Business Research Ethics
Business research is essential to the success of any organization. With business research businesses can improve their services and communications among the staff and with customers. Conducting research can include multiple things such as customer surveys, development research and interpersonal communication research. All of these things tied together create a backbone for an organization to improve their services. With the information that they may get from for example, customer surveys, they could change something that the customer may have been complaining about. This could in turn generate more financial activity well good financial activity for the company. In this paper I have researched an article in which business research was not conducted properly and thus the code of ethics of business research was broken. Unethical behavior may not always be on purpose. What I mean by this is, a company may be looking out for the best interest of an organization but instead do things the wrong way. If something is done incorrectly even though it generates funds for the company, it's still incorrect, that doesn't change. This is sometimes seen as the “dark side” of business research or business ethics. What business managers don't realize when conducting unethical behavior within a company, is that it is destructive to the organization. Maybe not in the present, but in the future, unethical behavior could bring dire consequences to everyone involved, and even those that weren't directly involved. Unethical behavior and research shows weakness among the management. It shows that management or whoever is conducting this behavior or unethical research, isn't strong enough to conduct their business with proper ethics, or just plain and simple, the right way.
