HASH(0xa32ec420) out of 5 stars A Must for Managers Dec 6 2007
By Glenn Shepard - Published on
Format: Hardcover
The CEO of one Fortune 500 company told me that this topic is what keeps him up at night, because the exposure is so incredible when you're responsible for tens of thousands of employees. But I also know from my clients that the problem can still spell disaster for managers of small businesses, non-profits, and even in the government sector. Dr. Bauer summed it up best on page 78 in the section titled "Ninety-Nine Percent Ethical Is Not Enough". This book should be a requisite for anyone in any supervisory capacity.

HASH(0xa2bae9c0) out of 5 stars Keep Out of Court and In the Black Dec 29 2008
By Shel Horowitz - Published on
Format: Paperback
A straightforward basic book on ethics in large corporate environments. Dr. Bauer makes some important points, including the differences among behavior that is legal but not ethical (such as working for a concentration camp), ethical but not legal (Gandhi's campaigns against the British), or both legal and ethical.

Other interesting points:

* Lawyer review creates the danger of mealy-mouthed statements that hold up in court but may actually make your company seem less ethical. Make sure the language is clear even after the lawyers go through it.

* Ethics programs are useless without employee buy-in

* Effective modeling of leadership and excellent customer service make ethics problems less likely

* Where to look for ethics challenges before they turn into crises (one benchmark: understanding the difference between a valid incentive and an ethically problematic inducement)

In Bauer's view, most ethics problems have roots outside the workplace, in emotional and financial issues faced by an individual employee; he has some ideas about minimizing their impact. Also about ensuring alternative reporting channels, so if a subordinate has to report a boss, there's someone other than the boss who can receive the message.

Shel Horowitz's award-winning sixth book, Principled Profit: Marketing That Puts People First, demonstrates how to build a business around ethics, environmental sustainability, and cooperative practices--and how to develop marketing that highlights those advantages.
HASH(0xa29a2654) out of 5 stars Brilliant insights Feb. 21 2012
By Eaton International Consulting Inc. (Consignment) - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition
This book taught me a great deal about ethics for both organizations and individuals. Bauer explains it all in plain, simple language that makes any "grey area" clear. He has broken it down into easily digestible chunks that make the complex issues easy to understand. This is a must read for managers, business leaders, and anyone who cares deeply about what it means to live and work in an ethical way.
