John, a recent university graduate has been hired by a Web design consultancy company to interview their staff to ascertain their current knowledge. The aim of the study is to inform the company about the type of training courses they need to implement. The objective is to highlight areas of overall weakness as opposed to individual shortcomings. Despite this, the type of data John collects will be able to identify individual staff weaknesses. Informed consent clearly states that comments made to John by interviewees are to remain private. Following the study, the Vice President of the company approaches John, asking him “who did well in the study?” John, afraid he will lose his job, proceeds to give the vice-president the key findings, including those identifying individual staff weaknesses. Analyse whether John’s relay of his findings from the staff interview process is an ethical action according to the Enlightenment theories and Virtue ethics. Consider how all stakeholders are affected in your answer. Based on this analysis, conclude whether it is moral for John to have provided the findings of the interview process to the company.
