I am taking a business ethics class and we are talking about integrity. Of course, everyone has their opinion about ethics and integrity. In the class we are given scenarios and asked if we think the person is acting ethical or not.
Me being the type of person that i am, i like to explore the topic a little further and try to come up with a not-so-mainstream answer.
To start off with, i had to define integrity. Webster defines integrity as:1 completeness; wholeness, 2 unimpaired condition; soundness, 3 honesty, sincerity. I define integrity as doing the right thing.
I put forth the argument that a person can in fact break the law and still have integrity. Just because a person breaks the law or the rules, doesn't mean they are being unethical. Needless to say it sparked a lot of conversation. Some people just can't see the reality that is life.
