Master Dissertation

DEVELOPMENT OF BUSINESS ETHICS IN COMPANIES AND ITS IMPACT ON LOWERING THE TURNOVER RATE OF EMPLOYEES IN THE ORGANIZATION: case of GOOGLE Company

The aim:

To find the most important parts of the code of conduct to the employees ( or you can include other stakeholders) that encourage them to remain with the company.

Objectives:

Identify the key importance of the code of ethics to the employees

Find out which parts of the code make the chosen company attract employees

Find out which parts of the ethical code make employees stay with the chosen company

Identify if there are parts of the ethical code that make employees want to leave company

Identify if there are parts of the ethical code that could be changed to make that company more attractive to employees and make them want to stay with the company

The expected length of the full dissertation is 15,000 words of what is called body-text, meaning the text of the dissertation not counting the abstract, list of references and/or bibliography (there is actually a technical difference between these two things noted below). The body-text does not include the abstract, bibliographic entries, figure captions, tables, lists of abbreviations, appendices or any declarations or acknowledgements. The figure of 15,000 is approximate, and students need not make exceptional accommodations to fit the dissertation precisely into 15,000 words. The guidelines state that a 10% leeway from the suggested figure will be acceptable

Abstract

100 – 500 words. See format shown

Table of Contents

Glossary (optional)

If a dissertation contains unfamiliar abbreviations or technical terms it is helpful to include a glossary at this point.

Body of Work

Usually presented as a series of chapters

A conventional form, suitable for many dissertations might be:

· Introduction

· Aims and Objectives

· Literature Review

· Methodology

· Results

· Conclusions

Although all these elements must be present in every ‘body of work’ it is not essential that they are presented either under those headings or, necessarily, in that order. It will very much depend on your subject and your approach End Material

End material should include:

References: Citations of specific works referred to directly in the text. Make sure you use a conventional referencing system – Harvard or British Standard – for example, see the University Publication Getting it Right! viewable on the MD4801 BlackBoard page.

Bibliography: List of additional material consulted, but not directly cited in the text. Use Harvard system for this.

Appendices: (optional) charts, graphs, additional data, photographs, videos, maps, sample instruments etc which support the text, but are sufficiently marginal not to be included in the body of the work. Appendices are usually labelled alphabetically, although if there is little such material and it is all of a similar nature, it may all be included in one appendix.

It is not acceptable to insert photocopies of tables into the body of the dissertation. Tables should be word processed into the text. Generally this also applies to diagrams – no photocopies or scans from books. There may be occasions where photocopies are appropriate – to illustrate original historical material, or advertisements under discussion in the text, for example

Strategy 4

  For each assignment, your similarity score must meet a threshold of no more than 10%.

Strategy in Action 2

As an aside – My personal belief is that concepts and theories are of little value to each us if we do not learn to apply them to the real world. For this reason, we will have applied activities as often as possible.  We are always learning together, myself included.  Please feel free to call or email me if you want to discuss further.

This SIA assignment requires you apply a concept or theory we have learned to a subject that is current in the ‘real’ world. The assigned topic for Application Assignment 2 is:  Southwest Airlines (SWA)

In Chapter 7, we examine and explore a variety of business unit strategies.  Included in these discussions are low-cost, differentiation, and low-cost/differentiation.

Your assignment (read carefully): Conduct additional research on low-cost, differentiation, and low-cost/differentiation (there is a TON out there on these subjects) to find at least 5 quality sources. This research can be from any industry. Using our textbook as well as your own research write at least two pages of analysis and discussion of the low-cost/differentiation (it is a combination of these two) strategy utilized by SWA ~ you can identify the good/bad/successes/blunders in this section.  How will this strategy need to be modified due to COVID-19?  Next, based on your findings, prepare a one-page recommendation for the board of directors of SWA that includes the discussion and high level implementation plan for at least 3 new initiatives SWA can pursue while maintaining their current strategy of low cost/differentiation. It is appropriate to include COVID-19 specific guidelines.  Put these together in one document for a MINIMUM  three pages of content (not including reference and title pages).  Please follow APA format guidelines.

In other words, after writing an analysis of Southwest Airlines (SWA) utilization of a low cost/differentiation strategy including the incorporation of at least 5 references (2+pages), you should be in a position to make recommendations for the board (1+pages). Act as if you are a consultant who has been hired to help the company progress and begin their recovery from the pandemic. What advice or guidance would you offer them based on the information you ascertained during your analysis?  Include BOTH qualitative and quantitative support for your recommendations as you link your writing back to the course material as well as your own research.

