Many people lose their jobs based on their work ethics, not work competency or efficiency. Those work ethics are built entirely on the person's character. A person's character is the most important part of his/her personality.

Kilinc - 1Work Ethics Essay
Ali Kilinc – 900235909Mrs. Mandi SenaENG 191 – 3:30PM – 20424
In many ways, a man’s character defines everything about that man.Many important factors are considered when defining a person for who he is,but a person’s character is the most important factor. Character is also animportant factor in any sort of environment involving other people. Thisenvironment could be at home, around family members; at school, aroundteachers or other students; and especially at work, where interactions withmany people under a stressful environment can really bring out the true sideof a person. A person’s work ethics are built on his character. The foundationof good character is based on trustworthiness, integrity, and good morals.First, trustworthiness is an essential part of one’s character. Forexample, if an employer assigned an employee an important presentation tobe presented at the grand opening of a vital new retail chain
, and if theemployee failed to comply with the employers demands, the employeewould prove to be untrustworthy. Such behavior would prove to be highlydetrimental to the character of that worker. This is why trustworthiness isessential when judging the work ethics of a person.Second, when observing the character of a person, determiningwhether or not the person has integrity is
. If a person does not haveintegrity, then he would misbehave in a working environment. This person
 The work assigned would fit any job obligations the employee might have.

would disrespect fellow members in many ways because he could even lie tohimself, thinking that his actions are not against his or anyone else’s values.For example, if an employee working at a financial department found taxfraud, and he did not report it out of the fear of losing his job, this employeewould prove to lack integrity. If a tax audit would occur, he would lose his job, and risk going to jail. This is not the only matter to consider when judging one’s character; morals are also important.Finally, aperson’s morals are fundamental when defining his character.Especially in a working environment, a person must have fully understoodthe concept of morality. If not, this person would commit heinous acts andnot care about them, or even know about the horrendous nature of suchacts. This would be because the person’s morals would be wicked, abnormal,or simply non-existent. Furthermore, the person might choose to omit certaintasks in his day to day schedule, as in, purposely choose
to do them, orsimply over-look those tasks, thinking that they are irrelevant. For instance, if a volunteer is passing out food to the poor, and decides that he wanted piethat day, and he stole a few pies for himself thinking, “They’re free anyway,”he would prove to be an immoral person. This type of behavior, as well asthe aforementioned actions, is linked to the person’s character.Character is important to all people, all around the world. No matterwhat one does, one’s character comes out in the end result of their task. Thisis especially apparent in a working environment where the work ethics of aperson is almost always more important than the employee’s ability to do
