Description & Coverage
Description:

While skeptics once saw the concept of business ethics as an oxymoron, modern businesses are proving them wrong. Success depends not only on educating young professionals about ethical practices, but on the implementation of these practices in all aspects of a company.

The Handbook of Research on Business Ethics and Corporate Responsibilities explores the fundamental concepts that keep companies successful in the era of globalization and the Internet. Investigating the implementation of best practices and how ethics can be taught to the next generation of business experts, this handbook is an essential reference source for students, academics, business managers, or anyone interested in the increasingly interdisciplinary field of business ethics and its applications in the world today.

Coverage:

The many academic areas covered in this publication include, but are not limited to:

  • Corporate Social Responsibility
  • E-Business Practices
  • Global Responsibility
  • Organizational Integrity
  • Supply Chain Sustainability
  • Sustainability and Competitive Advantage
  • Trust in Business Social Networks
Reviews and Testimonials

International contributors in management, organizational psychology, and ethics present the latest thinking in business ethics. Including chapters on theoretical issues and models and addressing topics such as business ethics in the information age, game-theoretic insights on business ethics in emerging economies, and the case of high-fructose corn syrup, subjects also include Starbucks’ corporate culture around the world, business ethics for mobile business social networks, and the adoption of supply chain sustainability in developing countries.
