Thu 12:00 PM to 1:00 PM
Topic: Disaster Mitigation


with Arash Azadegan, Associate Professor at Supply Chain Management Department of the Rutgers Business School

Supply management ethics? Is it still relevant for small business during COVID? Discussing the legal and professional expectations from supply managers in today's environment.

Supply managers are responsible for large sums of money. Even in small businesses, the amount spent on supplies, services and raw material can be target for scrutiny. How can small business buyers make sure that they are complying from a professional and corporate perspective so as to minimize risk of issues that can hurt their reputation and regulatory performance? With the advent of COVID, and government incentives to small businesses have only raised the topic of supplier ethics. In this session we explore what professional ethical behavior are expected from small business managers. We explore actions before, during and after negotiation with buyers and suppliers that may not be considered ethical. For instance, we will explore ""sharp practices"" by buyers. Examples of ethical dilemmas faced by buyers will be shared and assessed as part of the session.
