The importance of ethics in business – Ethical business practices – Cadbury Schweppes #internet #home #business

Ethical business practices
A Cadbury Schweppes case study

Page 1: The importance of ethics in business

Ethics concern an individual’s moral judgements about right and wrong. Decisions taken within an organisation may be made by individuals or groups, but whoever makes them will be influenced by the culture of the company. The decision to behave ethically is a moral one; employees must decide what they think is the right course of action. This may involve rejecting the route that would lead to the biggest short-term profit.

Ethical behaviour and corporate social responsibility can bring significant benefits to a business. For example, they may:

  • attract customers to the firm’s products, thereby boosting sales and profits
  • make employees want to stay with the business, reduce labour turnover and therefore increase productivity
  • attract more employees wanting to work for the business, reduce recruitment costs and enable the company to get the most talented employees
  • attract investors and keep the company’s share price high, thereby protecting the business from takeover.

Unethical behaviour or a lack of corporate social responsibility, by comparison, may damage a firm’s reputation and make it less appealing to stakeholders. Profits could fall as a result.

Along with good corporate governance, ethical behaviour is an integral part of everything that Cadbury Schweppes does. Treating stakeholders fairly is seen as an essential part of the company’s success, as described here: ‘A creative and well managed corporate and social responsibility programme is in the best interests of all our stakeholders – not just our consumers – but also our shareowners, employees, customers, suppliers and other business partners who work together with us. *’

Ensuring that employees understand the company’s corporate values is achieved by the statement of ‘Our Business Principles’ which makes clear the behaviour it seeks from employees.

Cadbury Schweppes’ good practice was recognised when it was voted one of the ‘most admired companies for community and environmental responsibility’ by Management Today magazine in 2003. It was also ranked second in the Food and Drink sector in the Business in the Community ‘Per Cent Club’ Index of corporate giving for 2003, with an investment in the community of around 3of its UK pre tax profits.

The Bank of Japan Can’t Jump-Start Inflation #small #business #association

#business week


The Bank of Japan Can’t Jump-Start Inflation

On May 29 the Japanese government announced that the country’s consumer prices were unchanged in April from a year earlier, calling into question the power of the central bank’s effort to drive prices upward. The BOJ is acting a bit like a hedge fund, trying any investment to achieve its goal of raising inflation to 2 percent. It’s snapping up not only government bonds but also exchange traded funds, corporate bonds, real estate investment trusts, and venture capital loans—anything to put more money into lenders’ and investors’ hands so they can lend and invest more. “The BOJ deserves the most aggressive award among central banks,” says Yasuhiro Takahashi, a senior economist at Nomura Securities.

The latest consumer price report underscores the difficulty of the central bank’s task. BOJ Governor Haruhiko Kuroda doubled down last October and expanded his policy, formally known as quantitative and qualitative monetary easing. The central bank pledged to raise the monetary base from 60 trillion yen ($482 billion) a year to 80 trillion yen to give banks more money to lend.

The heroic effort has driven the Nikkei 225 Stock Average to a 15-year high and the yen down to almost a 12-year low against the dollar. Although that’s delighted stock investors and big exporters such as Toyota Motor and Shiseido, it hasn’t moved the needle on overall growth or inflation. A majority of 36 economists surveyed by Bloomberg see the BOJ beefing up its program by late October, when it’s expected to update its inflation forecast. If that’s less than 2 percent, the bank will pile on extra stimulus.

Nomura predicts the central bank will switch its focus from bonds to stock purchases next spring, betting a bull market might more effectively stimulate consumer spending. The brokerage sees the BOJ doubling its ETF purchases, to 6 trillion yen, while announcing plans to taper its bond purchases.

Kuroda has said that the plunge in oil prices in the short term delayed progress on generating inflation and that rising wages will engender growth, consumer spending, and higher prices. “It’s really too early to say Kuroda’s easing didn’t work,” says Takahiro Sekido, a former BOJ official who’s now a strategist at Bank of Tokyo-Mitsubishi UFJ.

