Ethics, ethics, ethics, people!

Intel fires 250 employees in India

From the above article –

Intel Technologies India has sent out scores of employees — some say it could be as high as 250 — over the past few months following an audit and investigation of allowance claims made by employees in recent years.

We have already heard enough of frauds in BPO, haven’t we?

It’s high time we took care of this “Chalta hai” attitude in our behaviour at work. Inflating bills, making medical claims for something that never happened etc. are so ingrained in our lives, that most of the people would never have thought about it being illegal and unethical. And the lax days of government jobs never checked that either. But who is ready to take those costs now, in this increasingly free market?

And if we are betting so much on things like FDI and MNCs moving operations here for the future of our economy, we better make sure they can do business here.

Ethical considerations stand beyond all these reasonings. But they have always been there. And if they did not work then, I do not know what to say about them now. But now we have more “worldly” reasons as well. Shall we wake up to the calls of time?

  1. Hey Jaya:

    This is me! I found you on google -> blogspot -> wordpress. What is so special about this blog, however? I found blogspot usually better than any other blogger.

    Btw, I have also released a website on classical sanskrit poetry, so you can have some fun there. Do remember to pay a visit. I also need some timid-bit of javascript in my page — in case you know how to work it out. (comment box etc.). So, if you want to join stutimandal team, feel free to 🙂

    keep in touch, you have my Gmail id out of this reply business.
