Maintaining and Improving the Ethical Culture of a Business Organization
In business, and most other types of organizations, the job of maintaining the values of the company is not the responsibility of any one department or individual; everyone—officers and board, executives, managers, supervisors, and individual contributors—has a role in fostering ethical behavior. Each is a role model to others and can encourage and motivate fellow employees to "do the right thing."
The Center's Business and Organizational Ethics Partnership, a group of business ethics scholars and executives with responsibility for ethics and compliance, has long been interested in how various functions in an organization contribute to the company's ethical culture. These materials capture the ongoing conversations in that group.
