A Time for Movements
We've written in the past about how to select an ethical software vendor, and our commitment to our customers. Every good vendor should have a code of ethics that center around customer success. Not only is it good for long term business, but it attracts team members who really care about the work they do, and the people they do it for.
Given their highly publicized failure and subsequent lawsuit with the state of Oregon, we don't think many people would describe Oracle as an ethical company. As it turns out their corporate ethical shortfall may be deeper and more profound than we previously thought with new accusations surfacing in the headlines.
Because of our increasing connectivity, we are in a brave new age where companies and people can no longer paint a picture of what they think people want them to be and instead must be known for who they are. For companies with a bold mission that intends to change the world there has never been a better time. This is a time for movements and a time for changing things that should be better.
