    Individual, Collective and Social Responsibility of the Firm.Tuomo Takala & Paul Pallab - 2000 - Business Ethics 9 (2):109–118.
    The main concern of this paper is the moral responsibility of the firm, as well as of the individuals in a firm, to uphold environmental protection. Much of the business ethics literature defines corporate social responsibility in terms of stakeholder relationships, and the emphasis is frequently on collective as opposed to individual responsibility. This paper has three objectives. The first is to clarify the nature of moral responsibility, and the distinction between legal and moral responsibility. The second objective is to (...)

    Leadership Manipulation and Ethics in Storytelling.Tommi P. Auvinen, Anna-Maija Lämsä, Teppo Sintonen & Tuomo Takala - 2013 - Journal of Business Ethics 116 (2):415-431.
    This article focuses on exerting influence in leadership, namely manipulation in storytelling. Manipulation is usually considered an unethical approach to leadership. We will argue that manipulation is a more complex phenomenon than just an unethical way of acting in leadership. We will demonstrate through an empirical qualitative study that there are various types of manipulation through storytelling. This article makes a contribution to the literature on manipulation through leadership storytelling, offering a more systematic empirical analysis and a more nuanced view (...)

    Discourses of Charisma: Barack Obama’s First 6 Months as the President of the USA. [REVIEW]Tuomo Takala, Sanja Tanttu, Anna-Maija Lämsä & Aila Virtanen - 2013 - Journal of Business Ethics 115 (1):149-166.
    This study aims to investigate discourses of the charisma of Barack Obama in articles in a leading Finnish newspaper during the first 6 months of his presidency. The results show that the media created a very enthusiastic atmosphere around Obama. His charisma was built up mostly around his person, with the emphasis on an exceptional personality, life story and behaviour. In addition, the various crises that arose were used to reinforce the picture of Obama as charismatic. The findings undermine the (...)

    Ethical Aspects in Nordic Business Mergers: The Case of Electro-Business.Jari Syrjälä & Tuomo Takala - 2008 - Journal of Business Ethics 80 (3):531-545.
    Postmerger integration is a highly challenging and demanding task. Its success depends not only on economic factors but also on the organisational members' feelings and their personal contribution to the new entity. Mergers are usually made for the sake of profitability in the first place, whereas less attention is paid to employees in such situations. This article describes various ethical observations made in our study on corporate mergers in the Nordic Electro-business industry. We examine how the organisational change was experienced (...)

    Managerial Work and Lying: A Conceptual Framework and an Explorative Case Study. [REVIEW]Tuomo Takala & Jaana Urpilainen - 1999 - Journal of Business Ethics 20 (3):181 - 195.
    In the last few years there has been a lot of fuzzy talk, scientific discourses and comments of business life about the values, ethics and social responsibility of companies. Companies are expected to have also some other tasks besides that of gaining profit. A part of the tasks which management has, except for thinking of the benefits of their own organization, are things which work for the well-being of the whole society. Issues like this are, among others, working for employment, (...)

    Corporate Ethics and Indigenous People.Susanna Myllylä & Tuomo Takala - 2008 - Proceedings of the International Association for Business and Society 19:282-288.
    Finland is currently undergoing a fundamental structural transformation in the forestry sector, with factories closing in the Global North and production being shifted to the Global South (see also Carrere & Lohmann 1996; Cossalter & Pye-Smith 2003). This is accompanied by Finnish mass movements protesting unemployment and demanding corporate social responsibility (CSR) from theforest industry. The difficult domestic situation, however, seems to overshadow the circumstances of the new production regions in the South. What do we actually know about the impacts (...)

    The Discursive Dance: The Employee Co-Operation Negotiations as an Arena for Management-by-Fear.Anu Pynnönen & Tuomo Takala - 2018 - Journal of Business Ethics 147 (1):165-184.
    The purpose of this article is to qualitatively describe and critically explain the discursive construction of employee co-operation negotiations in Finland as an arena for management-by-fear. The article consists of a theoretical review, covering the legislative basis of co-operation negotiations and recent research on management-by-fear. The empirical study consists of media texts and company media releases in Finland in 2012–2013. The main conclusions are that there are distinctive features in the co-operation negotiations that enable and enforce the possibility of management-by-fear, (...)
