- Q1: How can you tell, going into a new job, if your employer and/or co-workers practice ethical public relations?

- Q2: As a new pro, how would you approach a colleague or even a supervisor, who is exhibiting questionable ethical behavior?
- — Lauren K. Gray (@laurenkgray)Fri, Sep 19 2014 01:23:19A2: I always ask a mentor first, then it's usually best to confront and address head on. Clear and transparent. Don't wait. #PREthics
- — Laurent Lawrence (@LaurentLawrence)Fri, Sep 19 2014 01:23:28A2: Do so delicately. Questionable behavior should always be addressed, but as a New Pro, you may not have all the facts #PRethics
- — Samantha Koivisto (@ellipsisweaver)Fri, Sep 19 2014 01:27:08A2 Politely point out the ethical issue in question & ask if they've considered the effect of their actions. #PREthics
- — Derek DeVries (@derekdevries)Fri, Sep 19 2014 01:28:06A2: Giving the benefit of the doubt is important; there are a lot of people who have had no exposure to comm ethics theories #PREthics
- Q3: How can an ethical dilemma, such as lack of transparency, impact your career?
- — Andrea Gils (@andreagils)Fri, Sep 19 2014 01:29:34A3: Our approach to every case sets a precedent. Is this who you want to be? It also affects other's perceptions of your industry #PREthics
- — Sarah Brown, APR (@sarahsmbrown)Fri, Sep 19 2014 01:30:49A3: Your brand is your most valuable asset. It will follow you everywhere. No employer is worth compromising it. #PRethics
- — Mallory Richardson (@malrich10)Fri, Sep 19 2014 01:29:59A3: depends on how you handled it. If you did what was best for the company/org as a whole, you deff gained respect from peers #PREthics
- — Adrienne Wallace (@adriwall)Fri, Sep 19 2014 01:32:45A3: not only does it impact your career but the future of those practicing beside you as they are lumped into your shenanigans #PREthics
- Q4: A client asks you to post positive comments/reviews about his business using your personal account. If you disclose, is it ok?
- — Nancy Syzdek, APR (@NSyzdek)Fri, Sep 19 2014 01:40:32A4. I never take on clients that I wouldn't endorse. I'm happy to talk them up on my feeds, but disclose the biz rel clearly. #prethics
- Q5: Let’s talk about images and photos. You create a client Facebook post with a free image you find online. Must you give credit?
