What are some of the common types of unethical behaviors in organizations? Why should leaders monitor these behaviors? What types of leaders implement ethical directives best? Many of the unethical behaviors that take place in organizations deal mostly with morale issue. Things such as taking office supplies, leaving work early, not work when you are there and furthermore, telling your boss that you are sick or need the day off when really nothing is wrong with you. Leaders should monitor and observe these conditions and look for trends. These trends can spread throughout the organization like a virus. If other employees notice the behavior they will begin to think that it is alright to behave in such a manor. From experience with several different types of leaders, I have found that leaders with a higher moral character tend to be better leaders. They are fair and just and really set the standard for others to follow. They lead by example which in turn encourages the workforce and establishes trust among their subordinates. In what ways do unethical behaviors increase organizational costs? What are some of the common costs associated with unethical behavior?These unethical behaviors increase the organizational cost for several different reasons. One is that they are paying you to work and when you are taking time off because you are pretending to be sick or you sneak out of work a few minutes early the company is paying you for results that they will not get.
