Does the ambit and application of ethics vary per the rank and profile of an employee in the organization? For instance what would be an ethical take on the Amazon VP quitting over virus firings?

Leaders play such a critical role in setting the right ethical tone...if leaders aren't bought in, you won't get far with an ethics program in a company. It's really hard to comment about a particular employee or situation at a company like Amazon, there is often a lot more complexity to a story than what you read in the paper.

Agree with leadership buy-in and percolation downwards. Besides, Amazon was just an example, the point to ponder over is the means and modalities for a uniform application of ethical practices from the top to bottom rung of any organization. Employees should have a fair chance to question the system without worrying about repercussions.

Thanks for the response. Good to see leaders on the forum contributing on meaningful subjects.

How do you feel about leaving a company shortly after joining?

I've been told by people to not be loyal to companies & I've seen posts in forums where people have talked about leaving workplace 1, at workplace 2 for like 3 weeks, and already interviewing for workplace 3 (and the recruiter for workplace 3 doesn't even know that the person has left workplace 1). That feels a little disingenuous and...bad etiquette maybe? What do you think?

He was only at this company for 3mo. He's looking for a new job and trying to figure out: what does he say when interviewers ask him why he left? Thank you in advance!
