· As a manager, explain the steps you would have taken or did take to address the described unethical behavior. What methods or techniques could have been used to both detect and mitigate the described situation?
· As a manager, propose what actions you could take to help prevent situations of unethical or fraudulent behavior in managerial accounting.
As a manager, I would have been concerned about why an employee felt the way they felt. I would have apologized for making them feel that way because realistically you can’t decide how you made someone feel. You must listen, understand, reflect, respond, and take accountability. As a manager, you must be committed to your team and clients/customers to hold yourself accountable and trustworthy. From my own experience when I voice my concern and my feelings, I love to feel heard and respected. As a manager I would ensure my employees feel safe, comfortable, trusted, and valued to avoid unethical behaviors. Follow and lead employees by example to ensure company guidelines and policies are being met. Building a professional relationship with employees and customers allows honesty and vulnerability. To behave ethically and without being fraudulent you must analyze information and behavior closely and properly.