*Remember, this is your ability to show off what you have learned as well as your ability to apply it to a current real world situation.

Turnitin Requirements:

  • For each assignment, your similarity score must meet a threshold of no more than 10%.

Business Ethics Paper

Text: Chef Robert Irvine’s résumé was impressive. According to the St. PetersburgTimes, he advertised his experience as including: < A bachelor’s of science degree in food and nutrition from the University of Leeds. < Royal experience working on the wedding cake for Prince Charles and Princess Diana. < He was a knight, as in Sir Robert Irvine, Knight Commander of the Royal Victorian Order, handpicked by the Queen. < For several consecutive years, he’d received the Five Star Diamond Award from the American Academy of Hospitality Sciences. < He’d served as a White House chef. The truth—when the newspaper revealed it on a splashy front-page article—wasn’t quite so overpowering: < The claimed BS degree? According to a press officer at the University of Leeds, “We cannot find any connection in our records between Robert and the university.” < The royal wedding cake? Well, he did help pick some of the fruit that went into it. < The knighthood? No. < The Five Star Diamond Award? True, but it’s not the AAA’s prestigious Five Diamond Award or Mobil’s five stars. The American Academy of Hospitality Sciences is actually a guy’s apartment in New York, and the award is granted to anyone who pays a fee. < White House chef? Kind of. But he didn’t prepare sophisticated dishes for the president or anything like that; he cooked food for the cafeteria line, serving military workers at the White House.[17] After the truth came out, Chef Irvine was fired from his popular TV show on the Food Network, Dinner: Im- possible. A few months later, however, after the scandal blew over and he’d corrected his résumé, he reapplied for his old job, was rehired, and he’s on TV today.

Questions:  1. When Irvine first applied for the job as TV show chef, he had to consider whether he should “embellish” his résumé, and if so, how far he should go. What ethical responsibilities should he have considered? To whom? 2. The five types of positive résumé misrepresentations are < false credentials, < false experience, < false chronology, < embellished experience, < false references. Negative résumé misrepresentations have also been discussed. Looking back at Irvine’s résumé adventure, can you label each of his transgressions? 3. Are some of the lies worse than others in the sense that they relate directly to his ability to be a successful TV chef? Are others less objectionable because they don’t relate to the job he was applying for? Why or why not? 4. It’s better to seek forgiveness than ask permission. a sense, that’s what Irvine did. He lied on his résumé, got the job, did well, got caught having lied on the résumé, got fired, sought forgiveness, got it, and got back a TV show job he might never have received had he not lied in the first place. Ethically, how could you go about justifying his course of action? 5. The Internet site Fakeresume.com includes the following advice for job seekers: “Hiring Managers Think You’re Lying Anyway!! Yep that’s right, the majority of human resources managers assume that EVERYONE embellishes, exaggerates, puffs up and basically lies to some extent on your résumé. So if you’re being totally honest you’re being penalized because they’re going to assume that you embellished your résumé to a certain extent!”[18] Assume you believe this is true, can you make the ethical case for being honest on your résumé regardless of what hiring managers think?  6. Assume Fakeresume.com is right. Everyone“embellishes, exaggerates, puffs up and basically lies to some extent on their résumé.” On the basis of the obligations you hold to others (hiring managers, coworkers, other applicants) and to yourself, could you form the argument that you have an ethical responsibility to lie? 7. You have a friend you like and respect. You’ve spent a lot of time with him over the years in school and you know he’s very responsible, a hard worker, and smart. He’d be good at almost any entry-level type job; you’re sure of it. He comes to you and asks you to fake having been his boss for a pizza delivery business. “I just want,” he says, “someone out there who I can count on to say I’m the good, responsible type. You know, someone who’s always on time for work, that kind of thing.” Would you do it? Justify your answer.

Discussion

Per the text, when patients cannot receive needed medical care, nursing services, or rehabilitation therapies in a community-based setting, they are typically admitted to a long-term care facility, where medical care is traditionally delivered by physicians and/or practitioners with advanced qualifications.

  • Compare and contrast the roles of the medical director and the DON.
  • Select the role which has the overall greater impact on patient care.
  • Provide a rationale for your response.
