Business Ethics

The news media have been much stronger in investigating bad behaviors done by companies.  Additionally, with smartphones and social media, people record unethical corporate behavior and immediately share it with the world.  Companies often do not have the systems to prevent, manage, and respond to this negative publicity.  Additionally, as an employee, workers want to do the right thing.  However, there are often competing pressures the push people, accidently or purposely, toward bad behavior, which can damage both their companies and personal careers.  Additionally, what is the ethical choice is not always clear, unless the employee has been taught to be ethically aware.  This course will explore how individuals can approach and understand the process that leads to ethical behavior, how managers can encourage their staff to act in appropriate ways, and what organizations can do to prevent bad actions and news which can seriously damage their businesses.
