In the first group meeting, you shall give a brief biographical sketch of yourself to the other members. Each group member is to take notes, type them up and give them to the coordinator to hand in as part of the project, his/her summary of each group member’s biography (with names correctly spelled) in the written part of the assignment. NOTE: As part of this portion of the project, each person is to tell the group the most challenging ethical conflict or issue he/she has personally faced up to present time. REMEMBER, an ethical issue is not the loss of a girlfriend or boyfriend. Think of it in terms of Chapter 5 in your textbook and business-related ethical challenges. The group shall then compare all of the ethical issues presented by each group member and decide as a group whose issue presented is the most challenging and why.

The most challenging ethical conflict I have faced up to present time is an intern in a game development team. Our team leader is very dedicated and responsible. He has shown meticulous qualities in a series of commercial transactions, such as commercial negotiation, commercial contract formation, signing, and performance. He is respected by the company’s superiors and respected by our subordinates. He regards the moral quality of employees as the basic quality of employees and the minimum requirement for recruiting new employees.
Our team leader led us to develop a game. We have a colleague, whose brother was “be defeated” by other players in the online game during the entertainment participation in this game. He used his position to violate the rules of online games, and this caused many game participants to suffer economic losses and collectively complained to this colleague. However, our team leader did not punish the behavior of this colleague for various reasons. This incident also made other subordinates feel uncomfortable and thought that the team leader was deliberately favoring the colleague.
Then, the company’s selection of the annual work star requires us to participate in the voting, and our team leader has a strong ability to work and has naturally become one of the candidates. I know that the whole process of the development of the incident has fallen into a dilemma. At work, our team leader is serious and responsible. I think I should vote for him, but this incident made me feel that he lacked professional ethics. If I voted for him, does it mean that I also violated business ethics indirectly? Should I let the company executives know about this?
