Virtue ethics in organization study, discussion help

Please provide a short response to this student’s weekly conversation

In the example given about John Smith, I
searched around to find more information befitting the Virtue ethics
subject. Some information was on 20th century philosophy in
respect to virtue ethics, to even talking about theory, but I final
found information on a BBC webpage I thought fit this example
perfectly. The webpage Virtue Ethics (2014) says “Virtue ethics is
person rather than action based, it looks at the virtue or moral
character of the person carrying out an action, rather than at ethical
duties and rules, or the consequences of particular actions. Virtue
ethics not only deals with the rightness or wrongness of individual
actions, it provides guidance as to the sort of characteristics and
behaviors a good person will seek to achieve.”

From the example I see Jim as a professional, and a person who is
very good at his job, but in his “eagerness to maximize profits” he
chooses to do the wrong thing. It may have been his moral character of
being such a good accountant, and knowing that everyone looks at him as a
brilliant mind, or that he feels he is the only one to make things
happen. Either way his moral compass was off, and his character I feel
was an influence in the decisions he made.
