I believe that having the right attitude is far more powerful and useful than all the written rules in the world. This course explores the interaction between ethics, attitude and some workplace laws – with multiple examples of differences in international business. The question of whether social responsibility should or should not be a workplace mandate, attitudes and how they affect laws such as those in Title VII, and how moral beliefs changed over time. The examples given are from real workplace experiences and some of them will have the reader wondering whether his or her prior opinion continue to be valid. Finally, there will be a series of tips to make a code of ethics live and breathe inside the workplace.