Japan faces structural challenges, given its aging, shrinking population and its debt burden, the biggest in the developed world. “The BOJ’s policy has been and must be more ambitious,” says former Fed Vice Chairman Donald Kohn, now at the Brookings Institution. “It’s not going to be easy to break expectations [of deflation] that have been entrenched over the decades.”

Fiscal conservatives question the BOJ’s bond-buying, which soaks up about 90 percent of all new government bonds issued to keep long-term rates low. If long-term rates returned to their historical average of 3 percent, from 0.4 percent now, the higher interest payments would push the budget deficit from 8.5 percent to 13 percent of gross domestic product, according to the Organisation of Economic Co-operation and Development. “The BOJ is approaching its limit in bond purchases,” says Nomura’s Takahashi.

Kuroda continues to enjoy the steadfast support of Prime Minister Shinzo Abe, who picked him to run the BOJ in 2013. Abe, though, has so far failed to deliver on the promised labor, tax, and regulatory reforms that economists say are needed to get Japan back on track. Monetary firepower alone won’t revitalize the economy.

The bottom line: If long-term rates return to a more normal 3 percent, Japan’s budget deficit could rise to 13 percent of GDP.

How do I determine if the name I want to use is available?

The Division of Corporations is required by statute to reject for use any corporate, limited partnership, or limited liability company name that is not “distinguishable” from existing names on file. The only avenue to determine whether a name is available for a corporation, limited partnership or limited liability company is to make a name availability inquiry. The Corporation and Business Entity Database online search is intended for status inquiries of entities already on file with the Department of State. Customers are cautioned to avoid interpreting database search information as an indication that a name is or is not available for use.

The records of the Division of Corporations may be searched for availability of name by submitting a written request to the Department of State, Division of Corporations, One Commerce Plaza, 99 Washington Avenue, Albany, NY 12231. The written inquiry should state that you wish to determine the availability of a name and list the name or names to be searched.

Although it is not required, it is recommended that a copy of the name availability response be attached to the document you are submitting for filing.

A finding that the name is available is not an approval of the name by the Department of State and is not a determination that the proposed name satisfies any particular requirement of law. No expenditure or other commitment should be made in reliance upon the availability of a name.

Pursuant to Section 96 of the New York State Executive Law, the fee for searching the records for availability of name is $5 per name submitted. Please note that the Department’s determination regarding the availability of a name applies only to the date and time that the name search was completed. Requests for name availability cannot be handled by telephone.

How Can We Help?

The Small Business Association of Australia (SBAA), understands how challenging it is to start your own business. This is one of the things that continues to motivate us to provide support and assistance to owners of small and medium enterprises or SMEs to help them succeed in their chosen endeavour.

The Small Business Association of Australia is one of the fastest growing and widely recognised organisations in the country specialising in supporting and advocating for the SME. We firmly believe that SMEs are making significant contributions to the growth of the national economy and are a vital component of Australia’s future. We continually see that owners of small and medium-sized businesses are not receiving the support and recognition they deserve, so we have taken up the challenge to help them in every way we can.

Setting up a small business in Australia is challenging at best, but with the assistance of SBAA, SMEs can grow and secure their future.

Better educate business owners.

We believe that education and knowledge are key ingredients of a successful business, so apart from organising networking events, we also host educational events and learning programs for our members. We provide various learning resources and tools to help members enrich their knowledge of running a successful enterprise.

Connect and Establish Strong Working Relationships with Like-Minded People.

SBAA regularly organise networking events that will enable members to connect and foster relationships with other business owners on a local, national, and international level.

Be Heard

SBAA serves as the “voice” of SMEs by expressing their concerns to the government. We also seek the assistance of key stakeholders on their behalf to encourage policymakers to create economic policies that will benefit and help SMEs. The launch of the SBAA Think Tank focuses on the fields of research, education, policy, and practice for small business in Australia.
