Marianne Jennings, author of "Seven Signs of Ethical Collapse", proposes seven characteristics of companies that have experienced a moral meltdown:
1. Pressure to maintain numbers
2. Fear and silence
3. Young ‘uns and a bigger-than-life CEO
4. Weak board of directors
5. Conflicts of interest overlooked or unaddressed
6. Innovation like no other company
7. Goodness in some areas atones for evil in othershttp://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iILWxK6Z ... K_7k6Qo%3Dhttp://www.scu.edu/ethics/practicing/fo ... signs.html
Do you agree with this list? Would you add other attributes of companies that have lost their ethical compass?
