A ética empresarial já tem se consolidado como área de estudo, bem como elemento para gestão e tomada de decisões estratégicas nas organizações. Em tempos de globalização, diversidade e responsabilidade social, torna-se premente adotar posturas mais corretas nas relações pessoais, na política e nos negócios. O objetivo desta dissertação é descrever, por meio de um estudo de caso, como as organizações empresariais podem inserir princípios éticos na formulação de suas estratégias e na gestão de seus negócios. Para validação, a análise do caso conta com uma revisão teórica que recorre aos fundamentos filosóficos da ética, à aplicação do conceito de ética à atividade empresarial de acordo com o propósito organizacional. A fundamentação teórica contempla, ainda, a inserção de princípios éticos na gestão e estratégias de negócios e sua relação com o desempenho organizacional.; The Business ethics has already been consolidated as a study area, as well as an element for management and strategic decision-making process in organizations. In times of globalization, diversity and social responsibility, it becomes essential to adopt better attitudes in the personal relations, politics and businesses. The objective of this thesis is to describe...

Este trabalho propõe um estudo crítico da ética empresarial. Para tal nos valemos de três fontes de informação: a produção acadêmica referente ao tema, nove códigos de ética fornecidos publicamente por empresas do setor bancário e a realização de conversas com trabalhadores de grandes empresas do mesmo setor. Na análise da produção acadêmica entendemos que a melhor maneira de compreender a ética empresarial é vê-la como inserida num jogo de forças, onde o poder de barganha de cada um dos envolvidos e afetados pela atuação empresarial (clientes, acionistas, trabalhadores, sociedade, etc.) exerce força para adoção de padrões éticos mais, ou menos, exigentes. Da leitura crítica dos materiais de ética empresarial, verificamos diversos pontos na prática da ética empresarial que mereciam ser mais detidamente analisados: a promoção de valores que privilegiam a empresa em detrimento de outros envolvidos por suas ações; a atribuição das exigências éticas a instâncias abstratas, a tendência a mesclar as figuras do empresário e do trabalhador, encobrindo conflitos de interesse, o privilégio da normatividade em contraposição à ética como reflexão e a interferência da empresa em aspectos da vida pessoal do trabalhador. Nas conversas com trabalhadores verificamos que a maioria dos pontos anteriormente identificada era...

This paper reports on an analysis of how business ethics is approached within internal control (IC) frameworks provided by the most relevant bodies issuing guidance in this area. The comparative content analysis of the international frameworks shows that only three of them (i.e. COCO, ERM COSO, and King Report) are in fact conceptually concerned with business ethics. It was observed that ERM COSO is the most effective framework to address ethical issues according to the analyzed perspective. The results point out that an adequate structure of IC can contribute to achieving significant levels of corporate governance (CG), and delivering on improved managerial and operational efficiency and effectiveness.

What practical issues can arise when doing business in Vietnam? How is Vietnam adapting to the demands of the market economy? In particular, how does a knowledge of Vietnamese business culture, and history, help to clear up misunderstandings – especially involving relations between foreign business people and representatives from Vietnamese business and government? Does the Vietnamese experience have a broader value in the Asian region, where numerous different societies have been seeking a way to engage vigorously in international commerce – yet without losing touch with their own ethical foundations? ... ¶ This volume presents case study material relating to business in Vietnam. It outlines real issues and problems that have arisen – and then seeks to provide a cultural and historical context in which to understand them, and perhaps even solve them.; The research was undertaken in a cooperative project between Australian National University researchers and the St. James Ethics Centre, and received funding from the Australian Research Council. The St. James Ethics Centre helped to establish both the directions of the Project and a most valuable cooperative arrangement with the Vietnamese Ministry of Trade in Hanoi.; no

Approved for public release; distribution is unlimited.; The Polish public procurement and the Polish Ministry of Defense (MOD) acquisitions programs have been subject to frequent violations and abuses since the public procurement system was introduced in Poland, in 1995. The complex Polish economic situation and the MOD's budget constraints call for tools that allow public money to be managed properly. This thesis examines the laws and regulations binding the public procurement in Poland along with current ethical concerns that the MOD has encountered. This thesis further recommends elements of a Ethics Program, which the Polish MOD should adopt and implement within its procurement organizations.; Captain, Polish Army

O'Fallon and Butterfield (2005) in a review of the business ethics literature concluded that "ethical awareness" also called ethical sensitivity has received the least attention of the four steps in Rest's (1986) ethical decision making model. Available measures for ethical sensitivity are limited to specific contexts and suffer from several limitations. I extend the previous literature by creating a new measure for ethical sensitivity (AESS) that encompasses relevant dimensions for the accounting profession and is not specific to a particular setting. I also introduce a new individual differences variable to the accounting ethics literature. Specifically, I investigate the relationship between anti-intellectualism and ethical awareness. My findings support AESS as a measure of ethical sensitivity.

