When I think about a mission statement concerning the business, or organization that I am doing business with it needs to state their position and what their ultimate goal is within the success of the business. I have been in the restaraunt business for quite some time now and I have learned a variety of things over those years. However, most of the business’s that I have worked for do not stand behind the mission statement that they have put in place. Furthermore, keeping track of the things that the mission statement provides like guidelines for the employee’s to follow, and guidelines for the management to follow as well. If the management is not setting the right example for the employee’s this would fall on the profits, and business the company has. Keeping the employee’s informed and interested in what the company is all about which will increase motivation within the company. Business’s develop mission statements will allow the business to create or avoid any unforseen problems that might occur now or in the future of the business.
In my opinion the mission statement is the pride of the company the goals and objectives that the business has set in place to assure them of success in the business world. Standing by the company’s mission statement and taking pride in the work that you do requires hard work and dedication to the company.
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.
