Organizational Ethics
A Practical Approach

Fifth Edition


December 2020 | 528 pages | SAGE Publications, Inc
With an interdisciplinary focus, Organizational Ethics equips students with the knowledge and skills they need to make a positive impact in a variety of workplaces. Author Craig E. Johnson builds the text around interdependent levels of organizational behavior, examining ethics at the individual, group, and organizational levels. Self-assessments, reflection features, and application projects give students ample opportunity to practice their ethical reasoning abilities. The Fifth Edition includes over 25 new case studies on current events and prominent figures, 24 new self-assessments, and new discussions on topics such as cross-cultural ethical conflict and organizational virtue.
