The Divine Word University (DWU) business students were told to abide to school ethics because it will prepare them to work with integrity in the market place after completing their studies.
The branchless manager of BSP in Madang Samuel Ray made the statement at the 14th Annual Business Ethics Symposium Program held in Divine Word University last Friday.
“Ethics is not the product of what I study in school, in the Bank; awareness that I conduct what keep me going on is what I develop within me,” he said.
He told the students there are three qualities any organisations are looking for in university graduates, integrity, intelligence and full of energy and passion.
“If you don’t have the first one the other two will kill you.
“Integrity is the cornerstone of a solid and positive reputation. Integrity are based on trust, honesty, sincerity moral standards and principles.
“As a manager I uphold principles that BSP has in place and that are what they expect from me to do.”
In fact it is evident in BSP branches in PNG there are some people with good qualification but no integrity and they become liabilities in BSP.
A person with integrity will work with honesty, faithfulness and righteousness and there is no room for wantok system.
Manager Ray said Integrity is your own moral standards that you develop inside of you is not what you get outside.
Quality of services given to customers has to be fair and not favoring wantoks to be served first than others.
This symposium is included as as one of the major event in the University Calendar.
Purpose of the symposium is to promoting collaborative learning through connecting with people in various business institutions to instill to business students must uphold business ethics when going out to work in every business spectrum.
