Business Ethics

December 20

Gain valuable insight into the ethical landscape and learn to recognize, identify, and be prepared for common ethical “traps.”

Most businesspersons truly intend to act with honesty and integrity, but the ethical landscape can be more complicated than most can foresee. Ethical landmines await the unwitting and the unprepared. Ethical dilemmas occur when competing values are involved or when multiple stakeholders have diverging interests. Ethical standards may pull in opposite directions. No option satisfies all ethical needs. There is more bad news. The decision to act ethically often carries a high personal price. Ethical conduct and a need for courage are frequently inseparable. It is hard to act ethically when you are the one who will pay the cost of integrity, but it can be even harder when a co-worker or family will suffer. Ethics education must be an ongoing and committed part of any business. Future business leaders must be trained to recognize and confront difficult ethical issues. This topic will scan the ethical landscape and help businesspersons to recognize, identify, and be prepared for common ethical “traps.” It will survey ethical foundations, general principles of ethical business behavior, business and employees, business and customers/public, and business and investors.

  • You will be able to define workplace respect.
