Abstract [en]

Global organizations are fast-changing in technological, legal, economic, social, and political structures with competing stakeholders as well as power claims. They are embedded in and interact with multiple changing local, national, and international environments. These environments call for business ethics in many situations for proper interrelation and interactions among businesses and economies. Organizations are starting to adopt ethics programs as a response to the negative publicity associated with interactions with different environments. Maintaining public trust is essential for organizations to receive continued support from suppliers, customers, as well as other stakeholders. Ethics plays an important role in the development of a strategic plan. However, understandably stakeholders are naturally pre-occupied with profitability often completely disregarding the role of ethics and corporate social responsibility, considering the fact that companies in a bid to render agreed returns to their stakeholders are mostly concerned with marketing campaigns and sales advertisement and all other antics to dislodge competitors and meet assigned budget targets. Therefore, it is essential to examine the perceptions of employees on business ethics within the organization in order to properly develop ethics programs. This study attempts to examine the relationship of business ethics with the position, years of experience, and gender in order to develop some ethics program which can match the perceptions of employees on ethics.
