Intro to Business Ethics

Business ethics are the moral and ethical beliefs that guide the values, behaviors, and decisions of a business organization and the individuals with the organization. Business ethics is the foundation to building a strong ethical culture, principled leaders, and an organization focused on more than just the bottom line.

Why is Business Ethics Important    

Reputation is everything in business. An organization’s reputation as an ethical company has value reaching far beyond a balance sheet.

It takes 20 years to build a reputation and five minutes to ruin it. If you think about that, you’ll do things differently.
