It depends on the condition if my lie is for the profit of the company then I will do it. But never for self-benefits, because it gives me access to do it another time.

No I'll not lie what ever it may be because if I lie I should lie once again to cover last lie, so better to finish it by telling one truth.

I do not lie to advance personal or business goals. There is always an honorable way to succeed and I will always work towards genuinely earned success.

As long as I am in accordance with company and legal guidelines, I would do what is best for the company and try to effectively resolve any issues that may arise.

I think if I will tell lie it means something is wrong with service or product or both. In that particular situation, I will try to remove the problem as far as possible but I never tell a lie because everything will disclose sooner or later and also the reputation of the company also lost. Thanks.

In my opinion, we should not tell lie whether it is beneficial for our company or not.

Beacause lie gives us satisfaction for some time but if we will tell the truth then it harms for a couple of time but it will be benifial for a lifetime.

Defrauding is against the ethics of the company.

And the extent of lie does not last for a longer period.

So it would be better to be in a critical situation as one day you can find ways to come out of that. But going against your own principles. Is something what a company with good morals should not do and as a employee of the same. I would choose of not lieing.

This is a question on ethical dilemma. Obviously, if the organisation is in great trouble I will be one of the first people to do something to alleviate the situation. I am a loyal person and will probably be the last one to leave a sinking ship.

Sir.

This is a very typical situation and a testing one also. My decision would be that I will not lie although I love this company and I love my part of the job but I cannot trade with my principles for the job I have from the beginning of my life build these principles it took me half of my life to establish personality such that I have it in me that I do not play anytime in life whatever the situation might be. Super it becomes very difficult for me to break these rules in my life although I will do anything else which might help the company. I hope you understand my problem as you have understood me before in the past on many occasions.

If you lie in any profession You aren't trustworthy, its a business after-all. You have to be transparent. I'VE worked in the company where they had kind of invisible lie detector because company worked so smartly.

Your work your dedication, and your profile has to be trusted.
