    The Impact of the Work Environment on Ethical Decision Making: Some Australian Evidence. [REVIEW]Geoffrey Soutar, Margaret M. McNeil & Caron Molster - 1994 - Journal of Business Ethics 13 (5):327 - 339.
    Business ethics has emerged in recent years as a field of significant scholarly endeavour. Particularly well documented is the existence of ethical conflict at work and the reported inseparability of business decisions and moral consequences. However, to date, the majority of studies have been conducted in the American business context.This paper examines the concept of ethical conflict as experienced by employees in the Australian context. According to a sample of Western Australian managers, ethical conflicts at work do occur — with (...)

    Western Australian Managers Tell Their Stories: Ethical Challenges in International Business Operations. [REVIEW]Margaret McNeil & Kerry Pedigo - 2001 - Journal of Business Ethics 30 (4):305 - 317.

    Activists, Pragmatists, Technophiles and Tree-Huggers? Gender Differences in Employees' Environmental Attitudes.Walter Wehrmeyer & Margaret McNeil - 2000 - Journal of Business Ethics 28 (3):211 - 222.
    Although there are suggestions that the environmental attitudes of men and of women differ, there have been few studies that study and evaluate these differences at the workplace. Given the claim of Ecofeminist writers about the environmental superiority of women's environmental attitudes, and the proclaimed need of business to change attitudes and behaviour with regard to the environment, this is a surprise. The paper is based on 1022 (37% from women) questionnaires which were collected in a U.K. pharmaceutical company, and (...)

    A Management Perspective on Business Ethics.Geoffrey N. Soutar, Margaret McNeil & Caron Molster - 1995 - Journal of Business Ethics 14 (8):603 - 611.
    In recent years the institutionalisation of ethics as a means of enhancing the ethical nature of business operations has received widespread empirical coverage. To date, however, few studies have been conducted in the Australian business context. This paper examines the institutionalisation of ethics by a sample of companies based in Perth, Western Australia. In particular, company representatives were asked if their company was institutionalising ethics, why this initiative was undertaken, how this was taking place and what specific issues were being (...)

    Means or Ends? Ethical Decision Frameworks in the Western Australian Public Service.Allan Peachment, Margaret McNeil, Geoff Soutar & Caron Molster - 1995 - Journal of Business Ethics 14 (8):629 - 641.
    The paper analyses results from a questionnaire-based survey of ethical behavior of members of the Western Australian Senior Executive Service. Relating to definitions of deontology (duty) and teleology (ends over means) the study examines the validity of three hypotheses on ethical behaviour/decision making frameworks. Longitudinal data is related to the 1983–90WA Inc period. The study establishes that SES managers apply ethical frameworks in order to understand the meaning of: ethical behaviour and that there are groups of managers with distinct understandings (...)
