Yet, we hardly ever look at what's underneath those concepts, which fundamental rationality drives them and, consequently, we often encounter difficulties in making them work and produce relevant results.
At the Humanistic Management Center we are determined to look at what's underneath and what we oftentimes find underlying the aforementioned concepts is a desire to do the right thing. As individuals we strive to live together with others in ways that are fun, fair and respectful of each other. In analogy responsible business conduct aims to venture out in ways that people who are working together enjoy what they are doing and have fun doing it together; in ways that business partners in transactions are getting a fair deal; and in ways that stakeholders whose lives are touched by a business are treated with respect. And that really is what business ethics is all about.
This executive education offer of the Humanistic Management Center serves as an eye opener by answering three fundamental questions. 1) Why is business ethics a really good idea? 2) How can both, business organizations and civil society reap the benefits from responsibility commitments in the business community? 3) What are the resultant concrete activities that a business should engage in?
