Ethics and Ethic Officers
As it is well known, the translation of ethics in to tangible real life situation may open the doors for substantial squirm room for interpretation. Hence it rational to assume that a point of contact will enable individual business entities to create an environment which translates in uniform and consistent application of business morals, ethics and the consequent ambiguities
The benefit of creating such position maybe twofold: the initial implication that the particular stakeholders insist of volunteer efforts to implement common moral standards, as well as reduce possible legal liabilities that would otherwise exists.
Additionally, there may be some unintended consequences that may be positive in nature, such as volunteer implementation of procedures that enable the participation of minorities, prevent abuse, encourage accurate reporting as well as create a first line of defense for those that would be otherwise without a voice. Yet, Ethic Officers may also induce some negative impact in terms of internal conflicts, negative public relations; discourage team work as well as weakening employee unity.
Ultimately, it is a question of trial and error to achieve the most effective way to enhance the Ethic Officers ability to prevent negative immoral acts and practices, but not interfere with team building and employee unity efforts.
