7 Dark Sides of Work
Profit before people, the community or the environment
Putting profit before people, the community or the environment does a lot of damage. It damages your team, your customers and the planet. This focus can encourage unethical practices in the pursuit of making money without thought, care, respect or consideration of the implications.
If you don’t take care of your employees, they won’t take care of your customers.
Irreparable harm is often caused when profit comes before the community and the environment. It also leads to corners being cut because the priority is profit, without concern for health and welfare.
Some of the worst cases of this occurring are:
- Johnson & Johnson asbestos contaminated baby powder
- the destruction of a 46,000 year old Aboriginal site in Juukan Gorge to expand a mine and
- the continual release of oil in our oceans.
People vote with their buying power and stop supporting organisations that harm others.