Canadians appear to hold the activities of those in government and in big business in low esteem. Media reports of several high-profile political and corporate instances of unethical conduct have reinforced the public's concern for the status of ethical conduct and honesty in government and in big business. The response by public and private sector managers to unethical conduct by employees is largely in the form of 'ethical rules' which both sectors agree provide a measure of certainty as to the ethical conduct expected from employees. Since research on ethics in the public and private sectors is limited and since ethics is a topic of increasing concern to both sectors, this thesis provides data that could assist managers in dealing with the issue of ethical conduct within their respective organizations. The purpose of this thesis is to compare the state of ethical conduct within public and private sector organizations in Canada. This is accomplished through a description and analysis of the approaches taken by the public and private sectors as well as the four professions of law, engineering, accountancy and medicine. Ethical conduct within the public sector focuses on the ethical behaviour of public servants rather than elected officials. The underlying intent of this thesis is to discover if contemporary ethical problems are similar in the public and iv private sectors with respect to the four ethical areas of conflict of interest...

Contemporary business ethics asks the question: what moral responsibilities do actors in a market economy have? Specifically, what obligations do corporate managers have? In this paper I consider a new method for answering these questions, Joseph Heath’s market failure model of business ethics. On this view, the market is a staged competition that is normatively justifiable through its tendency to promote Pareto efficiency. Since the market is justified by Pareto efficiency, competitive behaviour in the market should be constrained by a set of rules that is consistent with the pursuit of Pareto efficiency. Treating business as a competition is philosophically justified, I argue, both in the sense that it satisfies the conditions of a game, or at least a game­like activity, and in the sense that the deontic weakening that competition brings with it is justified in the market. I consider one case in more detail, to demonstrate the value of the approach. Within the business competition, I argue, lobbying is an impermissible, though conditionally excusable strategy. This is because lobbying routinely produces market failures, and indeed is often pursued precisely with that goal.; Thesis (Master, Philosophy) -- Queen's University, 2015-10-08 16:12:45.001

This paper shows how Adam Smith’s concept of moral motivation applies to business ethics and ethical consumption. Moral motivation for Smith is embedded in his moral psychology and his theory of virtue, particularly in terms of socialization and our social interactions and in his view that people always seek approval for their conduct, either though actual or ideal spectators. It follows that right conduct depends on the spectator’s awareness of one’s conduct. Thus concerning business ethics, transparency and accountability are essential, as opposed to anonymity which is detrimental. Applying Smith’s theory of motivation to consumption entails two further points: One, information concerning business conduct without consumers seeking it and acting accordingly will only have a limited effect. Two, people’s concern for the propriety of their action can and should include consumption, such that purchasing behavior becomes a moral issue rather than a mere economic one.

Resulta fundamental que la academia además de ofrecer a los estudiantes procesos pedagógicos de calidad para la administración de empresas, también promueva la formación de profesionales con un enfoque ético en función de las necesidades del entorno nacional y el contexto regional. Pero además, la ética empresarial debe asumirse como un área práctica del conocimiento y de la gestión relevante no sólo para completar los currículos académicos de las universidades, sino para promoverse como una práctica reflexiva entre los profesionales que a futuro llevarán las riendas de la administración y la gerencia, dejando a un lado los debates sobre ésta porque se trata en últimas de una herramienta útil y eficaz que ha sido legitimada tanto por las empresas como por la sociedad.; It is essential that the academy and offer students educational quality processes to business administration, also promotes the training of professionals with an ethical approach based on the needs of the national environment and the regional context.

Aasland pregunta por qué, en las economías capitalistas, esos escándalos no son más comunes, o incluso la norma. Tomando su ejemplo de la filosofía ética de Emmanuel Levinas, este libro propone una reconsideración profunda del significado de la ética y la economía. Este texto escrito con elegancia ofrece una exposición clara de la importancia de una ética de Levinas del otro para pensar a través y más allá de los límites y la persistencia de la racionalidad económica. Este libro invita al lector a ir más allá del recinto de la ética empresarial y nos lleva más allá de "business as usual", sino también más allá de "la ética como de costumbre".; While today many express astonishment at ‘ethical scandals’ in business, in this important new book Dag G.

This elegantly written text offers a clear statement of the importance of a Levinasian ethics of the Other for thinking through and beyond the limits and persistence of economic rationality.

This essay attempts to develop a new theoretical model for business ethics distinct from the two canonical business-ethics theories, the stakeholder theory and the shareholder value theory. Milton Friedman argued that because managers are agents of the company's owners, their sole moral responsibility is to maximize owner returns. Thomas Pogge has recently suggested that such a view involves a kind of moral incoherence and that we should reject the efficacy of social arrangements like the principal-agent relationship in altering moral obligations. Both views fail to give proper account of the dispersal of moral responsibilities in business contexts. We must distinguish "minimal moral obligations" (stemming from justice and rights) from "maximal moral obligations" (stemming from all other moral considerations, including duties of aid, beneficence, and the virtues). Minimal obligations apply to all persons, but maximal obligations can be effected by social arrangements like the ownermanager relationship. There may be moral obligations incumbent on owners that do not apply to managers. Understanding this distribution of responsibilities enables us to develop a new and attractive model of business ethics - "the ownership model" - which places greater emphasis on the rights and responsibilities of the owners of business than has been traditional in business ethics.

