Maintaining an Ethical Work Culture
Shakespeare's prescription for ethical behavior in the workplace is simple: Do good and you will do well. But he created characters with flaws, shortcomings, and ethical trade-offs: No hero in Shakespeare is without faults, and no villain lacks redeeming, even endearing, qualities.
As we watch them face ethical dilemmas — both in determining what's right to do, and then managing to do what's right — we guide businesses to:
- Protect against corporate fraud
- Assure ethics in accounting and reporting
- Create and follow sound rules and regulations
- Instill corporate values in the minds of managers and employees alike
Shakespeare's real-life situations create the right atmosphere for examining ethics with seriousness, but without sanctimony. The material elicits wonderful discussions of how to do right while succeeding.
