Business Ethics: Local and Global Perspectives
From corporate scandals, corruption and chaos, to sustainability and responsible leadership, questions of ethics in business dominate our news headlines and conversations. As businesses face increasing scrutiny, it is ever-more vital to understand what ethics is, and how it should be applied in practice. Business Ethics: Local and Global Perspectives zooms in on the discipline of business ethics, and guides readers through its theoretical underpinnings and their practical implementation. The title begins by considering the philosophical and legal foundations of business ethics, and proceeds to discuss the frameworks of corporate social responsibility (CSR) and codes of ethics that can be encountered in any modern industry. It also provides detailed discussions and case studies that illustrate how these theories can be applied in real-life business environments. Based on this, readers will be equipped to lead a responsible, ethical workforce, both locally and internationally.
