Based on the information provided; Steven have been in the firm since college and he is one of the earliest employees in the organization who has been working in it for several years. He knows all the details in the companySteven works for a bureaucratic organizationKristin who joined the team is known to have a no-nonsense attitudeWhen asked about anything that they wanted to share, Steven said that few people are favored for promotions and to work overtime based on who they like and not based on the quality of the workKristin called Steven to check the facts, and to know who are the culprits.Kristin ordered Steven to give out the names. Otherwise, steven would face dire consequences. Ethical issues The ethical issue, in this case is, Kristin forcing Steven to bring out the names of the managers who are not working in the best interests of the company.And if Steven would not reveal those names, she would assume that Steven was a part of the problemDisclosing the names of the managers is not a right thing to do, which can, in fact, be considered unethical.Primary stakeholders Steven, Kristin, Managers, and other staffThe company has a direct effect on Kristin, and Kristin has got an immediate effect on the team, managers and Steven. In other words, Kristin is responsible for everything that happens within the organization. Moreover, managers are accountable for any delinquency in the organization.Possible alternatives and ethics of each alternativeUtilitarian Perspective      According to Chonko(n.d.)” to a utilitarian, the choice that yields the greatest benefit to the most people is the one that is ethically correct.” However, this perspective have some limitations. It relies on personal experience to predict best outcomes, which may become very subjective, unfair and uncertain. “Uncertainty can lead to unexpected results making the utilitarian decision maker appear unethical as time passes, as the choice made did not benefit the most people as predicted.”Chonko(n.d.). 2. The Rights Perspective       “In ethical theories based on rights, the rights established by a society are protected and given the highest priority.”Chonko(n.d.). On the other hand, “A major complication of this theory on a larger scale is that one must decipher what the characteristics of a right are in a society. The society has to determine what rights it wants to uphold and give to its citizens. In order for a society to determine what rights it wants to enact, it must decide what the society’s goals and ethical priorities are. Therefore, in order for the rights theory to be useful, it must be used in conjunction with another ethical theory that will consistently explain the goals of the society.”Chonko(n.d.). 3. The Justice Perspective      “The justice ethical principle states that decision makers should focus on actions that are fair to those involved. This means that ethical decisions should be consistent with the ethical theory unless extenuating circumstances that can be justified exist in the case.”Chonko(n.d.). This perspective, like the other perspectives, have its limitations as well. The main limitation of this perspective is that it has a flaw. “One flaw is that there is no rationale or logical basis for deciding an individual’s duties.”Chonko(n.d.)Conclusion and recommendation      Steven should tell the names of the managers to Kristie and tell her to keep the matter confidential. Not tell Kristie about the actual issue, rather tell her that he was not serious about what he was saying and there is nothing to worry about, and that is not an issue at all.He can also add up saying that, such things happened earlier, but now it is no longer happening and that, he just wants to give her a fair idea of how things operate there Steven should probably not blow out the whistle this early. Everything has a particular time, and Steven has to adhere to that timing. Whistle-blowing this early can lead Steven to unnecessary problems. Instead, Steven could tell Kristie that things were improving from few days and everybody was doing well in their respective jobs. Being a part of the team, Steven wanted to bring this to her notice just for her information, and there is no need to reprimand anybody now, as everybody is working fine, without any issues.
