ETHICS- A case analysis.

We completed a fascinating case analysis on business ethics, and I was able to discern several unethical concerns that were brought to our attention.In this case, Hassan described how his employer has been hostile to him, how she yells at him for minor mistakes, and how she degrades him. When he was 20 minutes late for work on a particular day, he mentioned that his child had been sick all night and that he couldn’t sleep early because of it, which was why he was late. She threatened and went head to reduce his salary. It will be interesting to note that, Compassion doesn’t quite operate on a give-and-take basis. It is an additional aspect of altruism. It’s an example of empathy in action.
When we see that an employee is in pain or experiencing personal pressures, we should strive to actively listen to them and make them feel safe without condemning or penalising them for unfortunate situations that are not self-inflicted. We should be able to see ourselves in their situation, treat them kindly and with respect. This encourages employee loyalty, commitment, and motivation.

In three years, Mr. Kiba had changed drivers nine times. He also had a tendency of yelling at his drivers and calling them a variety of derogatory names. Kunle overheard him once refer to his driver as a stupid man, saying that he was only a mere driver because he never uses his common sense; and he also said he would easily replace him as he does others, boasting about how easy it was to do that” . While resorting to name-calling and verbal abuse is far from professional. it is also unethical and condescending to use words that demeans, offends, threatens, shames, intimidates, or insults another person. That is verbal abuse. It is degrading to be labeled “stupid” at work. Anyone who attacks their own staff is undermining their own morale and That is not exactly business brilliance.
Like a professional, excellent managers protect morale and leave leftover hostility at the door. And also threatening to terminate their contracts so easily is unethical practice. Employees should have a sense of job security and stability.

Solo also claimed that the previous couple he worked for treated him like trash, and he lost confidence as a result. He had extreme thoughts. On two instances, he had considered ramming the car into a trailer and killing himself and his employer. But thankfully, he obtained his present position, so that didn’t happen.
Imagine how terrible a boss, you can for your employee to contemplate suicide. Or maybe not. But we should understand that mistreatment of a member of your staff can cause them to feel sad, humiliated, and lose confidence, and can even lead to work depression.
When this occurs, you can expect their morale and productivity to collapse. While a job may not cause depression, the environment can exacerbate symptoms in those who already suffer from depression.
Depending on the degree of stress and accessible assistance, every workplace or job can be a possible cause or a contributing factor to depression.
Depression is a complicated illness with a wide range of manifestations of thoughts, feelings, and behavior that may impact anyone and everyone. From the case we can see that those driven to the wall can react badly. We should learn to treat people with respect. It pays to be firm but kind. When they were ambushed by thieves, Yusuf from the case was ready to take a shot for his boss. He didn’t want anything bad to happen to his boss, which illustrates how wonderful his boss was in every way.
