Organizational humanizing cultures: Do they generate social capital? [Book Review]

Journal of Business Ethics 45 (1-2):3 - 14 (2003)
An organizational culture can be defined as "Organizational Humanizing Culture" if it presents the following features: (1) recognition of the person in his or her dignity, rights, uniqueness, sociability and capacity for personal growth, (2) respect for persons and their human rights, (3) care and service for persons around one, and (4) management towards the common good versus particular interests. Current findings and generalized experience suggest that an organizational culture with these features tends to bring about trust and associability, which are basic elements for social capital (a sort of asset embedded in the relationships of individuals, communities, networks or societies).
