Sir, I greatly discourage lying but if my lie doesn't harm anyone and if it becomes the last option to bring something good to our organisation then I think lying is OK otherwise, I don't recommend lying.

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.

If I blurted out a lie, I'll make sure to turn it into a truth so as to keep the interest of our clients in our company without loss of trust. Trust is the only bridge you can rely on in business. You lose that, you lose your business.

Hiding of company secrets to only way is lie when it may opposite issue to company or employee but it will reduce your dignity and self-respect from an employee so think twice to lie to maintain all of above things.

When good things will happen due to lie, is not a big issue in that situation.

To be a candidate, my answer is NO!

NO matter how beneficial the lie might be at that time, it would, in the long run, have a negative influence on the affairs of the company. What I would rather say is that I would always give my best to protect the integrity of my company and strive hard to make it a better place. Thank you.

Yes, definitely. Because my first duty is to accept every decision of my company whether it's about lying or anything. In support of this, I would like to say that if a soldier can kill his enemy without his personal enmity so why we can't say lie for our job. All we have to prove is our honesty for the company. After all, we can't take the responsibility of the whole world. So the best thing is doing our own work.

Jeff said: (Nov 8, 2016)  
I bet everyone lies for their company. When someone asks you how long it will take to complete a project for them, you lie and tell them it will take longer. This is because the nature of projects can change and so you lie to give yourself some leeway.

It depends on the nature of the lie and the consequences. Obviously, you shouldn't lie which will incriminate the company or be fraudulent, but there are lots of small and insignificant lies which are worth telling because they ultimately can make you more professional. If you promise you can get something done by X, but something comes up, surely it's better to say you can get it done by Y, thus giving yourself a bit more time?

No. I'm a Muslim and Islam prohibits lies. If I speak lie, then people will badmouth on our religion that Muslims are liars and won't believe us. So, I can't put my religion on stake for my company.

But I won't let any situation arise where I need to say lie for my company if at all it becomes mandatory then I will find any right solution to cope up with the problem rather than speaking lies.
