    The Third Eye: Exploring Guanxi and Relational Morality in the Workplace. [REVIEW]Doreen Tan & Robin Stanley Snell - 2002 - Journal of Business Ethics 41 (4):361 - 384.
    We examine the use of Confucian relational morality as an alternative reference point to that of modernist morality in judging workplace ethical conduct. A semi-structured interview based study involving 46 ethnic Chinese managers and 30 non-Chinese expatriate managers in Singapore, provided evidence of the use of traditional guanxi-linked morality as a moral resource by some of the former group in judging workplace ethical dilemmas. While such morality played only a minor role in moral reasoning, and was largely overshadowed by modernist (...)

    Attraction or Distraction? Corporate Social Responsibility in Macao’s Gambling Industry.Tiffany Cheng Han Leung & Robin Stanley Snell - 2017 - Journal of Business Ethics 145 (3):637-658.
    This paper attempts to investigate how and why organisations in Macao’s gambling industry engage in corporate social responsibility. It is based on an in-depth investigation of Macao’s gambling industry with 49 semi-structured interviews, conducted in 2011. We found that firms within the industry were emphasising pragmatic legitimacy based on both economic and non-economic contributions, in order to project positive images of the industry, while glossing over two domains of adverse externalities: problem gambling among visitors, and the pollution and despoliation of (...)

    Turnaround, Corruption and Mediocrity: Leadership and Governance in Three State Owned Enterprises in Mainland China. [REVIEW]Linfen Jennifer Huang & Robin Stanley Snell - 2003 - Journal of Business Ethics 43 (1/2):111 - 124.
    We focus on moral climates through case studies of three state owned enterprises (SOEs) in a South China City. In Company A, a shipbuilding company, the general manager persuaded the supervisory bureau to allow him to replace the old top management team with managers chosen on merit, and who supported his desire for reforms. He exercised transformational leadership, established internal rule of law, cultivated a spirited moral climate, and achieved turnaround. At Company B, a financial services conglomerate, the general manager (...)

    Strategies for Social and Environmental Disclosure: The Case of Multinational Gambling Companies.Tiffany Cheng-Han Leung & Robin Stanley Snell - forthcoming - Journal of Business Ethics:1-21.
    This study investigates how firms in the gambling industry manage their corporate social disclosures about controversial issues. We performed thematic content analysis of CSDs about responsible gambling, money laundering prevention and environmental protection in the annual reports and stand-alone CSR reports of four USA-based multinational gambling firms and their four Macao counterparts. This study draws on impression management theory, camouflage theory and corporate integrity theory to examine the gambling firms’ CSDs. We infer that the CSD strategies of gambling firms in (...)

    Conservative Transformation: Actively Managed Corporate Volunteerism in Hong Kong. [REVIEW]Robin Stanley Snell & Amy Lai Yu Wong - 2013 - Asian Journal of Business Ethics 2 (1):35 - 63.
    Abstract Our Hong Kong-based study used interviews with volunteers and other stakeholders to investigate the perceived integrity and commitment of firms’ adoption of actively managed corporate volunteerism (AMCV), to examine whether AMCV was removing barriers against voluntary community service work and to identify volunteers’ motives for AMCV involvement. Interviewees perceived that firms were adopting strategically instrumental approaches to AMCV, combining community service provision with corporate image promotion and/or with organisational development. They indicated that although AMCV was mobilizing people, who would (...)

    Developing Civic-Mindedness in Undergraduate Business Students Through Service-Learning Projects for Civic Engagement and Service Leadership Practices for Civic Improvement.Robin Stanley Snell, Maureen Yin Lee Chan, Carol Hok Ka Ma & Carman Ka Man Chan - 2015 - Asian Journal of Business Ethics 4 (1):73-99.
    Projects that challenge students to practice service leadership for civic improvement can address the aim of developing civic-mindedness in undergraduates. We conducted two qualitative studies. First, we investigated the learning experiences of four teams of undergraduate business students, who undertook semester-long course-embedded service-learning projects in partnership with four Hong Kong-based social enterprises. The students described five modes of civic engagement as project purposes, mentioned applying six types of service leadership practice for civic improvement, and described eight types of developmental outcome (...)