O estudo da governança corporativa e das questões éticas no ambiente de negócios tem atraído a atenção de acadêmicos do Brasil e do mundo. Além disso, a Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC), sob o amparo da Lei Sarbanes-Oxley, obrigou todas as empresas que negociam títulos mobiliários nos EUA a publicar uma avaliação de seus controles internos, tanto para assegurar mais transparência e ética como para estimular melhorias nas práticas de governança corporativa. Nesse contexto, este artigo descreve uma pesquisa que buscou analisar a dimensão ética no sistema de controle interno quando ele é considerado uma parte do sistema de controle gerencial. Realizou-se uma revisão da literatura internacional e destacou-se os organismos que em seus modelos de controle interno contemplam a dimensão ética na concepção da estrutura de controle. Na análise, as variáveis utilizadas na comparação dos modelos se pautaram na relevância dada por cada um à gestão de riscos, avaliação do desempenho e promoção de atitudes éticas nas empresas. A partir da técnica de análise de conteúdo, constatou-se que apenas três deles (i.e., o COCO, o COSO ERM e o King Report) apresentam uma clara preocupação com a dimensão ética...

The objective of this essay is to demonstrate bonds between the literature which deals with business ethics and the one that deals with social capital, beginning with Sánchez Vázquez’s focus on moral and ethics, in order to contribute with the perception of political, institutional, corporate and community processes, turned to the broadening of the sense of citizenship. In addition, it intends to point out the borderline of such bonds, concluding that the social capital, generated in the processes of constitution of a corporate moral of partnership and social responsibility, tends to have a low intensity in relation to certain stakeholders, while it accentuates and/or maintains a high intensity in relation to others. Such division tends to be more accentuated in countries and regions whose history has forged civic institutions and cultures in which freedom and moral responsibility maintain weak bonds. Nevertheless, in counterpart, the constitution of norms of social responsibility in the companies, such as SA 8000, under the control of governments and citizens, has been impelling the generation of social capital in increasingly extended scopes, reinforcing, thus, those bonds; Este ensayo tiene por objetivo evidenciar los vínculos entre la literatura que trata de La ética empresarial y la que trata del capital social...

During the late seventeenth century, when the Atlantic trade experienced unprecedented growth, Quakers emerged as the region’s most prominent trading community. Economic Historians credit the group and its business ethics with shaping the economic environment of early modern England and, consequently, its long term economic growth. This paper, however, argues that Friends’ business ethics were identical to those of their non-Quaker contemporaries. Using a wide range of both Quaker and non-Quaker sources, including sermons and merchant advice literature, this paper constitutes the first in-depth study of Quaker and non-Quaker business ethics. Having refuted the claim that the community’s commercial achievements reflect a unique blend of honesty, reliability, and swift payment of debts, the paper suggests an alternative explanation for Friends’ business success.

High profile scandals have brought about a renewed interest in business ethics and, in particular, in understanding the factors that promote ethical behaviour. Business ethics is about identifying and implementing values, rules and standards of conduct for guiding morally right behaviour in an organisation's interaction with its stakeholders. Against this background a quantitative analysis of the ethical practices of 46 companies operating in the Eastern Cape automotive industry was conducted to determine the extent to which ethics-related interventions contributed to establishing and maintaining an ethical organisational environment. A structured online questionnaire was used to collect the data. The data collected was subjected to extensive statistical analyses, including Cronbach Alpha coefficients and item total correlations, and various descriptive statistics were included as a quantitative summary of the data. A constant reference value for the study was also calculated to allow inferences regarding the significance of the tested variables to the study. The results revealed that the organisations in the sample are highly ethical due to the presence of ethics-related interventions, including a code of ethics, committed leadership...

This article explores how Applied Ethics, especially Business Ethics, is taught at the University of South Africa (Unisa). This discussion refers to the content of a particular Unisa module, Theoretical and Applied Ethics, which serves as an introduction to Bio-medical Ethics, Business Ethics and Environmental Ethics. The fundamentals of this course are: defining ethics; providing methods for moral decision-making; describing the role of ethics in a particular field and addressing common dilemmas in a specific context. The intention is to empower students to identify issues they are likely to face in the workplace, and to grow in confidence in their ability to make sound moral decisions when required to do so. The aim of this article is to contribute to the ongoing discussion between tertiary institutions about how the teaching of Business Ethics can be promoted, how moral decision-making in the workplace can be encouraged and what role theological ethics can play in this regard.

Business enterprises are in a position to exert a significant influence on society - particularly in the context of developing countries. Businesses no longer simply influence shareholders, employees and customers, but also play a role in strengthening (or weakening) political institutions and contributing to the wellbeing of other stakeholders. The result is that business enterprises are increasingly accountable to a growing number of stakeholders. In this article the possibility of utilising Christian ethics to engage business is investigated. The question is whether it is at all possible for the church to address the business world by applying its particular ethical resources, and - should this be possible - what form such engagements could take.
