Ethical issues in different organization

By Junaid Tahir
A friend of mine was very nervous today because he wasn't  dealt nicely by his manager. The error on his part was that he included another colleague in a specific email correspondence whom his manager didn't want him to. This lead me pondering over 'Professional Maturity' & 'Ethical Issues in different Organizations' hence I started re-calling my not so long 10 years professional career to compile the list of issues:

1-    Wrong Resource selection (wrong person for the right job) and dropping/ignoring the right one.
2-   Favoritism (Nationalism / Languagism)
3-   No Appreciation & Encouragement
4-   Back biting & Leg pulling
5-   Gossips
6-   Illogical Promotion
7-   Non-uniform task assignment to employee.
8-   Mismanagement in Training & Skill polishing
9-   Rough and tough behavior by managers in case of mistakes.

Here is some recommendations which need to be implemented for the corrective and preventive remedies:
 this article written by Junaid (mjunaidtahir at gmail dot com) feel free to comment.
-      Ethical help lines should be available in companies. The process has to be completely neutral & private.
-      Managerial level audits should be done by neutral staff in order to ensure that staff is treated neutrally and irrespective of favoritism.
-      Mature employees should keep 'sniffing' the bad air in office in terms of gossips  & backbiting and report to the relevant management for corrective and preventive measures.
-      Reward & talent recognition system needs to be transparent.
-      Promotions to be done based on actual Talent.
