Keys to Hiring Ethical Personnel

 

Personnel that operate an organization effect the perception and the value of it. It is

 

important for organizations to hire personnel who will personify the vision of the organization.

 

The vision of an organization should come from its leadership and be convened to its customers

 

through its personnel. Ethical personnel can be the foundation of a successful organization. A

 

Code of Ethics and a Code of Conduct are valued tools to keeping ethics a priority in organizations. This essay will show keys to hiring ethical personnel and the importance to having

 

such codes as a guideline to keep a high ethical standard in an organization.

 

Hiring ethical personnel can be the key to an organizations success. Ethical people have a

 

positive effect on the customers perception of the company and the overall work environment. A

 

great work atmosphere and good customer reviews equal good effective business. The

 

importance of hiring ethical personnel can reinforce a high integrity work culture (Collins, 2012,

 

p. 74). The best way to ensure ethics is a part of organization is to hire ethical people. Ethical

 

people tend to work well together because of matching values.

 

According to Collins (2012), The Six-Step Ethics Job Screen Process targets the best

 

practices systematic, chronologic framework that complements an organizations recruiting

 

process. The six septs in the process are ethics screen notice, legal ground rules, behavioral

 

information, personality traits and related characteristics, interview questions and post interview

 

questions. Notifying potential employees of an ethics screen helps organizations recruit ethical

 

people because if a person is unethical they are more likely to shy away from this type of

 

screening. It is important for organizations to understand that the employees they seek have

 

rights and that laws like Title VII of the Civil Rights Act are set in place to prevent

 

discrimination. Title VII of the Civil Rights Act prohibits businesses from discriminating among HIRING ETHICAL PERSONNEL 4 job applicants based on the person?s race, color, religion, gender, or national origin (Collins,

 

2012, p.78).

 

Personality traits are a key factor to the hiring of ethical people. Personality tests offer a

 

broad psychological understanding of a job candidate and can identify characteristic associated

 

with ethical or unethical behaviors (Collins, 2012, p.87). People with the personality trait

 

Conscientiousness have high regards in ethics. Highly conscientious people tend to do things

 

better than the rest of us and they also follow rules (Bear, 2014). Organizational Citizenship

 

Behavior refers to work-related helping behaviors that go beyond normal job requirements

 

(Collins, 2012, p. 89). People who score high in this personality trait tend to have good customer

 

service and ethical performance values. Social Dominance Orientation and bullying is

 

personality traits that can be detrimental to any work environment.

 

A Code of Ethics and a Code of Conduct are tools that can help to recruit and keep ethical

 

personnel in an organization. A ?Code of Conduct? and a ?Code of Ethics? can be mistakenly

 

confused as the same thing. They are two unique documents. A Code of Ethics describes broad

 

ethical aspirations, while a Code of Ethics describes acceptable behaviors for specific situations

 

(Collins, 2012, p. 107). Both documents can help to keep ethical behaviors at the forefront of an

 

organization.

 

A Code of Ethics should express ideals that reflect the organizations moral compass. It

 

should be written as simple and concise as possible so that it is easy to follow and it should

 

inspire employees to do the right things. The code should be created by leadership with all

 

employees taken into consideration along with customers. The Code of Ethics should project a

 

positive message like ?honesty is a grate quality? instead of ?lying is strictly prohibited?. A

 

Code of Ethics serves as a constant reminder, particularly when leadership is not present, and HIRING ETHICAL PERSONNEL 5 should send a positive message to customers, suppliers, as well as employees (Collins, 2012, p.

 

115). Mission Statements and Vision Statements combine with an Ethical Code can align an

 

organizations goal with its ethical expectations.

 

A Code of Conduct expands on the moral principles embodied in a Code of Ethics

 

(Collins, 2012, p. 120). A Code of Conduct should be in accordance with the law. Leadership

 

should approve of the Code of Conduct at all levels and departments of the organization. The

 

military employs a Code of Conduct that uses six articles to lay out how service members should

 

conduct themselves if captured as a prisoner of war. Two problem areas organizations can find

 

relevant to use a Code of Conduct is the acceptance of gifts and the use of email (Collins, 2012,

 

p. 121). A Code of Conduct is a key tool to protect organizations and employees alike from

 

suffering repercussions during an unethical situation.

 

The key principles and tools explained in chapters three and four of Business Ethics can

 

help organizations in the recruiting and keeping of ethical personnel. This essay takes parts of the

 

chapters above to highlight how to hire ethical personnel. It is important that an organization

 

takes into consideration legal aspects and personality traits while considering potential new

 

employees. Also a strong Code of Ethics accompanied by a Code of Conduct will set a

 

foundation of good ethical behavior throughout the organization. A culmination of these

 

principles and tools along with the others listed in chapters three and four of business Ethics are

 

key to hiring ethical personnel. 6 HIRING ETHICAL PERSONNEL References
