What Vantage Point to Take When Consulting with Your Consumers

By Henry Melton Foster

Ethics are defined as an individual’s moral judgments between right and wrong. The decisions made within an organization may be made by either individuals or groups, but whoever makes them will be influenced by the culture and will of the company. Many businesses can gain a bad reputation just being in business. To the casual observer, businesses are interested solely in making money and that is the bottom line. This is the most common view of capitalism. Face it. There are plenty of examples of such, but it is the manner which businesses conduct their day to day affairs, work with their customers and provide the very best service that they can is what proves them of being ethically minded.

Business ethics can make or break your company. Sound business practices are key to long-term success. How do you know if you are making sound decisions? Read the rest of this article and ask yourself if you are doing everything with honor and integrity.

Having great business practices and solid ethics leads to long-term success. It’s plain and simple. No matter if you are a mail carrier, consultant, or the head of a giant corporation, you should ask yourself if others are open to trust you and your business dealings from the get-go. Your responsibility isn’t just to yourself. It is also to the company you represent and the associates in and around it.

There are many examples of shady business practices. Scams and companies with horrible reviews are prevalent throughout the internet and on the show 20/20. Search for the term ‘scam’ and you can quickly be disappointed at the state of business today. Outsourcing functions or entire departments overseas, cheap sweatshop labor, extortion, etc are all functions of poor business ethics. Although companies that do this may see a short upswing in their financial reports, the loss of customers will lead to continued diminishing returns. Vantage Point Consulting is an outsourced company, but is located in the same country as the clients the company serves. So, you could actually term this just simply ‘sourcing.’

One of the cornerstones of long-term success in business is in the responsibility to your customers, your shareholders, and the community. Everyone you shake hands with should be treated with the utmost respect and common courtesies. Although the economic downturn has been in the forefront of a lot of people’s business decisions, maintaining great relationships and never short-changing anyone associated with your business will lead to long-term success. Philanthropic efforts can help with this. Vantage Point Consulting often reaches out to the local Columbus, OH community to lend a helping hand. The company doesn’t do this for press. It does it as a byproduct of its ethical foundation.

Ethics in the hiring process is crucial. Another challenge in business ethics is recruiting workers without regard to sex, age or ethnic background. Vantage Point Consulting’s training courses show us that a company operating ethically usually attempts to share power and leadership through training programs. To give the employees the right tools is to solve dilemmas on the job.

Vantage Point Consulting, Columbus OH is but one of many companies that have the integrity to stand by their word and honor their agreements but also show us how to be better and show that your handshake and your promise is worth its weight in gold. As a shining example of good solid business ethics we can all obtain the very goals we strive for without compromising our reputation or the respect our clients and customers deemed us worthy.
