M5_A1 Developing an Ethical Culture Cynthia Moore February 2, 2018 Ethical culture in business is more than a code for employees to sign, or a policy for employees to glance at on the break room walls. Their must be total understanding by everyone in the business and the expectations need to be continually reinforced. The company will only succeed if they instill and maintain good business ethics. Ed Kinberg stated that “good business ethics form the core of a successful business” (2012). Good ethics in the workplace start with the selection of an ethically sound management team. The selection process should eliminate questionable candidates. There are many psychological assessments available to employers that will identify a candidate’s honesty, integrity and trustworthiness (Sackett & Wanek, 1996). Once the team is selected, it will be easier for the management and upper level administration to model good behavior and set examples for subordinates. By forming a written and observable policy or code of ethics, the potential for ambiguity will be greatly reduced.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
