Team C collaborative discussion "Ethics in Business Communication"
I have to admit I was a bit worried in the beginning when I reviewed the requirement for this assignment. Conducting research in regards to a topic that is not of my choosing and to be expected to collaborate in a team discussion can sometimes be hard. Especially when your team members are not present in body to work with. All forms of communication are being handled through, email, phone or even google chat. It has been an interesting but successful experience so far and I hope thought out the next three weeks it will continue to be a positive outcome.
After conducting research we all have chosen to collaborate on an article that was found by Sheira, called “Wal-Mart's Latest Ethics Controversy” (Gogoi, June) “An employee who scrupulously followed the company's own ethics guidelines may find herself out of a job.” (Gogoi, June). Lowry (new employee) with the communications department took upon herself to report another coworker whom was the vice president of the communication department for trading her stock based on insider information. The vice president Mrs. Williams had asked Lowry to copy some papers for her. The papers appeared to Lowry to be copies of stock reports in which later in the week Wal-Mart made an announcement that they are considering a buyout that is worth $15 billion. So Lowry starting thinking that maybe Williams was using this for her own benefit being she knew what the plan was due to being an insider. When Lowry was hired she had to attend a session that taught her how to look for unethical behavior and how important it is to report those issues/concerns immediately. So that is what Lowery did.
In our discussion we all agreed that it was unethical what Lowry did when handling this situation. We all agreed that Lowery could have handle the situation a bit more on the ethically by addressing her concern with Williams first before jumping making accusations. Just about all of us in the team have collaborated with one another throughout the week as agreed we would do. Lindsey Ballard on the other hand had only chimed in four times and mainly those comments were just on my postings. Out of those four posting Lindsey only had one reply that was fairly lengthy, the others were about two to four sentences. I felt she could have put forth the effort a little more in responding then just I agree to a comment that was posted by her colleagues. Omar and Sheira I think out did themselves with involvement throughout the week and making sure they commented over and beyond the requirement for this assignment I do believe. By Sunday they were discussing amongst each other on ways they can research to determine what ethical procedure Lowry could have taken before filing her report against Williams. I, myself felt I could have applied more in my input and quality of vocabulary when discussing the ethical behavior distorted between Lowry and her accusations she made against Williams. Also between Wal-Marts decision to dismiss Lowry after they made their determination that Williams did not violate Wal-Mart code of ethics policy. But being we had just a week to juggle other class assignments that require my attention, two jobs and a family I give myself a pat on the back that I participated as much as I did on this one assignment.
It was a pleasure working with Omar, Lindsey and Sheira this week and I look forward to our team discussion in the next three weeks to follow.
