Step 1: Ethical Issues

One ethical issue in the case is whether to follow the broader view or narrow view of corporate social responsibility. The narrow view of a company’s corporate responsibility restrains an entity’s moral obligations to the shareholders and the corporation’s owner.

A broader view, on the other hand, extends the company’s social obligation to include all stakeholders and the surrounding environment where the corporation operates. This means that entities have other responsibilities in addition to generating profits (Gawu & Inusah, 2019). In this case, the narrow view is to consider only the legal considerations. According to Allen, it is perfectly….

Discuss five (5) ways that the Training Professional can make a valued contribution to the success of the company’s training function and training director. (40 points) (A 1½-page response is required).

Within the hierarchy of any given company, the training function can be a subset of the HR department, a different department, or a stand-alone unit. Because the training function plays such a vital role in the integration of learning and business strategies, it would be to the advantage of the HR manager and the company as a whole for the training director to report to the HR manager, or at least for the HR manager to be extremely familiar with the training department and its contributors and a major contributor in the training process.
