Good ethical practices is
something that is expected of all employees that apply for a job as it is a
very important factor that deals with moral principles. It is the principals
that dictates how a person behaves and how they are capable of handling a
situation or activity when given. This will reflect on how an employee performs
overall, and how they keep work place ethics at a stable level to keep work

practices in many different ways to benefit the company. Ethics is the
foundation to build the workplace peace and harmony if employees behave in an

There are plenty of examples to show unethical behaviors
in the work places can cause so many problems in the workplace. To lead a
company to it success both employee and employer has to behave in an ethical
manner. As an employee if a person behave unethically like behaves in an abuse
manner in the work place, misusing workplace property, bullying fellow
employees and stealing from the workplace and etc. How can a company leads to
it success or produce a good product if employees who work there act in this
way. On the other hand if the owner as an employer behave in an unethical
manner like lying to employees, do not caring about the workers and thinks only
about that productivity, not paying wages correctly how can a work place become
a good work place and how the employees in the work place can work in these
unfair working conditions. Suicide is one of the main unfortunate consequences
of workplace bullying (Brotheridge & Lee, 2006; Samnani & Singh, 2012).This
will lead the company to its downfall. Downsizing, and increased caseloads can
be a recipe for burnout among staff (Courtois & Ford, 2013) Because of
unethical behavior of the staff members there can be a war in the company
inside. It can even cause inside rebellion. It all because of unethical
behaviors. According to (Courtois & Ford, 2013) True harm is perpetrated
when the organization or individual leaders do not facilitate ethical
practices. The tradition of the work place surrounding may then be toxic. The
betrayal of acceptable criterion of conduct in a work place relationship
between an employer and employee can result in the ontogeny of distress for the
victim of such behavior.

 

 

 

 

 

According to a research was done by May, Luth
and Schwoerer (2013) it has proven that the ethical practice in a work place
can be directly affect to the employees work there and it directly affect to
the productivity of the place. The research was about weather ethics can be
influenced student’s self confidence in their abilities to pursue solutions to
the ethical issues of working with customers (lesson efficiency), importance of
ethics in their day to day life and for the experiment they have used two sets
of 30 students and for a one team they practiced ethics and good behavior for
the team they didn’t. And after the graduation of those two teams. And the
result was significantly positive increased in the team which has practiced
ethics and the result of the other uncontrolled team wasn’t good as the
controlled team. The finally they discovered that the great increase was in
moral efficacy, followed by moral courage and meaningfulness of moral. It has
proven the importance of ethical behavior in a work place. And without
practicing ethical practices without moral principles to a work place cannot be
a good work place and it can directly affect to the name of workplace and to
the employee and to the employer.

 

 

Good ethical practice can lead a workplace a
better place it makes employer and employee happy and it satisfies the employer
and employee both at the same time. If an employee works loyalty to the company
he works, promise keeping and works trustworthy, and works honestly so it will
considered as that person has a good practice in ethics. When an employee
become more honest and trustworthy the employer can trust him easily and an honest
person never betray his workplace or never try to destroy the name of the
company. On the other hand when an employer becomes friendly and respects his
own employees and pays a suitable wage for them, care about them the employee
never tries to leave the work place or do any harm to the work place. .
“…ethical leaders do more than show followers what is right or wrong – if they
behave authentically, they are also able to have greater influence over
subordinates because they are operating ethically” (Hunter, 2012, p. 81). As
hunter has proved as an employer he should have good leadership qualities an
ethical leader knows what his responsibilities he knows his opportunities and
he knows that his actions impact the whole workplace then a good ethical leader
plays his role by helping to create an environment in which principled
reasoning and ethical decision making.

 

 

In order to practice a good ethical behavior
what should do? Social work educators have a role in supporting the growing of
moral philosophy and righteousness (Holmstrom, 2014). In order to practice good
ethical behavior can start to train employees first, an employer cannot expect
his staff to work ethically in agreement with his company’s set of ethics If
they don’t know and they don’t have any understanding about it then it is
important to teach them about it first and keep regular ethical sessions and
show them how to approach ethical dilemmas among the staff members. Then they
will get to know what is ethic and how to behave in a good ethical manner. And
the employer (leader) must show an example to the employees in being ethical
employer. Employer can encourage the employees by rewarding them for their
ethical behavior because all of the companies expect ethical behavior from its
employees if someone is get rewarded to his ethical behavior it will be a great
motivation to the other members in the staff. And as an employee they he has a
responsibility to practice his own ethics and behave like a good ethical
employee. If all of the employees in a company think like that and behave like
a good ethical employee the company will be stronger and productivity of that
company will go high.

 

 

 

Opinion

 

So as I have pointed out behave in a work place
in an ethical manner is more important than anything to day because without
good practice in ethics without good morals a workplace cannot survive. Ethical
behavior is the bridge which connect employer and employee. It is the main bond
which keep employer and employee. So without employer- employee relationship
how can a work place survive it is an impossible thing. Practically being
ethics is not that much harder it can be done with practice. As I have proved
earlier without ethics in the workplace it will lead the workplace to its
downfall. It will cause thousands of problems in the work place it may harm the
name of the employer and the name of the work place. So it is really important
to have a good understanding and a good practice in ethical behavior. If an
employee becomes a very ethical person and his employer becomes an unethical
person then there is no use of it. If an employer becomes a very ethical person
and his employee becomes an unethical person then there is no use of it either.
So it is very important that both of them employer and employer should act in
an ethical manner. So according to my point of view it is really important to
behave in an ethical manner in the work place and we can practice it in our day
today life.

 

 

Conclusion

 

Ethical problems do matter and it plays a major
role in our day to day life in the work place. Behaving in an ethical manner
and avoiding being unethical in the work places. Through ethical behavior can
built a healthy and fresh environment to work. It preserve the employees
individually and strengthen the care of clients. And ethical behavior can leads
the workplaces to success and it grows and build up the relationship between
employee and employer. It is really important to have a better understanding
about ethics and practice the ethical behavior.
