavior, when corporations fail to meet social responsibility standards. An experiment conducted with a large sample of consumers in the United States shows that consumers respond differently to a company’s failure in its social responsibilities depending on whether the violated standard is a government mandate or a voluntary commitment and depending on the consumers’ own environmental consciousness. The findings highlight the potential power of individual consumers and consumer collectives in narrowing the governance gaps relative to social and environmental issues and reducing the likelihood of CSR failures.

    TheIntern, even if this particular source isn’t as good as it looks, its References list will lead you to 50 or more excellent additional sources. Follow the link and see for yourself. Start reading more widely in your topic until you find some specifics to add credibility to your assertions.
