    Investors in Need of Social, Ethical, and Environmental Information.Harry Hummels & Diederik Timmer - 2004 - Journal of Business Ethics 52 (1):73-84.
    In this contribution we will briefly discuss the shareholders' need for social, ethical and environmental information and the efforts of corporations to address this need. Looking at three cases, we will raise some doubt with regard to the adequacy of corporate SEE reporting to meet the needs of shareholders. We will discuss the following three cases: BP's investments in Azerbaijan, Nike's management of its labour conditions, of child labour and security issues, and Monsanto's production of genetically modified seeds.

    Organizing Ethics: A Stakeholder Debate. [REVIEW]Harry Hummels - 1998 - Journal of Business Ethics 17 (13):1403-1419.
    This article summarizes the development of the stakeholder concept in the last decade. The academic debate has been dominated over the last ten years by the managerial version of the stakeholder concept. The case of Shell in Ogoniland is elaborated to demonstrate that the managerial version does not pay sufficient respect to other interpretations of the concept. The article criticizes this dominant interpretation and argues for the need of an ongoing — academic and practical — debate on organizing and ethics. (...)

  3. The Future on Love and Business Organizing. An Agenda for Growth and Affirmation of People and the Environment.Harry Hummels, Matthew T. Lee, Patrick Nullens, Renato Ruffini & Jennifer Hancock - 2021 - Humanistic Management Journal 6 (3):329-353.
    Business and love appear to have little to do with each other. We hold the opposite to be true if the concept of love in business draws from two corresponding grammars. This paper contributes to the ‘agenda for growth and affirmation of people and the environment’ in business. By focusing on the grammars of love and business we operationalize the concept of love in ways that business executives, managers and employees can understand, adopt, and implement. With references to the theory (...)

    Trust is an important phenomenon to reduce organisational complexity and uncertainty. In the literature many types of trust are distinguished. An important framework to understand the variety and development of trust in organisations is provided by Zucker. She distinguishes three types of trust: process-based trust.

    Ethical Challenges in a Technological Environment: The Perspective of Engineers Versus Managers.Harry Hummels - 1999 - Science and Engineering Ethics 5 (1):55-72.
    In his article ‘Better Communication Between Engineers and Managers: Some Ways to Prevent Many Ethically Hard Choices’1 Michael Davis analyzes the causes of the disaster in terms of a communications gap between management and engineers. When the communication between (representatives of) both groups breaks down, the organization is in (moral) trouble. Crucial information gets stuck somewhere in the organization prohibiting a careful discussion and weighing of all (moral) arguments. The resulting judgment has therefore little (moral) quality. In this paper I (...)

    Teamwork and Morality: Comparing Lean Production and Sociotechnology.Harry Hummels & Jan de Leede - 2000 - Journal of Business Ethics 26 (1):75 - 88.
    In this article two important organizational concepts - lean production and sociotechnical systems design - are evaluated on their reflective capacity and their (moral) outcomes. At least in theory both concepts entail a promise of overcoming some of the irreflexive pitfalls of rational organization. As will be shown, both concepts do have short-comings too. It is argued that the meaning and value of the concepts is related to the context in which the systems are implemented.
