  1. 1. Importance of Business Ethics Presented By : Naveed Ahmed – M.Arslan – Hafiz Rohail
  2. 2. Introduction • Ethics concern an individual's moral judgment about right and wrong. Decisions taken within an organization may be made by individuals or groups, but whoever makes them will be influenced by the culture of the company. The decision to behave ethically is a moral one; employees must decide what they think is the right course of action. This may involve rejecting the route that would lead to the biggest short-term profit.
  3. 3. Introduction Ethical behavior and corporate social responsibility can bring significant benefits to a business. For example, they may: • Attract customers to the firm's products, thereby boosting sales and profits make employees want to stay with the business, reduce labor turnover and therefore increase productivity • Attract more employees wanting to work for the business, reduce recruitment costs and enable the company to get the most talented employees • Attract investors and keep the company's share price high, thereby protecting the business from takeover. Unethical behavior or a lack of corporate social responsibility, by comparison, may damage a firm's reputation and make it less appealing to stakeholders. Profits could fall as a result.
