Product Description: Running a company ethically is certainly not a new subject, but recent events in corporate America indicate that doing so may be a rare practice. As history shows, corporate greed and the willingness to view business as amoral can bring disastrous results to the innocent as well as to those who perpetrate unethical acts. Authors Darnell Lattal, Ph.D. and Ralph W. Clark, Ph.D. contend, however, that the majority of organizations operate with high ethical standards and that the extreme examples of unethical corporate behavior are the exceptions, not the rule. Unethical practices, they assert, are sometimes committed by the blatantly immoral but more often such practices result from the cumulative missteps of otherwise well-meaning people. Yet employee and public trust of corporate America has eroded!Ethics at Work provides not only the philosophical foundation for ethical decision making, but also outlines the specific steps for ensuring that individuals and organizations pursue profit with principle. As a classroom text or an on-the-job guide, the book's three parts include the information that every working person needs to make ethics an actionable entity and reciprocal trust a renewed element of today's business:Part One: ?Defining Ethics? explains how to demonstrate a visible commitment to an ethical workplace, develop and reinforce respect for individuality, achieve results and long-term relationships through ethical sales behaviors, define moral integrity, and make ethical decisions.Part II: ?Ethical Conditions at Work? provides information on structuring the workplace environment so that ethics is a primary consideration in all business practices. This section also addresses the complexities of doing business in a global setting.Part III: ?Increasing Ethical Behavior? relates how to make ethics a habit at work. This section details the behavioral strategies and tools for implementing and sustaining your personal change and describes specific behavior-based methods for designing accountability and reinforcement into an active ethical system.Ethics at Work provides a decision-making model to assess the current company climate and offers doable steps for achieving performance changes that increase ethical behavior. From the challenges of global enterprise and conflicting cultures to the everyday dilemmas of accurate expense reporting and the honest use of office supplies, this book should be required reading for every individual contending with the realities of the workplace.

It’s simple. Begin by searching for your textbook by ISBN (10 or 13-digit number that can be found on the back cover of each book), title, author or keyword. Next select how long you would like to rent the book then add it to your cart. Repeat for each book you’re looking for. After completing the order we’ll ship them to you and you’ll also receive a prepaid mailer. Return your books in the mailer by your rental due date.
