Accepted company goals include corporate social responsibility, acting ethically, and practicing sustainability; but, the meaning of these goals and how to put them into practice in a global setting is not as clean and dried. The Global Business Ethics (PDF) guide cuts through the clutter to provide a consistent basis for ethical decision-making in the context of the complexities of the international business scene.
This textbook will lead the reader beyond the realm of theory and into the domain of real-life business decisions. It is underpinned by theory and includes worked-through examples of ethical issues and the answers to such dilemmas. The readers get the confidence and the abilities they need to address the ethical issues that they are currently facing as a result of using practical tools such as decision trees and suggested principles to apply in dilemma scenarios. The e-book “Global Business Ethics” provides its readers with a one-of-a-kind working code of ethics that serves as a model and includes instructions for readers to follow when adapting and implementing the code. Hershey's, Walmart, Ford, Nike, Citibank, Harley-Davidson, Johnson & Johnson, The Body Shop, and Procter & Gamble are some of the companies that have been studied as case studies.
The complicated relationship that exists between law and ethics in international business is broken down into its component parts in a chapter devoted to the legal dimensions of ethics. In the third section, we will take a more in-depth look at how ethics might be applied in real-world business situations. Global Business Ethics explores the several major theories of ethics, including an investigation into the role that quantification of ethics plays, and explains how the principles derived from these theories can be utilized to improve the quality of business judgments.
This ebook has a variety of online supporting resources available, such as presentation slides, an instructor's manual, and appendices (sold separately).
