Is your Neighbour Corrupt? Would you know?

Is it our imagination or do we seem to be awash with corruption at the moment?

And no, we are not talking about shady South American drug cartels, we’re talking about supposedly legitimate businesses that buy from our Governments and supply our public services.

A new study by RAND Europe and posted by Marino Donati in Ethics, Procurement, Public sector, Risk said the annual total cost of corruption in Europe is as much as €990bn (£780bn). This is what it looks like: £780,000,000,000 and considering that there are 508m people living in the EU that equates to about £1525 per person. Frightening isn’t it? Read More >>>>>>>>>>>>

Personal Ethics – An Essential Ingredient for Leaders of Tomorrow

Ethics as called in Latin is Ethicus and in Greek Ethikos, stems from the word ‘Ethos’ which means the science of morals. A simple definition of ethics is “a set of principles of right conduct”. Ethics serve as guidelines for analyzing “what is good or bad” in a specific scenario.   They create a framework for determining “right” versus “wrong”, and represent the core value system for every day problem solving. Ethics is the systematic, rational reflection upon a choice of behaviour and it can be taught.

‘Now’ – is always the right time to do the right thing

Generation Y is the fastest-growing segment of the workforce. Known for their optimism, education, collaborative ability, open-mindedness and drive, they are the hottest commodity on the job market. To align, engage and involve them with a vision to profess ‘Ethics’, one has to tell them why, in a way that lets them know its importance and benefits both personally and professionally.

Many a times there is perplexity in understanding the difference between values, virtues, morals and ethics. More often than not we use these words synonymously. A virtue is a quality that shows how human beings ought to be; whereas a value may vary among cultures and may change over time. An example of a value not important to all cultures is “being on time – punctuality.” Virtues are values that have become intrinsic to the personal identity and way of life of a person. If a value is practiced enough, it becomes part of the personality – the character, of a person. Eg. Valuing ‘truth’ leads to honesty, integrity and courage; valuing justice leads to fair-mindedness. Morality is the system through which we determine right and wrong conduct. Morals have a greater social element to values and tend to have a very broad acceptance. We judge others more strongly on morals than values. Ethics is the philosophical study of Morality. Imagine a person who has a strong value of achievement and success. One would expect him to display virtues like determination, discipline, purposefulness, being goal oriented while gaining the skills necessary to accomplish goals. However, one would not know or predict whether he will cheat to get what he wants or “do an honest day’s work each day”. This dimension relates to a matter of ethics and morality.
