Guillem Casoliva-Cabana guillem. Promoting ethical culture in firms through the adoption of effective ethics and compliance programs has been a cornerstone of the United States Federal Sentencing Guidelines for Organizations, introduced in by the federal Sentencing Commission. Firms can alleviate the harshest aspect of criminal liability by showing adherence to these guidelines, and thus mitigate the potential range of fines imposed on them in the event of wrongdoing. Providing incentives for companies to self-regulate has fueled widespread adoption of ethics and compliance programs. Yet, wrongdoing still persists.
Multidimensional Ethical Dilemmas of Contemporary Organizations: A Literature Review
A New Model for Ethical Leadership
Background: Today's healthcare system requires that nurses have strong medical-technical competences and the ability to focus on the ethical dimension of care. For nurses, coping with the ethical dimension of care in practise is very difficult. Often nurses cannot act according to their own personal values and norms. This generates internal moral distress, which has a negative impact on both nurses and patients. Objectives: The objective of this review is a thorough analysis of the literature about nurses' ethical practise particularly with regard to their processes of ethical reasoning and decision making and implementation of those decisions in practise. Design: We conducted an extensive search of the electronic databases Medline, Embase, Cinahl, and PsycInfo for papers published between January and September
Nurses' ethical reasoning and behaviour: a literature review
Thomas, Minnesota Follow. This literature review identifies characteristics of ethical business cultures, describes factors, considered to be important in developing such cultures, describes current practices of developing ethical culture programs, and discusses the role of HRD in developing ethical business cultures. We argue that ethical thinking and behavior can be learned and internalized as a result of work-based interpretive interactions, and this learning process constitutes an important part of organizational learning. Therefore, to help the organization develop an ethical culture, HRD needs to play a key role in several interrelated activities which include: culture change efforts, focused on the creation of conditions, conducive to ethical behaviors; creation of a dynamic program of ethical training for employees on all levels of the organization; and development of up-to-date codes of ethics.
