    A consideration of the dimensions of servant leadership in intercultural contexts: a focal case study of a UK executive in Japan.Ashok Ashta & Peter Stokes - 2023 - Asian Journal of Business Ethics 12 (2):347-368.
    A range of emergent studies have explored the idea of a renewed human-centered society, termed “Society 5.0,” and the role therein, of servant leadership. In this regard, in East Asian cultural contexts, existing scholarship does not yet provide sufficient theoretical and practical guidance for intercultural contexts, such as when a predominantly individualistic UK business culture interacts with generally collectivist Japanese culture. This is an important gap because if Society 5.0 is to be realized then a more in-depth intercultural contextual appreciation (...)

    Courtesy or integrity: what constitutes a stakeholder-caring image?Hung Fai Sunny Chan, Felix Tang & Kwan Yu Karen Yeung - 2023 - Asian Journal of Business Ethics 12 (2):257-284.
    It is not uncommon for business institutions to position themselves as stakeholder-caring companies or organizations. However, there is little research on conceptualizing stakeholder-caring as a component of brand image. Through a theoretical lens of brand-consumer interactions, this paper introduces a new construct—stakeholder-caring image—and proposes a model that examines stakeholder-caring’s antecedents (integrity and courtesy) and its consequence (customer satisfaction). The two antecedents—integrity and courtesy—capture intrinsic and extrinsic aspects of brand-consumer interaction practice, respectively, while the consequence (customer satisfaction) is one important behavioral (...)

    Workplace deviance among healthcare professionals: the role of destructive leadership behaviors and citizenship pressure.Shahbaz Haider & Tan Fee Yean - 2023 - Asian Journal of Business Ethics 12 (2):193-218.
    Workplace deviance has long been a subject of discussion in various industries, including the healthcare sector. The poor working conditions in the nursing profession have made nurses feel pressured to perform more than their contractual tasks, resulting in job dissatisfaction, which has prompted them to engage in workplace deviance, which may jeopardize the hospital’s well-being and wealth. The negative behaviors exhibited by the nurses had a significant impact on hospital function, which may also endanger the lives of patients, which is (...)

    The impact of ethical leadership on organizational identity in digital startups: does employee voice matter?Elahe Hosseini & João J. Ferreira - 2023 - Asian Journal of Business Ethics 12 (2):369-393.
    Ethical leadership can lead to preparing the ground for employee voice, highlighting employees’ creativity, and encouraging knowledge-sharing behavior in the organization. Thus, this study examines the impact of ethical leadership on organizational identity with the mediating role of employee voice in digital startups. However, previous studies investigating the relationship between ethical leadership and organizational identity disregarded the intervening role of employee voice in this relationship. A cross-sectional design using a sample of 137 managers of digital startups in science parks. Through (...)

    From the financial year 2014-15, the Indian corporate sector was made to comply with a newly introduced Sect. 135 (5) by the Companies Act of 2013. The rule required select companies to spend 2% of their average net profits on CSR initiatives.

    Responsible innovation and resource-based theory: advancing an antecedent-outcome model for large manufacturing firms through structured literature review.Khalid Rasheed Memon & Say Keat Ooi - 2023 - Asian Journal of Business Ethics 12 (2):441-467.
    Technological innovations, despite their several benefits, may have drawbacks, thus, they need a control mechanism or directional channel. Responsible innovation (RI) has gained popularity in technology-intensive countries as a way to regulate otherwise uncontrollable and radical technological innovations. However, existing RI research lacks a clear theoretical foundation and has not adequately addressed the commercial and performance aspects of innovative products and firms. The current research proposes an empirically testable model for RI by conducting a structured literature review, focusing on the (...)

    The objective of this research is to investigate the effects of corporate governance scores and environmental, social, and governance scores (ESG) on firms’ cost of capital in emerging countries. The sample consists of 800 firm-year observations collected from Thomson Reuters.

    Organizational politics and affective commitment of expatriates: moderating role of Islamic work ethics.Adnan Riaz, Syed Ahsan Jamil & Saira Mahmood - 2023 - Asian Journal of Business Ethics 12 (2):419-439.
    Are the employees working in different countries and enjoying healthy compensation truly loyal to their organization? Our study attempts to answer this question by examining the role of perception of politics on the affective commitment of expatriates in the Sultanate of Oman. Following the axiom of equity theory, the relationships between the perception of politics (POP) to affective commitment (AC) and Islamic work ethics (IWE) to affective commitment (AC) was tested. The moderating role of Islamic work ethics was also examined (...)

    Does a green economy mentality exist? An experimental study in emerging country.Frida Fanani Rohma - 2023 - Asian Journal of Business Ethics 12 (2):285-304.
    Investor behavior is worth investigating as industries and institutions are concerned about spelling out environmental and social sustainability issues. The stream of research in environmental and social sustainabilities is from the points of view of institutions and policy. Nonetheless, environmental and social sustainability issues are based on individual levels, especially investors and their value. This study investigates whether moral attentiveness plays a role in financing orientation and investment propensity relationships. This research used an experimental method with a between-subject 2 × (...)

    The role of professional commitment on rationalization tendency of earning management: an experimental study.Dovi Septiari, Sany Dwita & Helga Nuri Honesty - 2023 - Asian Journal of Business Ethics 12 (2):493-512.
    This study investigates the role of advantageous comparisons and professional commitment in earning management rationalization. Our study adopted a laboratory between-subject experimental design with 139 accounting students. The results show that advantageous comparisons and professional commitment affect the rationalization of earning management actions. Moreover, compared to participants with high levels of professional commitment, those with low levels of professional commitment view earning management as a more appropriate action when they are engaged in earning management and viewing the egregious example of (...)

The study involved an inductive interpretive analysis, where critical aspects of workplace rectitude were extracted based on the agreed-upon Qur’anic verses and Hadith. The study augments the literature on workplace behaviour through divine command theory by offering new theoretical evidence (...)

    An Intergenerational Justice Approach to Technological Unemployment.Danielle Swanepoel - 2023 - Asian Journal of Business Ethics 12 (2):239-256.
    Technological unemployment is a very real phenomenon that should be addressed by governments and businesses alike. This paper argues that current approaches to technological unemployment are short-sighted in that they focus predominantly and primarily on current generations. This kind of approach results in harm such as ignoring impending meaning-crises and propagating a potential form of human-quota-driven tokenism in the process of implementing automation in the workplace. Arguably, current generations can (and should) benefit from communal resources insofar as they do not (...)

    Organizational moral learning by spiritual hearts: explorative cases from Brunei’s public sector.Iznan Tarip - 2023 - Asian Journal of Business Ethics 12 (2):513-533.
    Although there are several conceptions of organizational moral learning (OML), there is a need for more empirical studies. This study aims to provide illustrations of the dynamism of organizational moral learning by spiritual hearts (OML-SH), where OML and organizational immoral learning (OIL) are coupled antagonistically. Two OML-SH initiatives (i.e., the Quality Control Circle program and 100-hour training record system) within Brunei’s public sector are scrutinized to illustrate the dynamic process of OML-SH, spanning individual, group, and organizational levels. From the two (...)
