Comprehensive and clear, this book introduces readers to a generic, universal standard by which to judge and encourage ethical behavior in the workplace and life in general. It begins by exploring the philosophical roots upon which the field of ethics is based and springs, and then discusses the four basic current approaches to ethics—their strengths and weaknesses, and how they can be pulled together under the new standard. A focus on organization ethics places the standard into the workplace, and shows that its successful implementation there requires the correct design of organization systems, rather than an attempt to change the individual employees. For corporate training programs, and the creation of more ethical individuals in the workplace.
