Ethics Philosophy Human Resources Management
Assume you are applying for a senior-level position. The company has asked all applicants to submit an essay describing their ethics philosophy and principles. They have emphasized that clarity and succinctness are more highly valued than length. They have also emphasized they are not looking for any particular philosophy or set of principles but are emphasizing their belief that it is important for a senior-level professional communicate how he/she will function as an ethical leader. Specifically, they believe it is your responsibility as a professional to develop and communicate your philosophy and principles to both the administration and your staff so that there is a clear understanding of what you expect from them and what they can expect from you. The hospital’s interest in ethical philosophy and principles is due in large part to the most frequent criticism they heard about the previous job holder. That criticism was that he seemed inconsistent and confused in his positions, decisions and behaviors.
