Seminar at Lahore School of Economics: 'Good ethics are good for business'
Lahore: Businesses today operate in an era of hyper competition and only businesses with ethical practices can flourish in the long run.

This was said at a seminar arranged by the graduating batch of Masters in Business Administration of the Lahore School of Economics (LSE) on Monday. The seminar was titled 'Ethics in Sales Management'.

Guest speakers at the seminar included Khawaja Ahmed Fraz from Reliance Insurance; Liaqat Ali Khan, EFU Insurance vice president and Imran Afzal, Nimir Chemicals marketing director. LSE Rector Dr Shahid Amjad Chaudhry and Dean Dr Sohail Zafar were present. Prof FA Fareedy of LSE also spoke on the occasion.

The seminar dealt with issues such as the development and expansion of businesses and organised social institutions. The speakers highlighted the importance of the former three, saying that they were imperative for Pakistan's development.

Mr Fraz spoke about the ignorance of the practice of insuring one's life, business and/or property in Pakistan. He said Pakistanis were not insurance minded and that they had to get rid of this attitude. He also talked about the importance of ethics in insurance, saying that insurance companies, their sales forces and customers needed to be ethical when dealing with the issue.

Mr Khan talked about the practice across the insurance sector on the grounds of business ethics. His presentation revolved mainly around what insurance was and how the Pakistani government had come to regulate it. He said that the law made it mandatory for several types of insurances. He gave car insurance as an example, saying that someone driving an un-insured car was breaking the law.

Mr Afzal educated the audience on safety standards across Pakistan's chemical industry and on what was being done and what else was needed to further improve it.

The speakers said corruption was widespread and accepted in Pakistani society as 'a normal way of life'. They said that corruption was complex and that there was no quick fix to it. They said that eradicating corruption from Pakistani society would take at least three to four generations and that the people's thought processes had to be shaped for such a turnaround.

They said that the reason behind corruption was the lack of financial security. "This can be resolved by insurance, banking and financial and capital markets developing and implementing an ethical code of conduct, thus promoting and providing financial security to people. If people are protected against untimely death and other unseen disasters, health care, security at old age and savings for children's education and marriages, their greed for illegal gratification will decrease considerably," they added.

They said that many people were of the view that business and ethics did not go together because adhering to ethical practices did not accrue profits. "However, real life examples have shown that business ethics do create high returns for companies," they added.

Prof Fareedy ended the seminar by saying, "Quality is highly dependent upon the inputs that one feeds into a business. For example, if inputs to a poultry farm are faulty, the produce that is chicken will also be faulty for consumer consumption. Ethical business practices have a crucial concern for business-to-business (B2B) selling businesses. Ensuring the highest conduct of corporate behaviour and instilling this in employees can translate into highly ethical practices, which businesses can look at as a core competency. Therefore, good ethics are good for business, he added.

Towards the end of the seminar MBA students presented two of their top case writings concerning ethics - which they had developed themselves to the audience followed by a prize distribution ceremony of those students whose case writings were amongst the top three. Daily Times
