No, as company runs with customer's rather than employees, Whatever may be the situation, a small lie leads to a loss of a valuable customer if he knows the truth, A lie which is beneficial to company is said when there is no risk in lying.

No, I don't lie, because when that small lie comes to light the image of our company will damage in large, so I'll try to solve problem, but not with a lie. If you lie once they will never trust you again.

This another question that pits two values against one another, in this case loyalty against integrity.

BEST ANSWER: Try to avoid choosing between two values, giving a positive statement which covers all bases instead.

Example: "I would never do anything to hurt the company.

If aggressively pressed to choose between two competing values, always choose personal integrity. It is the most prized of all values.

Sir frankly speaking I never want to lie for a company sir because it will damage the company\'s reputation and I think the company will not expect me to lie because the company always want me to be honest sir and just I want to be honest to the customers because our company and ourselves are relying on the customers sir.

It totally depend on the situation, If customer ask me that your company had this/that kind of facility or not, and customer is having good deal for my company which make bigger profits so I lie him that we are working for it and ask my seniors to give concern on this type of facility and make my company to fulfill the customer requirements. Outside this limitations I'll never lie because no one can hide the truth.

I don't think such kind of problem arise in this leading company. Instead of going for lie we should think about other best alternative. If I will lie it will impact the goodwill and this lie leads to other hundreds of lies. Honesty is right solution to all problems.

It totally depends on the situation, if my one lie will be beneficial for 10 peoples and don't hurt any personal ego or prestige only then I can otherwise I will Never lie. Because Lie cannot remain hidden for long time. It may be caught.

Sir, It depends on the situation. Usually I do not prefer to lie because getting success based on lie would never be call success. But if my lie is for the benefit of the company and I know that majority of people would not get affected with this then I can lie.

Sir, in my views any work done by telling a lie is not persistent. Rather, I will look into the matter and to the best of capabilities I would try to solve the problem so that the work done by me pleases the clients and the company too.

This depends on the situation.

As we are in corporate, sometimes lies are necessary to save our clients or customers.

I will definitely lie if it is necessary to save our company repo.

But I will not lie if it hurts some moral values.

See lying is not a action which needs a reaction its common people lie whenever they faces a dilemma to come out with so I can lie to solve the problems which don't have further existence after solution and not such place where a company can suffer from great cause and it also depends on the product sometimes people doesn't believe in truth also such as you see in front of the pack of cigarette its mention smoking causes cancer but then also people smoke with style but at last we cannot ignore this fact that lying symbolises a bad action.

Sometimes small lies are ethical for a job. If a little lie helps the organization to earn more profit then I will lie and moreover both the Art Of Kurukshetra & Chanakya's Bussiness Tricks gives a thumbs up to the ethical lies.

Sorry to say sir but I'm sure there would not be any company who would make their employees to speak lies, getting short term benefits is like nothing and I cannot lie to the company in which I work, it would be better if we can make a better conclusion so that there would be no need to speak lies.

As we all know telling lie is not a good practice but if a single lie can lift our company's position or can be in favor of our company then I don't think it is a big crime because we all are not "Harishchandra" (a great man known for the truthful character). If we can lie to someone for our need without any guilty then telling lie for a good cause is never a crime.

No for sure. I am a person who strongly believes in maintaining ethics and principles. Even if lie may help the company in the short run, it won't justify in the long run. If the stakeholders come to know about the lie, surely the company will lose its reputation and I don't think such kind of reputation is needed at all. When someone believes us, we should be careful not to bluff.
