DOCUMENT INFO
Description: Prior research suggests that workplace decisions are jointly affected by organizational factors and person-based factors. The purpose of this experimental study -- participants being managers with work experience -- was to examine if corporate values espoused by the management influence everyday workplace decisions and what kind of corporate values allow employees' personality, or ethical values, to manifest themselves. The results show that participants' workplace decisions do indeed become less ethical when corporate values adopt a very profit-oriented approach to reward and recognize employees compared to when corporate values reward integrity or when no corporate values are professed. Further, when corporate values are driven by financial profits, employees' ethical standard is no longer a significant explanatory variable regarding the ethics of their workplace decisions. In contrast, ethical standard is a significant explanatory variable regarding the ethics of workplace decisions when corporate values reward integrity and good business practices, or when such values are not professed at all.
