Abstract (Summary)

In Nevada, 300 Big-box store employees had distinct opinions regarding hiring practices, compensation, and equal employment opportunities. This study focused on the examination of the role of business ethics, an integral part of the business environment, as it pertains to hiring practices, compensation, and equal employment opportunities. The study examined how people within an organization use and practice business ethics in hiring and promotion decisions through the use of a mixed methods study. The study was conducted using a survey defined through a 7 point Likert scale to understand the respondent’s perceptions and experiences on ethical practices of the organization in hiring, compensation, and equal employment opportunities. Statistical analysis was used to analyze the data. The results demonstrate that there are distinct relationships between business ethics and business operations, suggesting that organizations should develop ethical practices and monitor ethical behavior to assure ethical practices, compensation, and equal employment opportunities. Furthermore, the results suggest that employee satisfaction is increased with improved business ethic practices. Therefore, it can be deduced that increased employee satisfaction can increase productivity, which can increase profit due to lower expenses incurred by the organization. This study may contribute to social change by demonstrating that business ethics is crucial and beneficial to the success of all organizations in a variety of ways, including employee morale.
