Discuss the elements necessary to support an organization’s transcultural ethics policy.
I understand how the leaders of google can be torn between what decision to make in regards to dealing with these other countries and their laws and right and Googles values. Our previous lesson covered the CSR pyramid and I believe this is a good situation to apply it. Starting from the top. What is Googles philanthropic values? What is their main priority or social responsibility to the world? How can they make those values profitable. (Dudovskiy,2012) Each country that google is branching out to have different definition of human rights and what that entails so that is when Google brain storm to establish a plan that will accommodate their values and also align with the host country views as will. What is Google willing to comprise? I think it was wise of them to pull their services in order to find a common ground. I understand there should be only one definition of human rights but that terms and what it means it not universal I believe taking as much time as needed to find that common ground is proper of Google. An example I have to support my decision is when you go over your grandmother house, your mom and dad may not let you drink soda but when you go over your grandmother house she lets you drink soda, but she does not let you drink it after 8 PM. Your parents finds out and stop letting you go over there until your grandmother agrees to stop giving you soda or to stop giving you soda after 5pm instead of 8.
For a company that is seeking to enter the global market I would suggest to seriously do your research. Begin business in small quantities, network with other companies involved in the same company to observe their business moves to see if that is the direction you would like to go in yourself. You can tell a lot about a company by its consumers sometimes(not all the times) but at least locally you will be able to assess the quality of service and product of you will receive from a company even thought your experience with a company may differ from another. You can listen for those key factors, for example ” i pay an extra $500 in order to get my shipment in next day” or “talk to such and such they owe me one”. Those can be considered red flags.
Based on What I have read on the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act, I hope I interpreted this properly, this imply that bribes are unlawful to foreign officials if it violates their offical positions. The reason why many companies outsource because it cheaper, so the cost of bribe seems like it would balance out the overall cost, a business would have to account for the cost of bribes on their balance sheet in a covert way in order to make it up in sales. These countries know business are thriving off of their backs, of course they would make it seem like a requirement to pay an extra”fee” for a more quality experience using their company.The article ” How Managers Should Respond When Bribes Ares Business As usual” that says instead of paying a bribe offer them a say in decision making because they want respect.(Montero 2018) I Agree with Mr. Martinez, that is a load of CRAP!!! Those people that want bribes do not want respect, they are greedy they want money! they know now a days everybody wants everything as fast as possible and they will capitalize off our needs. Just like Amazon we pay for shipping to get to us faster and sometimes I pay for regular shipping and still get my items in the same amount of time as if I paid for faster shipping. With technology taking over the world I think they will be at risk only once they become big like Google, Facebook, etc.. the more people that use the technology in other countries outside of America the more regulation that will need to be in place that the other governments will want to be involved and that is when the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act will come into play if I interpret it correctly.
