Creating an Ethical Plan

As a company head (CEO, etc.), you have decided to create a new ethical plan for your company. Develop your own set of procedures that you would use to handle unethical issues. Provide a step-by-step procedure that will be followed from the moment an unethical situation is noticed (by an employee, supervisor, etc.) to resolution. In a 6-8 slide Power Point Presentation, you will use the following format (exactly):

Title Slide

Organizational Overview Slide(s)
Ø What is ethically expected in general?
Ø Who makes the ethical decisions in your company?
Do not go into too much detail in this first section - this is just a general overview.

Your Ethical Plan
Ø Create a Flowchart that reflects your actual plan, along with an explanation (how your plan works & why it works). If an employee notices an unethical situation, what should he/she do? Once it is reported, what happens next? Your flowchart should include a step-by-step plan from problem to resolution.

Breaking It Down For Employees
Ø Implementation of your new plan (Gradual or all at once? Will it be implemented by upper management or by lower management?)
Ø Not everyone easily adjusts to change. How will you handle the various reactions of your employees? (Workshops for adjustment? Surveys?)
Ø Realistic potential effects (positive & negative) that this will have on the organization as a whole (Short-term effects? Long-term effects?)

Note: This assignment will be completed as a 6-8 slide Power Point presentation. Do not go over 8 slides. Otherwise, points will be deducted.
