Corporate Integrity and Accountability
- George G. Brenkert - Georgetown University Medical School
- What is the current meaning of corporate integrity?
- How should we go about analyzing and responding to unethical and corrupt behavior both at home and abroad?
- What measures can be undertaken by corporations within their own walls to address these problems?
- What groups and perspectives need to be taken into account with regard to CEO compensation?
These are a few of the many topics that the chapters in this book discuss under the heading of corporate integrity and accountability.
The chapters are the product of leading business ethicists—both academic and practitioner—in the U.S. and Europe, resulting in the application of different methodologies, sources, and forms of argument. This gives the reader a sense not only of the complexity of some of the ethical issues business faces, but also the richness of the various resources that are available to address these issues.
Corporate Integrity and Accountability is ideally suited as a text for courses in the following: business ethics, corporate social responsibility, current ethical issues in business, and corporate citizenship.
This is a good collection of essays related to corporate responsibility and accountability. I am recommending this book as background reading for my students, as along with regular textbooks, this book gives them a good in-depth understanding of different topics covered in the module. I find particularly interesting the chapters on "Integrity in the Private, the Public and the Corporate Domain" and "The Next Generation of Codes of Conduct".
This book was used in a graduate course on Business Ethics and was a useful resource for learning and discussion
