“Ethics has influence over the decisions we make and the actions we take, from our personal lives to our professional careers, and beyond”. (SCU, 2019) Throughout the course I have learned how to observe more of the inner workings of business. My focus has always been working in the medical field, this class has allowed me to take a step back and want to take a closer look at the company I work for. I can appreciate the difference between a job and a company whose vision aligns with my own. Understanding Corporate Social Responsibility, I consider the events and activities the hospital promotes and contributes to. I am also able to question how the hospital is visualized by the community. “When businesses give back, they not only contribute to the common good, they engage with their communities in meaningful ways, build morale among employees, and create positive regard for the business.”(SCU, 2019) I am also able to implement or play a more effective role in the action plan, or in my case, the treatment plan. Our most recent discussion of a Collectivist vs. Individualistic culture has encouraged me to evaluate how I personally have an individualistic mentality but as I care for each patient, I am participating in a larger collective to bettering the lives of our community.
