Description:

This paper examines how corporate character and corporate social responsibility have tended to be high on the list of social and ethical concerns in modern times. It argues that the role of the individual in ethical action surpasses that of the corporation, as by default the corporation is not an entity which can be held accountable for its actions. In order to discuss the concept of individual responsibility, as it applies to corporate culture, the paper looks at three high profile case studies: It looks at Enron, WorldCom and Nike and discusses ethical and legal issues surrounding them as well as actions taken toward accountability.
