Corporate Ethics

Posted by Stephen Crilly on March 17, 2011 at 2:39 PM

The article from The Huffington Post (March 17, 2011) linked below leads to Ethisphere’s list of the 110 World’s Most Ethical Companies. Having an awareness of the companies on the list is part of encouraging higher standards of corporate ethics. The subject of business ethics has its foundation in principles of balanced-virtue. With continuing grass roots pressure, business ethics can evolve toward even higher standards. http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2011/03/17/microsoft-most-ethical-company_n_837003.html

Here in Silicon Valley, there is a trend starting in business where the traditional hierarchy of management is being exchanged for a more balanced structure where a manager's main purpose is to create an environment conducive to creativity. It is exciting to think how great a company could become with balanced-virtue.

Linda,
Thanks for your comment on Silicon Valley companies. Yes, the corporate atmosphere certainly can affect creativity. Part of the process toward achieving higher ethics in business is understanding virtues in terms of success, rather than just in terms of morals or religion. Creativity is a virtue, but it is not necessarily associated with religious concepts. One might feel inspiration, which could have some connection to spirituality (in its broadest sense), depending upon the context.
