Abstract:
In recent years, the business world has been riddled with scandals and fraud that consistently make international headlines. These transgressions do not just occur overnight. Rather, they begin with the kinds of moral slip-ups that take place in offices regularly. They are based in poor leadership, misguided systems, loose protocols, and, most of all, innate human behavior. This paper examines six ethical dilemmas that are the result of psychological behavior: the fudge factor, slippery slope, conflict of interest, ego depletion, revenge, and social group cheating. I explore solutions to these issues that come from a series of academic studies as well as from real-life cases in business environments to minimize or eliminate the associated moral transgressions in the workplace.
