Description:

This paper argues that organizational ethics is related as much to organizational culture and leadership, or organizational value, as it is to a clear and concise code of ethics. The paper asserts that organizations need to ensure that not only is there a well-documented code of ethics but that all employees, from executive management to the lowest level of employee, are well versed in the document and are well aware of the organization's expectations regarding acceptable and appropriate behavior. The paper goes on to discuss how organizational ethics are maintained through a balanced approach in human resources, through ethical leadership strategies, and though ethical training.

From the Paper:

"Organizations need to ensure that not only is there a well documented code of ethics but that all employees, from executive management to the lowest level of employee, are well-versed in the document and are well-aware of the organization's expectations regarding acceptable and appropriate behavior. The precedent established by executive management ensures that employees who might waiver when faced with regulatory loopholes or quandaries that seem to blur the line between what is ethical and what is not, will be able to rely on their organization's support by taking the high-road every time or at least in gaining higher opinion and feedback."
