Administrative Ethics in the workplace Name Institution/Affiliation Companies often priorities the interest of shareholders so that to increase the market share prices thus to some extent the interests of the general public are disregarded. It significant to recognize that the element of upholding ethics while on the job can prove to be a quite demanding task. As a result according to Greenfield et al. (2008) so that to maintain and abide by ethical standards it is imperative that the parties involved acknowledge where their loyalties lie. For instance individuals should appreciate the fact that even though their employer is the company they are under the supervision of the head of a department. It is not clear what dictates the ethical values in workplaces; thus most of the time individuals rely on their conscience as well as other reference material as a guide on how to make informed decisions. Besides faced with unethical dilemma it is important to act as per the requirement and the guidelines provided in the Code of Ethics; as such individuals will be able to identify the contentious issues as well as those who will be affected by certain decisions. Administrators are required to remain professional while dispensing their duties for that reason they have to adopt ethical decision making so that to avoid a situational crisis.
