1. From an ethical standpoint, how would you evaluate the merits of Mr. Garbo employing Amber? Discuss.
Although the main reason Mr Garbo employed Amber is building more future business with Amber’s father company, but he made 3 mistakes:
1. He was wrong when giving Amber a boring occupation.
2. He was wrong when paying Amber much than she deserves
3. He was wrong when ignoring her fault
As we know that Amber definitely is not a stupid girl, if she was given a chance, she would promote herself to show what she could do. But because she knew the reason why Mr Garbo employed her was not base on her knowledge background, she became lazy and was not interested in working.
If Mr. Garbo keeps ignoring what Amber is ...view middle of the document...
By that way, she could change her colleagues’ mind, change the prejudice they had at the beginning.
Instead of being against the company’s regulation, she should follow it strictly and respect it. Taking longer break than others, coming late and leaving soon is not the right behaviors, that just prove she was not educated well. This is somehow has a bad impact on her father as Mr. Barbo might reason out Amber’s father is the same, unruly one.
Amber worked in accounting department and her works was not challenging but whenever she was assigned difficult jobs, she passed to others. She relies upon her father’s relationship, did not try her best to carry out her works even though it is in her ability.
Furthermore, when the head of department criticized her for her bad behaviors, she made full use of her father’s relationship to protect her, even threat and put pressure on her manager. She has to learn how to get along well with others and work in a team work if she really wants to work in that company longer and gain respect from others.
3. Do you feel that a firm should have policies regarding practices such as hiring people like Amber? Discuss.
Yes I do have feel that a firm should have policies regarding hiring people. It did not take long for the employees in the department to discover that she had been hired. When a difficult job was assigned to Amber, she normally got one of the other employees to do it. Implying that Mr.Garbo would be pleased with that person if he or she slapped her out. She developed a pattern of coming late, taking long lunch breaks, and leaving early. When the department manager attempted to reprimand her for those unorthodox activities, Amber would bring up the close relationship that her father had with the president of the firm. The department manager was at the end of his hope.
