Is your ethical compass still functioning the same way it always has, or does it need to be recalibrated based on the issues of the day?


So are the values you had coming into this job still the same? Do you wink at something and let it slide, where you might have made an issue of it years ago? Is your ethical compass still functioning the same way it always has, or does it need to be recalibrated based on the issues of the day?
