On the way back arrangements were made so that homework was emailed to them.
They had seven days to do it.
Sadly NOT ONE of the students did the homework.
It was homework especially chosen to make them T-H-I-N-K.
What a let-down!
Repercussions will follow........
Ethics in Business
What will it look like or what will it do?
Topic: Environmental Protection
Characters: Bethany, Manager in new product development with a large chemical company
Boris Stone, Plant Supervisor and Bethany's superior
A large chemical company to oversee the construction of production facilities to produce a new product recently hired
The company has had mediocre performance for several quarters partly as a result of the anticipated recession, and everyone is anxious to see the new product do well. Tests have shown it to be a top-quality industrial lubricant that can now be produced at a cost significantly below those of their competitors. Orders have been flowing in, and the plant is selling everything it can produce. Morale in the company has increased significantly because of the success of the new product in the context of general economic turbulence and gloom. Due to the success of the new product, all employees are looking forward to sizeable bonuses from the company's profit sharing plan.
No one in the company wants to attract any unwarranted attention from the environmental groups. They give us enough trouble as it is. The best thing we can do is make money while the company can and deal with issues as they come up. Don't go trying to cause trouble without any proof. The company doesn't like troublemakers, so watch your step. You're new here, and you wouldn't want to have to find a new job.”
