    This film looks at three famous companies in the world of media and technology and explores the ethics of their approach to business.

    APPLE has amazing products, but they're made by people in China who work long hours for small wages. Some workers have even killed themselves: the "Foxconn Suicides". Apple now monitors its suppliers for compliance with its standards - but is this enough?

    NEWS CORP is a global media empire with famous brands like the Sun and Fox News.

    Multinational BAE Systems make everything from aircraft to missiles and big profits.They make big profits,create skilled jobs and use cutting edge technology. But is it in an immoral business?

    Originally formed from a merger of British aviation companies in the 1970s, BAE was originally called British Aerospace. Now it's ditched the British title and goes for global sales. 47% of its business comes from the US and 29% from the UK. The key objection critics make against BAE is that they're arming over 100 countries around the world. And in countries like Bahrain BAE's weapons are used to subdue pro-democracy demonstrations.

    It's also been accused of corruption in its business dealings. In 2004 the UK's Serious Fraud Office started investigating BAE for paying bribes to win contracts in Saudia Arabia. But the prime minister at the time Tony Blair closed the investigation down, saying Britain's "strategic interest" came first. In Tanzania, too, BAE was involved in a corruption scandal and even tried to withhold compensation payments it was ordered to pay to the country.

    BAE is praised for creating jobs - but critics claim the British tax payer is subsidising those jobs. Much of the money spent on research and development which benefits the arms industry comes from the public purse, too. Some say the money would be better spent on other areas, such as green technology. BAE has also been accused of being too close to the UK government, with former civil servants and ex-ministers regularly coming to work for them: the "revolving door syndrome". BAE's supporters say we need an arms industry to defend ourselves. Critics say making arms is immoral.

    This film looks at the ethics of three internationally known corporations. How responsible are they in terms of the environment, of our health and the way they treat the people who work for them?

    Primark is one of the most well known shops on our high streets. They sell cheap, fast fashion at low prices. But what does this mean for the people in poor countries who make the clothes? The pressure to be fast and cheap means low wages, overtime and even, it's been alleged, child labour. But, following protests and controversy, the company now claims it's cleaning up its act and taking ethics seriously.

    Big drug companies like Pfizer make products essential for the health of the world - and huge profits. But how ethical is their approach to business? The film tells stories of doctors being bribed, botched drug trials in developing world countries and the over-pricing of drugs people badly need but can't afford to buy.

    Since it almost went bust in 2008 the Royal Bank of Scotland has been mostly owned by the British government. But we have no say in the projects it finances. Many of these are environmentally controversial. They involve large scale fossil fuel operations, including get coal by mountaintop removal and drilling for oil in the Canadian tar sands. RBS has met objections and campaigns with "green wash" and refuses to change its ways.

    Multinational companies are aggressively marketing cigarettes to young people in developing countries - with devastating social costs.

    This film visits Indonesia where low taxes and lax laws have turned the country into the third largest market for tobacco products in the world. Targeted by the industry's relentless marketing, Indonesians start young and die young.

    "If I'd known I'd get this disease I would have quit a long time ago." Ujang has terminal lung cancer. At 45, he is the victim of a habit, which is killing millions in his country. Most Indonesians don't believe that smoking is bad for their health and the industry shamelessly cashes in on their ignorance.

    The marketing strategies of cigarette companies play a major role in a massive national habit. Among men, almost 70% light up every day. That's about 80 million smokers

    The behaviour of giant tobacco companies like Philip Morris and British American Tobacco are attacked as blatant breaches of corporate social responsibility.

    Sampoerna, one of Indonesia's big three tobacco giants, was bought in 2005 by the world's largest tobacco corporation, Philip Morris International, creators of Marlboro and the Marlboro Man.

    Over the years, Sampoerna's products could be credited with millions of premature deaths.

    "Indonesia is a rogue state when it comes to tobacco control", claims David Stanford of Indonesia's Consumers Federation. ""Philip Morris is one of the most brilliant marketers in the world.

    In a place like Indonesia what they're doing is they're making tobacco use a form of Western independence and growth."

    Internal Philip Morris documents reveal the company's strategy. They want to entice young Indonesians to sample their deadly wares - and get them hooked.

    Answer the question "Why be ethical?" and teach all employees, including managers and supervisors, an ethical decision-making process that protects your organization and makes it a better place to work.

    Ethics matter. It's not just the big scandals you see in the news, but the small everyday decisions that add up, too. In fact, that's where you need to draw the lineˇXwith the little thingsˇXbefore serious damage is done.

    This employee ethics training video follows four realistic scenarios that demonstrate the importance of basic values such as respect for others, fairness, and honesty. And it teaches a three-part decision-making process that helps employees find their way to a solution even in complex situations where the right answer doesn't come easily.

    Employees will learn to recognize behaviors that may do harm, determine whether they are personally responsible to take action, and compare possible outcomes to select the solution that best repairs the ethical breakdown while protecting the integrity of the organization.

    Employees all share the responsibility to act ethically and to speak up if they see coworkers behaving badly. Use this training DVD to raise awareness, provide a framework for ethical decision making, and help create a company that employees can be proud of.
