Five Ethical Flaws – Part I

The Harvard Business Review published an article titled, “Why Ethical People Make Unethical Choices.” This article highlighted five ways that organizations needlessly provoke so-called good people to make unethical choices.

This week we’re going to discuss these five organizational flaws. The first one is, “It is psychologically unsafe to speak up.”

If an employee believes that no one wants to hear about unethical problems, or worse yet, that the organization, in fact, punishes whistleblowers, they have no motivation to share their experiences. This can create a self-perpetuating unethical culture.
