“Ethical” business practices

Stated policy of the company (boldly displayed across the office):

“We do not support any unethical and unfair practices while pursuing our business interests. Action will be taken against any employee
found to have indulged in an unethical or unfair practice in pursuit of the company’s business objectives.”

Practiced policy of the company (not stated or displayed anywhere) :

“We do not support any unethical and unfair practices while pursuing our business interests, after they (the unethical and unfair practices) are discovered and brought out in the open. Till such time, we will gladly turn a blind eye to any unfair or unethical practice that we believe will be profitable for the company and there is no risk of this knowledge (of unethical and unfair practices being followed) being traced to the propagators of this policy (read – senior management). If usage of such practices does get discovered and brought out into the open, we will, without compunction, act speedily in the best interest of the company, and blame it as a wanton act of deception, fuelled  by personal  greed, on part of some employee low down in the food-chain.

    • Looks like I never responded to this comment. Just realised when I was reviewing the history for an article I am writing for a book. Sorry about that Hitesh. And thanks a ton for being one of the early visitors.

  1. Great blog! Do you have any hints for aspiring writers? I’m hoping to start my own blog soon but I’m a little lost on everything. Would you advise starting with a free platform like WordPress or go for a paid option? There are so many choices out there that I’m completely overwhelmed .. Any recommendations? Thank you!

    • Hi,
      Being an aspiring writer myself, I am hesitant in offering advice. I chose WordPress because it seemed like an easy, available and accessible option. The main challenge I am facing with the Blog is getting people to access it and read it. A paid platform might make that part easier.
