Problem 1.) Imagine your organization had no policy or code of ethics. If the company's top executive asked you to create a code of ethics policy for the company, what would you include? What approach would you use? Why would you select that approach? Provide at least two examples of items you would include in your code of ethics and describe why they are important to your company's code.
Problem 2.) Imagine you are a division manager at a large pharmaceuticals company. You directly supervise average and above average performing employees. Many employees on your team have been with the company for several years. Some recently hired employees, mostly women and minority groups, were hired to remedy the lack of diversity in the workplace. Recent financial difficulties within the company require each division manager to reduce their workforce by 15%. Describe the process you would use to make this decision. How do you ethically justify your decision.
