Description

Morality has its limitations in the business domain, according to a new analysis of available research by Dr Hannes Leroy from RSM and his co-authors. This is despite the fact that there is a widespread belief that morality and business ethics matter in the way organisations act, although there is also a concomitant belief that there is a general lack of attention to morality in the world of leadership. This appears to be true regardless of industry, firm size, or the status and level of a leader in a company.
