Business Ethics

“Do the right thing” is often easier said than done – particularly when it applies to the ethical behavior of business executives and the corporate entities they oversee. Just the mere mention of Bernie Madoff, Enron or WorldCom conjures up images of diabolical financial mismanagement and criminal betrayal of the public trust.

In the wake of countless corporate scandals over the last decade or so, businesses, large and small, have made it a priority to establish a set of formal guidelines governing moral conduct and monetary responsibility. Companies are insisting that employees act with integrity in their dealings with customers and with each other.
