Ethics

Ethics in management is concerned with those parts of organizational, operational, occupational and professional conduct that relate to absolute standards and moral principles. Establishing standards of conduct requires reference to questions of what is right and wrong in absolute terms; the desired ends and outcomes; and the ways and means by which the ends and outcomes are achieved. There are additional factors of:

• the nature of working, professional and personal relationships; • attention to the quality of working life; • compliance with the law; • and working effectively within the constraints of social, cultural and religious

customs.
