After the Enron collapse and the financial meltdown in 2008, people have been questioning the ethics of business. Should CEO’s make as much money as they do? How many companies are involved with illegal transactions? I came across a blog that discussed business ethics and social responsibility. He highlighted that “it seems like lately all we hear about is the unethical acts of businesses.” And this is true. “Occupy Wall Street” and the Enron collapse back 2002 feed the media in raising awareness of unethical business. Dealing with “Occupy Wall Street,” Just because CEO’s have been making more money, doesn’t mean they’re being unethical. But when companies are unethical, someone should speak up. The blog mentioned people known as whistleblowers. They are people who are “encouraged” by companies to speak up when they see something going wrong in a company. Even though whistleblowers are needed to make sure a company doesn’t mess up, I don’t believe people are always “encouraged” to speak up. Enron is a perfect example. People were committing illegal activities and others who knew about it were either paid to keep their mouth shut or were afraid to speak up. It will be interesting to see in the future if whistleblowers help companies stay in check, or if we will see another Enron arise.
