It depends on the circumstance, if the lie will be beneficial for the company but doesn't harm others then I will lie but if it harms anyone mentally or financially then clearly I wouldn't lie.

It totally depends on the situation but more preferably I will find out the other solution to the problem which is beneficial for me and my company as well instead of speaking lie. Because every problem has a solution.

Assume that, if I will lie for the company but sooner or later one-day truth will reveal then the reputation of my company will be disputed.

It's okay to lie when no one is hurt. If the company or we have to lie, we have to see that there is no loss to the company or us in the times to come. I believe that no company or we should lie so that people's trust in us or the company remains.

No sir, I never lie for the company to protect the dignity and respect of my seniors and the company. Because I believe that a lie only postpones the outcome not preventing it from always hitting back in some way or another and also if I lie it directly puts my seniors in bad lighting that what kind of guidance they are giving to their juniors which I never want.

Definitely no, because I believe that convincing or explaining the situation is an optimal solution instead of lying. Lying can decline the company's reputation. No one can hide the fact too long when they know the truth our company may lose the trust. And we should remember trust is most expensive and can't be purchasable.

Thank you sir/mam for asking.

If it puts a positive impact on the company and on my associates then definitely I'll go for a Lie. Also if any other way possible to get rid of the situation smartly then it's better to go with the latter one because it would also help me in enhancing my thinking skills for such situations that may I face in my future.
Thanks a lot!

Well, I don't think there is any reason to lie to the customer at first place considering if you are selling or settling any dispute with the customer, also they would be notified by the services they got offered and that would reflect on the monthly bill. Ultimately, that would put a negative impression on the customer and might lead him/her switching services if false promises are made.

Hence, I strongly believe, be honest with whatever services we offer to the customer.

Well, that totally depends upon the impact the lie would create over the company and the people associated with it if it aims to bring a positive impact, with no means I would say no. But in case the lie is very unprofessional and can cause harm to society I would have to say no, as in future if revealed I'll lose my credibility as a professional.

Yes, if my lie can make a good and positive impact on majority of people and company. Lord krishna who is god of satya, karam, dharam and vachana had also lied in situations which can cause a good impact on others, then who am I just a human!

So, I will definitely lie in such situations.

If I say I would lie for the company, than that'll assert that I can lie for my personal benefit too. But sir lying for personal benefit only makes me happy and will create a series of lies thereafter, I would never do that. Yeah but in a very rare case, if it's extremely necessary for the company and makes a positive impact, than I could think of lying.

I would never lie sir, even if it creates positive impact.

Do I know to make up that one lie how many other lies I have to say in future?

No. A lie can never yeild a persistent positive outcome. Rather we must deal with the consequences even we are not ready for it, doing that won't harm but will prepare us other unknown challenges.

No, I can't, because I said lie my company would safe from temporary, but not for permanent. By saying lie, in some condition, the problem would solve and you have helped your company from a bug, but I am sure "Because of telling lie in that situation, the company should face so many problems in future".

Sir lying is a sin, but if the company would go bankrupt if I wouldn't lie then I would lie on behalf of the company but later on work on that lie or situation and ultimately turn it to be the truth and face my customers with confidence and would not regret later for the lie I have spoken.

Depend upon situations, if my lie doesn't hurt anyone, depend upon consequences, if its a situation of someone's survival. Then I may tell lie. For personal benefit definitely won't tell lie. But I don't know when I last time lied and I hope that kind of situation not arise where I should compromise with my ethics.

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.
