Our reading this module/week looked more closely at the challenges of being a Christian in tough business environments and also presented a typology for Christian business ethics. With this in mind, read chapter 2 from Hess & Cameron as they explored “putting people first” at FedEx Freight. For this discussion board, answer the following questions:
- Compare the way FedEx Freight sought to put people first with the way Scripture teaches us to put people first. What are the similarities and differences? How can leaders help develop a culture of “putting people first?”
- What Biblical connections can be made to the values displayed by FedEx Freight? Are these values discussed in current business/organizational literature?
