In this chapter “The Introduction” the paper gives us a background and an understanding of ethics and behavior, it also points out the general objectives of the research, the findings and what the hypothesis of the research are mainly on.
It is of great interest that ethics is one of the keys to a successful and better life, not only in organizations and institutions but in individuals too. Ethics focuses on attitudes and behavior, such as evaluating, choosing, acting and considering desirable actions associated with human rights and responsibility for other people.
Our ethical behavior is closely tied to how we view ourselves; how we view ourselves shapes our ethical behavior and our ethical behavior shapes how we view ourselves. Ethical behavior is also shaped by subconscious priming reinforcing the dual roles of conscious and unconscious mental processes.
Therefore, when making an ethical decision, the nurturing of ethical development is of great importance. Ethical judgment plays an important role in ethical decision-making process. From the 1980s, to demonstrate the human decision-making process in ethical situation, scholars proposed different models and indicated the critical influence that ethical judgment exerts on ethical behavior. A central question lies in the role of automaticity in ethical decision-making with both intuition and reasoning seen as simultaneously needed to make ethical choices.
Ethics create a sense of right and wrong and often when the law fails, it is the ethics that may stop organizations and institutions from harming the society or environment. The goal of ethics is not to increase people’s choices. Rather, ethics concerns the quality of the choices that people freely make.
Further investigations into the effectiveness of ethics and behaviour control are still required, the results of the study will clearly show that ethics do have an influence in the organization.
The purpose of this study is to:
This paper intends to explore/analyze the impact of ethics and behavior control in institutions.
The study will help to better understand the question: what does ethics and behavior entail and how does it influence institutions?
