A Family Affair: A Case of Altruism or Aggrandizement? [Book Review]

Journal of Business Ethics 113 (1):157-161 (2013)
The case recounts an incident of theft at a CEOs home during a company party. The rogue may well be an employee, and the CEO considers his options: should he let the matter pass and preserve the good will generated by the party, or should he stand on principle and engage the issue frontally? Three commentators provide perspective on an optimal response. They consider whether the CEOs true intent is to show appreciation or showcase opulence. In addition, the aberrant behavior at this celebratory event suggests some measures that management might take in the workplace
