The Globe and Mail: WORKPLACE ETHICS 101

The Globe and Mail: WORKPLACE ETHICS 101:

"Last week's question
You start a new job where you have the discretion to choose the charity to which your company donates. The charity with which your company has had a long association, however, contravenes your political beliefs, but the charity's budget assumes your company's donation and many recipients of its services would lose out if you stop the practice. What do you do?
Our choice
Corporate donations have too often been made on the basis of the personal beliefs of the person in charge. Decisions should not be influenced by whether or not the marketing department thinks sailing is trendy, the CEO has a child with a disease, the founder loved her alma mater or an employee with a new job has different political beliefs than her predecessor."
