You will be required to interview a business manager of a major corporation operating in the LA area. Let the interviewee know that you are taking a class related to Business Responsibilities in Society and that you are required to interview a business manager to find out some of the challenges corporations face and strategies companies use to meet these challenges. You are specifically interested in the Business Environment and Business Ethics.
You are to type a summary of the interview—not a list of questions and answers (limit 2 pages single spaced). In addition to summarizing the information you learned from the interview, you should relate it to the topics we discussed in class. Your summary should include the following:
- Tell about at least two challenges that the business faces and the approaches the company uses to address those challenges.
- State your opinion about the company’s response to its challenges. How would you evaluate the effectiveness of the company’s efforts to address these issues? What additional recommendations could you make regarding these issues?
- What ethical issues must the company address? How are they addressing these issues?
- Using one or more of the ethical principles discussed in class (virtue, utilitarian, justice, rights), how would you evaluate the effectiveness of the company in addressing their ethical issues?
