The importance of ethics to job performance: An empirical investigation of managers' perceptions [Book Review]
Graduate studies at Western
Journal of Business Ethics 8 (4):253 - 260 (1989)
|Abstract||This study probed a crucial assumption underlying much of the ethics theory and research: do managers perceive ethical behavior to be an important personal job requirement? A large sample of managers from a cross-section of industries and job functions indicated that, compared to other job duties, certain ethical behaviors were moderate to somewhat major parts of their jobs. Some noteworthy differences by industry, organization size, tenure and job function were also found. These findings underscore the importance of ethics for business education. They also have implications for manager selection, training, and development by organizations.|
