Companies, CEOs, Politics/Religion - October 28th 2013, 05:23 PM

So here is something that I have thought about before back when the Chick-Fil-A issues were going on along with the fact that as an atheist, I work at a Catholic hospital and now I saw the jelly beans post in Current Events. So do you think that you should work with a company that you would agree with 100% including managers?

Also, what do you think that the people who work at the companies where people boycott them actually think? I think most concern themselves with just getting a paycheck. I don't think all the time about what my big boss does or what they support. I can't even name them let alone really care if they are indeed Catholic.

I've met the chief people in my division once and I was busy helping to get a STEMI out the door to one of the cath labs.

I think it's ridiculous for people to boycott things based on the owner's/whatever's personal ethics. The majority of these ethics don't belong in the workplace, and shouldn't be discussed, but if they are, I don't think its a reason to avoid it.

I've always thought it was ridiculous. I go to Chick-fil-a because I like their chicken. Not because I agree with the founders ethics. I don't see why it should be different with workers. I also think it's the employees responsibility to read up on the company they're applying for. If they disagree with something then don't apply. No ones forcing you to work there. You should research a company before applying there anyways to keep from giving that company turnover if you decide it's not for you.

Problem with owner/founder/CEO personal beliefs and ethics is that they more often than not transcend into corporate culture. Not to the extent that employees tend to pick up the same beliefs and run with them, but the policies and governance of a corporate is often influenced by that culture, which (if the theory is correct) is transcended from the personal beliefs and ethics of upper management. That would be a perfectly good reason to boycott a company; it's an entirely different scenario if a person believes that the personal beliefs of a company and its corporate management are shared by entry level and customer-orientated staff. That would be absurd.

Because in the end, it doesn't even matter.
