Abstract:

Sex, money, and power. Themes from the latest thriller novel? No, these are the key temptations in a place we all know well: the office. People work most productively in humane environments with high ethical standards. Management must set the tone by talking about, and embodying, values that promote decent behaviour. But how? This book considers key workplace challenges - including sexual harassment, conflicts of interest, greed, and abuse of power - in which grey areas abound ("It may be legal, but ... "). There is hope. As Stephen Goldman shows in this book, companies can move in the right direction by combining clear thinking about right and wrong and an understanding of the requirements the law imposes on conduct. And his simple guidelines for behaviour will stand companies and individuals in good stead when temptations arise. The author draws on his experience as a corporate litigator, Oxford-trained philosopher, and businessperson to show readers how to lead organizations committed to behaving both ethically and legally in all situations. He offers a fresh approach, one that combines illustration and principle. Covering such timely topics as sexual harassment, questionable accounting, discrimination, and ethically corrupt corporate cultures, the author shows readers how to recognize the distinctions between "can" and "should," communicate and promote the organization's commitment to honesty and trust, and measure the rewards. Even better, the book offers methods for solving key problems businesses face day in and day out. The result? Readers will stay on the straight and narrow path - to a great company culture, satisfying work, and financial success.
