Just Take Care of Your People
This exercise is to examine the ethical values displayed in various organizations, and view such in light of Scripture, the course text, and scholarly research. For this assignment, write a 450–500-word paper that presents an analysis of the assigned case study from Hess & Cameron (more info is provided below under additional instructions). The paper must not summarize the article; instead, it will analyze that company’s values approach in light of Biblical truths and outside research. Support your assertions with at least three scholarly resources that have been published within the last 3 years, in addition to, the course text, and Scripture. The paper must be in current APA format (6th edition) and must include a reference page.
Chapter 1 of Hess & Cameron, Leading with Values (2006) begins with an introduction to ethical decision making and also explores the Christian’s involvement in ethical business. With this in mind, read chapter 1 from Hess & Cameron (uploaded) as they explored ethical culture at the Synovus Financial Corporation. The phrase they use, “just take care of your people,” is value-laden, and should resonate with the Believer in business. For this paper, answer the following questions:
1. How well did the Synovus Financial Corporation “take care of their people”? What role did the Synovus Financial Corporation’s leadership play in shaping their culture?
2. What biblical connections can be made to the values displayed by the Synovus Financial Corporation? Are these values discussed in current business/organizational literature?
The textbook is:
