Ask the Expert: Why doing the Right Thing Matters

Published: 17 Feb 2020 Average Rating: unrated Print
 

Business ethics is the application of ethical values to business behaviour. It goes beyond the legal requirements for a company and is, therefore, about discretionary decisions and behaviour guided by values. It is relevant both to the conduct of the organisation and the conduct of employees. Most employees experience business ethics through a dilemma. Ethical dilemmas make individuals think about their obligations, duties and responsibilities and can be highly complex and difficult to resolve. Complex ethical dilemmas go beyond the two basic questions: 'is it legal?' and 'is it consistent with the company's code of business ethics?' and involve decisions between right and right.

Join Barbara Chomicka, Fellow of IACCM, to explore a difference between doing things ethically and doing ethical things, and an emerging series of questions to ask yourself: What would my children think? How would I feel about it being on the front page of newspapers in 2030?
