What are Good Business Ethics?
The Significance of Good Business Ethics

From the Paper:

"There are many studies which suggest that there is a link or between the ethical approach to business and positive and effective commercial outcomes. These studies find that good business ethics tend to be positively correlated with aspects such as job and life satisfaction, while being negatively related to stress, poor health and absenteeism (Prottas, 2008, p. 316). In essence this means that the application of good business ethics can provide the company with a positive business image and also have a positive influence on the workforce - such as a decline in the absenteeism rate.
" Research has also found that good business ethics tend to maximize profits, while at the same time providing a working environment that promotes harmony and productivity; "... ethical businesses tend to make much more profits than the others. The reason for this is that customers of businesses which follow ethics are loyal and satisfied with the services and product offerings of such businesses" (Importance of Business Ethics). This is a rather obvious point, as a company that deals honestly and fairly with its clients and customers will tend to be better supported than a company that is underhand and which has no business ethics."
