Sir, 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.

Sir, according to ethics lie is not lie unless and until it give positive result. Most of time lie can be worse situation for company. Lie also can most dangerous for long term goal of company. So most probably I will say no, if lie helps the company to achieve new height without hampering it's reputation, reliability and also helps majority of people then I will not hesitate to go ahead and tell lie.

No need to lie, because lies have no good end products. Even when I lie the truth will still come out. Lies whatever case is normally motivated by corrupted minds and thoughts. The answer to lying lies in hard work to achieve what the company envision. I don't encourage lies.

Sir, It depends on the Situation. Because lie telling for a company is a good sign of good employee but Not sign of good person and loyal person. Its a kind of humanity. If our lie makes our organisation safe from anu trouble without hearing anybody. Then. You can tell lie. Otherwise, tell the truth. 100%.

No!

First, I try to telling truth to tackle the problem by smart work because today one lie created tomorrow also another lie created so it's not a solution for well-reputed organisation, but still not a problem solved to understand the situation and telling lie.

It totally depends upon the situation. If lying is the last option to tackle the situation for my company I have to do it but only if it is the last, otherwise I will use my creativity to deal with the situation because in life we always have the second option. We just need to find it and make it count.

That will depend on how big the lie is. If the lie involves huge risk for the company and for me then I would certainly not lie because my job is to uplift my company and not to assist in degrading it sooner or later. But if it is a small harmless lie with no foreseeable risk then I would consider lying.

No, I won't lie. Lie is not a solution to any problem because if we lie one time you have to lie again and again to hide the previous lie. Also it cannot remain hidden for a long time. Lie cannot become a growth factor of company. So, I won't lie at any situation.
