The one ethical issue that found with the Huffman Trucking Company is that 100% of the company’s Information Software Systems are outsourced to countries outside of the United States. This poses to be an ethical issue because it seems contradictory because the company is owned by an American and was started in the United States and all Of its business is conducted inside of the united States.
By outsourcing parts of the business, this company that is American owned seems to be capable of cutting corners to save money on staffing its departments. In an effort to save money by outsourcing, the Huffman Trucking Company may lose the loyalty of its employees and its customers. Its employees may begin to feel as though their current positions within the company are not stable positions and could be at take of being outsourced as well. With that fear may come a decrease in trust of their employer; the Huffman Trucking Company.
When employee ratings are low, productivity decreases and can have an effect on the company on a larger scale. Employees may be come unproductive and as a result of poor customer service, sales decrease and put the company in jeopardy. A once large and long standing company will crumble if the trust of its employees is lost. It may be wise for the business to reconsider outsourcing an entire department and giving away jobs that are greatly needed here in the United States.
