    An Investigation of Ethics Officer Independence.W. Michael Hoffman, John D. Neill & O. Scott Stovall - 2008 - Journal of Business Ethics 78 (1-2):87-95.
    In this paper, we examine whether ethics officers are able to perform their assigned duties independently of organizational management. Specifically, we investigate whether inherent conflicts of interest with company management potentially hinder the ability of ethics officers to serve as an effective monitor and deterrent of unethical activity throughout the organization. As part of our analysis, we conducted 10 detailed phone interviews with current and retired ethics officers in order to determine whether practicing ethics officers feel the need for additional (...)

    Exploring the Role Performance of Corporate Ethics Officers.Henry Adobor - 2006 - Journal of Business Ethics 69 (1):57-75.
    Organizations continue to show renewed focus on managing their ethics programs by developing organizational infrastructures to support their ethics implementation efforts. An important part of this process has been the creation of an ethics officer position. Whether individuals appointed to the position are successful in the role or not may depend on a number of factors. This study presents a suggested framework for their effectiveness. The framework includes a focus on personal, organizational and situational factors to predict performance in the (...)

    An Empirical Evaluation of Job Satisfaction in Private Sector and Public Sector Bank Employees.Prof Madhurima - 2014 - SOCRATES 2 (1):89-103.
    Job satisfaction cannot be defined by a single measurement alone. In fact, there is substantial evidence to support a relationship between satisfaction and performance of a job. For such a relationship there has been tremendous interest among managers and economists as it helps in increasing the quality as well as quantity of the production. However, some argue contrarily, that rather it is the performance that leads to satisfaction. Whatever be the direction of relationship, one thing is clear that productivity and (...)

    Promoting Ethics Through Ethics Officers: A Proposed Profile and an Application.Dove Izraeli & Anat BarNir - 1998 - Journal of Business Ethics 17 (11):1189-1196.
    We present an ideal profile of an emerging organizational function: the Ethics Officer. We argue that the main contribution of an EO is to provide management with a broad perspective of the organization's stakeholders – one that emphasizes the interests of all stakeholders, including those not affiliated with the dominant coalitions in the organization. In order to avoid turning the EO into a rubber stamp for management activities, we suggest that certain conditions prevail to enable the person in this position (...)

    A Survey of Ethics Officers in Large Organizations.Duffy A. Morf, Michael G. Schumacher & Scott J. Vitell - 1999 - Journal of Business Ethics 20 (3):265 - 271.
    Corporations in the United States have been starting ethics programs for a variety of reasons both active and passive. Ethics officers are being charged with improving both company image and the level of ethical decision-making by employees. Thirty ethics officers from Fortune 500 firms were surveyed to develop a database of their duties and the companies' commitment to ethical standards. The results suggest much is being done, both in the diversity of responses and the similarities of commitment and duties.

    The Impact of Membership in the Ethics Officer Association.Gonzalo A. Chavez, Roy A. Wiggins & Munevver Yolas - 2001 - Journal of Business Ethics 34 (1):39 - 56.
    In this study, we propose considering membership in the Ethics Officer Association (EOA) as a proxy for the firm''s commitment to ethical decision making, and we analyze the influence of firm- and CEO-specific characteristics on this commitment. While we observe a positive relationship between membership and firm size, we also document a negative relationship between EOA membership and the executive''s time in position and, to a more modest extent, accounting returns. Pursuing this further, we present evidence that firms with past (...)

    Ethical Leaders Under Pressure.Matthew Haigh - unknown
    Under consideration is whether organisations can validate moral norms that cannot be appropriated by capital. Meta-ethics and moral philosophy can help progress discussions from debates over the existence of collective morality onto exercise of corporate responsibilities. We contribute to recent modelling work in universalist thinking (L. Boltanski and L. Thivenot, 2006, On Justification: Economies of Worth, C. Porter (trans), Princeton University Press NJ) by identifying salient and, is argued, necessary conditions for the exercise of collective moral decisions. Adequate preparation for (...)
