Reinforcing ethical decision making through corporate culture

Journal of Business Ethics 16 (8):855-865 (1997)

Behaving ethically depends on the ability to recognize that ethical issues exist, to see from an ethical point of view. This ability to see and respond ethically may be related more to attributes of corporate culture than to attributes of individual employees. Efforts to increase ethical standards and decrease pressure to behave unethically should therefore concentrate on the organization and its culture. The purpose of this paper is to discuss how total quality (TQ) techniques can facilitate the development of a cooperative corporate culture that promotes and encourages ethical behavior throughout an organization.
