Ethics are the moral values that are inculcated by a person in them so that they should follow the line they have drawn. On taking the business point of view Ethics are now becoming a pretence. As we see different businessman use to deliver false information about the product they are selling. They use to make ethical values on their business ground. They use their ethics as a profit earning tool In their business rather than thinking of their credibility.

However, from my point of view, Ethics in the business must withstand for the sake of people.

Yes I agree, ethics are just pretence for business as they need to be flexible, one cannot stay towards an ethics made by him.

It is based on situation. These are situational decisions that should be made by a businessman and that decision would be for betterment of company or business only.

Having one perception on ethics is not fair. Meaning of ethics is different for different people. It varies from individual to individual and organization to organization.

As covered by my friends in below comments that TATA and SATYAM Are the best examples to differentiate between the best and worst practices of ethics in business.

As we all know TATA is the first company which brings 8 hrs. Working in a day for employees. They believe in ownership of work and fully dedicated to providing best services and meeting the needs of people.

So it is very clear that for any business to be successful, ethics in doing business is very important.

Ethics in any business helps for a sustainable future for the company. Pretention today or tomorrow is bound to come into the light and that will be the end of the golden period for the organisation. If one organisation provides what it really claims people not only get attracted but become a loyal and valuable customer for the long run. So these very organisations must decide if they want temporary profit or long term accolades. Thank you.

Ethical scholars distinguish between morality and ethics. But we first start a discussion on morality, as historically morality has preceded ethics by centuries and has helped to guide and formulate ethics. Morality is as old as humanity. Our first ancestors had the same social objectives as we have today: mutual existence and peace within a group or community.

Ethics tells us what is right and wrong. If a company works ethically it would be great to provide quality products to consumer. If a company works ethically they can create a good image of their brand. If a brand/product recognized by customer as good then there is less changers may be occurred on its sale promotion and advertisement.

Ethics are some unwritten values which varies with persons places and of course the sphere of life it is incorporated in. As far as business stands with its conventional attributes of making profit and increasing sales not many of these conventional ethics can move parallel and in their crude form and becomes collateral to business aims and process. Hence an ethics in business are mostly pretentions.

Ethics are actually the unwritten keys to success. Yes the transparency and good practices are open to people to the customers, clients and sponsors everybody. An honest professional need to work hard focused to his goals in order to attain and retain reliable position in market. I think all successful people have ethics associated with them. All role models somewhere have some ethical stories behind their success and true beings. Smart use of your inefficiency with trying to do less harm to others can take you to heights.

Ethics helps us to do the things right so that it can be beneficial to society as well as own self, but when we talk ethics in business it is very wrong to say that its only pretense actually it depends from owner to owner for example some company gives importance to deliver the same as they promise ie quality product but at a same time other companies doing cheating by adulteration in product and pretends that they are doing business ethically so it is not like that, that ethics are always ignored by the profit it depends.

Ethics basically are the unwritten rules of conduct in any walk of really depends upon what philosophy your organisation believes in. for ex. tata group is always been associated with doing the things ethically, whereas what Satyam did was completely unethical. and I truly believe the true way to succed in business is to do the things ethically.

Frankly speaking ethics varies from person, institutes, companies etc. Thus no one can have same view on ethics. I personally believe its in the eyes of oneself as how they perceive it. It is not actually a business pretending its their duty toward the society where they are benefiting. Many companies have set examples by providing their best to the society. They should have good people practices and transparency in their dealings. No company is isolated from the outside world they are using the resources and thoughts they are specially bounded to give the returns.

Ethics are actually not meant to be but they are very subtly and efficiently put to business pretence in all social spheres to make better use of the meek. Be it political, be it social or be it corporal, ethics are quite wrongly made use of to deviate people from freedom of thought evaluation and exercising them on free will.
