    Framework for Assessing the Integration of Ethics in the Design of Impact Investment Ventures.Adenekan Dedeke - 2022 - Business and Professional Ethics Journal 41 (2):181-215.
    Impact investment ventures are growing in the modern economy. However, the recent failures of some impact investment ventures are a cause for concern. Unfortunately, our concern about the ethicality of these kinds of social exchanges seem to emerge when it is too late. Namely, we become concerned about lack of ethics when a venture has failed or is collapsing. A better approach would be for us to have a means to proactively assess and improve the degree to which the arrangements (...)

    What Makes a Good Diversity Manager?Thomas Köllen - 2022 - Business and Professional Ethics Journal 41 (2):217-239.
    The prevalent rule-based perspective on diversity management renders most diversity initiatives more or less uniform, and it therefore also renders the individual in charge of these initiatives replaceable. Against this background, this article argues that an ethical realignment towards a virtue-based perspective, focusing on the diversity manager him- or herself, could help rethink diversity management, and to refashion it into a more impactful shape. The virtue in question is the Aristotelian notion of the virtue of practical wisdom. Making their practical (...)

    Benefit Corporations in the U.S.Irina M. Kopaneva - 2022 - Business and Professional Ethics Journal 41 (2):241-270.
    The benefit corporation is a for-profit corporation required to create a positive impact on workers, communities, society, and environment. The purpose of this paper is to explore how BCs reconcile dominant and alternative frames of profit. This study presented here explores three BCs in the U.S. through a dual-method approach based on observations and interviews. The study reveals how BC members understand and express the idea of profit. Furthermore, it shows the formation of an alternative frame of profit and elucidates (...)

    Relational Economy.Sara Mandray - 2022 - Business and Professional Ethics Journal 41 (2):271-285.
    Muhammad Yunus, Franck Riboud, Grameen Danone, those are some names and projects that may come to mind when thinking about social entrepreneurship. But what about Paul of Tarsus, John Chrysostom or Basil of Caesarea? In this theoretical article, we propose to revisit the ancient notion of oikonomia. Greek philosophers and after them the Church Fathers have drawn for more than twelve centuries the contours of this notion. In the light of their works, we consider the promise of an economy that (...)

  5. What an Ethics Management Program Cannot Sufficiently Address in an African Context.Elme Vivier, Mollie Painter, Gideon Pogrund & Kerrin Myres - 2022 - Business and Professional Ethics Journal 41 (2):287-314.
    Ethics management programs have become a popular first step for organizations to manage ethical risks and employee behaviors. However, such programs may fail to foster moral responsiveness or acknowledge broader societal issues. This article contributes to this discussion through an analysis of qualitative data from an ethics survey of fifteen South African companies. Results indicate employees experience persistent unethical behaviors in the form of the disrespect, bullying and discrimination. Reflecting on these results, the article explores the limits of ethical management (...)

    An Ethical Revision of the Status Quo.S. Douglas Beets - 2022 - Business and Professional Ethics Journal 41 (1):1-32.
    As currently designed, the business corporation is primarily designed for one simple purpose: the enrichment of stockholders. Considering the immense size and wealth of many modern corporations, however, this prioritized focus has deleterious ethical consequences, including a burgeoning wealth gap between those who own or manage the corporation and employees. Several individuals and organizations are calling for a redesign of the business corporation to benefit those affected by business organizations, such as employees and communities. One such design, developed in the (...)

    Retrieving Aristotle’s Phronesis.Gerald F. Cavanagh & Oliver F. Williams - 2022 - Business and Professional Ethics Journal 41 (1):33-58.
    Most executives recognize that the long-term financial health, prosperity and survival of their firm depend upon leaders who have good moral character. The article argues that a retrieval of Aristotle’s work on character and virtue can bring new clarity on how to identify and select leaders of our business institutions. The study presents a discussion of Aristotle’s phronesis or practical wisdom and how this focus might aid and abet the selection of appropriate leaders. The original contribution offered here centers on (...)

    Retail Practitioners’ Views Vs. Ideal Theoretical Positions Concerning Ethical Business Practices with Garment Suppliers.Geert Demuijnck & Patrick Murphy - 2022 - Business and Professional Ethics Journal 41 (1):59-92.
    The paper analyzes managers’ stance toward the ethical responsibility of those who work for multinational garment retailers. Most are charged with the social compliance policies affecting relationships with subcontractors. This study is based on interviews conducted with major European and American retailers. Our research question is: what is the normative stance of our respondents? We find that they reject the ideological way in which the normative debate on sweatshops has been conducted by business ethicists during the last decades. These executives’ (...)

    Promoting Professional Socialization.Dayoung Kim - 2022 - Business and Professional Ethics Journal 41 (1):93-114.
    During the professional socialization process, nascent professionals internalize the moral values of their profession. Since professional socialization begins in professional schools, this article provides a new conceptual framework for professional ethics education which highlights the affective aspects of moral formation. To create the conceptual framework, this article synthesizes the ideas of Durkheim, Kohlberg, Hoffman, and Haidt on moral formation, with Durkheim as a common thread. In this conceptual framework, the internalization process is influenced and promoted by social discipline, which includes (...)

    Refining the Ethics of Leadership-as-Practice.Joseph A. Raelin - 2022 - Business and Professional Ethics Journal 41 (1):139-156.
    The field of leadership-as-practice is beginning to mature as a theory of leadership in direct opposition to standard leadership, which views the individual as the mainstay of leadership experience. Nor does it focus on the dyadic relationship between leaders and followers, which historically has been the starting point for any discussion of leadership. Rather, it is concerned with how leadership emerges and unfolds through day-to-day experience. In this ongoing and evolving activity, questions of ethics arise which challenge what appears to (...)
