We all inhabit a complex working world - a world of unrelenting pressure, divided loyalties and fierce competition. We face tough decisions, every day. Sometimes we make these decisions, not sure whether they are the right thing to do - or, indeed, whether they are morally right. In the shadow of Enron and WorldCom, you need to be sure that you do the right thing; and that it's ethical. You need to be able to think on your feet and approach the tough decisions with confidence. Divided into six key sections, each chapter in this fascinating book considers a modern-day business dilemma, from romance in the office and whistle-blowing to the effect of stock options on employee behaviour and what happens when a code of ethics clashes with executive actions. With case studies and real-life examples, this book helps you think through the issues and come up with solutions; it helps you to do the right thing.
