    Within their value chains of suppliers through customers, many businesses are becoming more aware of the environmental aspects and impacts of their organizations.

Attributes of the various levels of behavior and classification of some organizational (...)

The truly global company must come to grips with the legal and (...)

  8. Dinah Payne & Frédéric Dimanche (1996). Towards a Code of Conduct for the Tourism Industry: An Ethics Model. [REVIEW] Journal of Business Ethics 15 (9):997 - 1007.
    There are four areas of concern in the ethical pursuit of tourism. Too often, tourism development is planned without consideration of the local environment's or community's needs and characteristics. An ethical treatment of the environment and community should involve consideration and participation in the planning and decision-making process, as well as implementing effective guidelines to assure fairness in employing both traditional and non-traditional employees. Finally, the industry must pay special attention to the target market: tourists.

    With cach successive generation of management, managers have been faced with different goals dictated by that current society''s needs and mores. For example, in the early 1900''s, industrial growth was essential to society''s needs; at the same time, such growth would not be hampered by social costs that were perceived as unimportant. Those social costs viewed as unimportant have not been properly factored into the cost of goods produced. Therefore, the products sold were underpriced, failing to reflect their true social (...)

    Physical attractiveness is highly valued in our society and impacts a variety of decisions made by organizations. Generally speaking, research findings suggest that the more attractive the person, the greater the likelihood of favorable employment-related decisions. It follows then, that those considered physically unattractive will suffer adversely in some employment-related decisional contexts — decisions that may prevent them from achieving the good life. Until recently, discrimination against unattractive people has been considered nothing more than a moral or ethical issue. However, (...)

  12. Cecily A. Raiborn & Dinah Payne (1990). Corporate Codes of Conduct: A Collective Conscience and Continuum. [REVIEW] Journal of Business Ethics 9 (11):879 - 889.
    This paper discusses the vast continuum between the letter of the law (legality) and the spirit of the law (ethics or morality). Further, the authors review the fiduciary duties owed by the firm to its various publics. These aspects must be considered in developing a corporate code of ethics. The underlying qualitative characteristics of a code include clarity, comprehensiveness and enforceability. While ethics is indigenous to a society, every code of ethics will necessarily reflect the corporate culture from which that (...)
