Business Ethics: A Manual for Managing a Responsible Business Enterprise in Emerging Market Economies
Business enterprises looking for guidance on how to operate in accordance with modern standards of corporate accountability and ethics need look no further than this comprehensive guide to business ethics.
Designed as a training tool for enterprises operating in countries that have just recently transitioned to a market economy, Business Ethics will also be useful to decision-makers in any organization that is seeking to design and implement a business ethics program that conforms to global standards.
The 10 chapters of Business Ethics are organized into five sections that answer the questions:
- What is a responsible business enterprise?
- What constitutes a business ethics program?
- How is a business ethics program structured?
- How is a business ethics program put into practice?
- How can responsible business conduct be achieved?
Numerous practical examples drawn from successful European and American companies are located throughout the text. Worksheets and checklists in each chapter provide guided exercises for students, ensuring that the book is equally appropriate as part of a training program or for self-study.
Fully indexed, Business Ethics also contains an extensive bibliography, a glossary that explains the basic terminology of business ethics, and—in its nine appendices—numerous examples of business ethics policies adopted by various countries and organizations.
According to Peter Eigen, chairman of Transparency International, Business Ethics "is an excellent, comprehensive, and easy-to-use manual on business ethics. Business people, governments, and civil society organizations ready to fight corruption will welcome this practical guide."
