Physical privacy right issue
To maintain its integrity and business ethics, the organization has put into place various strategic measures to ensure that there is positive interaction among the employees themselves and also the relation between the employees and the external stakeholders. According to survey which have been carried out in the United States of America, most external business stakeholders such as suppliers, customers, shareholders, potential investors as well as partners judge the organization under scrutiny by the manner or way by which its employees conduct themselves while at work as well as when they are outside the organization. Basing on the same result, business organizations which were considered to promote a positive business ethics showed a positive correlation with the level of their generated revenue or income. In addition, such organization recorded a higher chance of continuity due to positive interlink with the external stakeholders (Rosen 28).
Being dominated by employees from both genders, Wal-Mart Inc has been keen on mitigating the issue of office romance which can be associated with sexuality. According to survey reports from the United States of America, office romance significantly affects negatively the overall performance of the organization. One of the physical privacy strategy adopted by the organization is reshuffling of employees from one working area to another. Persistence and long periods of interaction of both female and male employees may form a favourable environment for sexual relations and encounters to take place. In addition, Wal-Mart Inc employees are usually expected to dress in a certain code which is meant to uphold the organization’s ethics. Too much revealing dress codes are restricted in Wal-Mart inc. This can be considered to be a form of deontology since it is against the rules and ethics of the organization. Whether relations such as office romance result to successful marriages or not does not form part of the consideration in the process of classifying them to be ethically right or wrong. In simple terms, one should shun away office relationships and other work place sexual approaches (Rosen 28).
In Wal-Mart Inc, employees are also expected to act rationally and in a judgemental manner in order to create the best considerable utility level from any prevailing situation. Through this, the maximum utility level is generated from any given association or rational judgement. For instance, employees in Wal-Mart Inc are allowed to engage in informal groups which are usually considered to resemble a double edged element. Depending on the manner or technique through which such informal groups are managed, they can either be detrimental or beneficial to the organization. For instance, gossiping habits are usually dominant in informal groups and in some cases, gossip acts as channels of conveying information from one element to another. Such information may be constructive to the organization or destructive depending on the area in question (Fishman 2).
