How Organizations Can Promote Ethics In today’s marketplace, organizations are under tighter and tighter scrutiny when it comes to ethics. It is critical for managers to be familiar with and understand ethics and how to promote ethical behavior in the workplace. Ethics are the standards of right and wrong that influence behavior, and ethical behavior is the accepted or “right” way to behave according to those standards. Managers will often have to choose between courses of action that will promote either economic performance or social performance. When a manager faces such a decision, the situation is known as an ethical dilemma. Riverview Manufacturing, as part of an ongoing continuous improvement process, recently completed an ethics audit to determine if there were potential ethical lapses within their organization.
