Ethics and the Corporation

March 21, 2012 1458

After a week in which outgoing executive Greg Smith accused Goldman Sachs of losing its “moral fiber,” Apple’s factory conditions in China made news again, and the Ethisphere Institute released its 2012 list of the World’s Most Ethical Companies, the issue of corporate ethics is in the spotlight.

For today’s post, we’ve pulled together a diverse assortment of articles related to ethics and the corporation, including an analysis of global codes of ethics, an exercise in ethics education, and a study of executives’ ethical leadership.

We hope you find this selection insightful and thought-provoking.
