Good morning to everyone in this room. I would like to thank the principal, the teachers, and my dear friends for allowing me to speak to you today about moral values. Being honest, courteous, respectful, considerate, self-restraint, treating everyone equally, and adopting other positive traits are examples of moral values.
Such characteristics are indicative of someone who has strong moral principles. People who lack these traits, on the other hand, are denigrated by society. To adopt moral values and practice healthy practices, one must possess conviction. Not everyone has the same level of determination to maintain these behaviors. But we must make an effort to practice these.
People look forward to those who have high moral standards. During a job interview, one of the things the interviewer looks at is the potential employee’s moral character. Every firm has a set ethical code of conduct that the employees are required to abide by in addition to the fundamental moral values.
Unfortunately, today’s kids do not place much weight on moral values. One of the factors contributing to the decline of these values nowadays is the escalating competition. People are not hesitant to lie, mislead, or engage in other unethical and immoral behavior to advance their careers.
This makes the workplace unproductive. Because of this, the morally dubious personnel rise to the top while the qualified ones remain in their positions for life. For our society to thrive and progress in the proper direction, we need more people who have strong moral values. Thank you.
