What role does social responsibility play in the development of a new product or service? What types of ethical questions must you consider when introducing a new product or service?
Social responsibility plays a very important role in the development of a product or new service within a company or business mainly because it focuses around the better part of the aspects of the business. Within the marketing business the social responsibility by increasing the customer expectations, having a tighter government, the legislation and pressure of marketing within the business, or evolving employee goals and ambitions within the company. When a business introduces a new product or service it must be done carefully to avoid the detriment to society and protect the rights of everyone that is involved with the planning and implementation of the product or service. Ethics also plays a role when introducing a new product or service for a business and also includes the consumer as well. Employee’s should be held responsible for any unethical behavior towards other employee’s or customer’s as well. Many times people do not stop and think about what they are saying or talking about in front of the customer. They do not think about the consequences of their actions or words. I have seen and heard it all being a server and let me say this that people are not shy about talking about their lives and what they do.
