Differences in moral values between corporations

Journal of Business Ethics 9 (12):971 - 979 (1990)
This research compares the importance of moral values for corporations' managements, as reported by 97 knowledgeable employees in eight corporations. Does an employee consensus emerge within corporations and does it differ between corporations? To answer this question, an analysis of covariance technique was used to compare the importance of moral values between corporations versus within corporations. Results corroborate the hypothesis that closely matched corporations do differ significantly from one another in the importance of prevailing moral values. Evidence also suggests that the importance of prevailing moral values may be inversely related with company size. Implications for future research and for the practice of management are delineated.
